    All the talk of PI day got me thinking of a question more important than any simple mathematics;



    Why do we call it cheese cake instead of cheese pie?


    It's served in a crust, traditionally round in shape and served in wedges.

    (stolen from comedian Steven Wright if I remember correctly)

    Why do we park in a driveway but drive in a park way.

    If a convenience store is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year, why do they have locks on the door?

    Why do they call it a hot water heater? You don't need to heat hot water.

    Why is there an expiration date on sour cream?

    Why does your nose run, and your feet smell?

    If you are in a car travelling at the speed of light and you turn on your headlights, will anything happen?

    Why if something is delivered by car is it a shipment, but if delivered by a ship it's cargo?

    Why do they call that drawer in a refrigerator a crisper? Shouldn't it be called a rotter?

    I think Steven Wright did that line as well.

    I actually asked a person working in a 7-11 that, was just goofing with them.

    They however had a good answer.

    In case of Power issues and also criminal issues (like after a robbery).

    Steven Wright is great. His deadpan style meant he'd never move on to sitcom fame but he's much funnier than 99% of the comedians out there.

    Agreed.

    He has landed a few bit parts...He is the DJ voice in Res-Dogs.

    But still he always made me laugh.

    Here's one why do they put Braile numbers on a Drive up ATM????

    Why when your looking for a house\address for the first time do we tend to turn the Radio down?

    Why do airplanes have 2 flotation devices per person but no parachutes?

    A relative of mine who's in a wheelchair was taking the training from a major banking chain to do computer programing, data entry etc.

    He pulled a good one on the instructor the 2nd day of class when he raised his hand and declared, "I don't think I can continue in this class". "What's the problem?" asked the instructor. "Well, the computer keeps telling me I've made an Invalid entry, and I find it really insulting!"

    "I like to fill my bathtub up halfway, then turn on the shower and pretend I'm in a submarine that's been hit."

    I got home the other day and everything in my apartment had been stolen and replaced with an exact replica. I asked my room mate what happened and he said "Who the hell are you.""

    That's great. I have a similar one, though not as good. I was out to dinner with a large group and one girl in the group was deaf. Three of the girls in the group were learning sign language with her. She was eating a taco and signing them at the same time. I told one of the girls, "tell her not to talk with her hands full."
