Ask A Stupid Question Day

Well, it's official.... September 28th is Ask a Stupid Question Day. It's your opportunity to speak up, and to ask all those questions you were afraid to ask. All those questions that you thought were too stupid or dumb to ask, have been piling up all year long. Today is the day to unload them. C'mon give it a try. Nobody will laugh......we hope. This goes perfectly with my little column to the right --> "Things that make you go hmmmm" So I guess Ask a Stupid Question Day is everyday for me!!!

The roots of this special day goes back to the 1980's. At the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. Kids sometimes hold back, fearing their question is stupid, and asking it will result in ridicule.Teachers created this day on September 28, If it fell on a weekend, they would celebrate it on the last day of the month.

So, okay... I'll start
How do they get a deer to cross at that yellow road sign? *
How do you get off a non-stop flight? *
How do you know when you've run out of invisible ink? *
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? *
If a jogger runs at the speed of sound, can he still hear his Walkman? *
If a pig is sold to the pawn shop, is it considered a ham-hock? *
If blind people wear dark glasses, why don't deaf people wear earmuffs? *
If I save time, when do I get it back? *
If rabbits' feet are so lucky, then what happened to the rabbit? *
