Politicians and nappies should be changed frequently...and for the same reason!!!

Vanessa - I always remember G-G's remark about thongs.  She said they looked like your bum was eating them :-)

Why do slugs and snails eat my expensive bedding plants, but leave the weeds alone.

Hi
         Why are they making pictures so dark now I watch one on abc last night and most of the time I was looking at a black screen even the ones in broad day you could hardly make their faces out. Are they saving on the gas bill or hirng crappy actors.

Why do people drive to chuck a few bottles into a re-cycling bin? They'd save the planet more by staying at home.

My daughter used to have a saturday job in BHS and she would complain about the women who start hunting in their handbags for their cheque book AFTER they've been standing in a queue and AFTER the goods had been put into bags.

It's a word wide phenomenon.
I just go with the flow nowadays. Usually giving just a wry smile.
Life is short as shown recently by a few men under my age waking up dead!

Anyone remember money cards being introduced on Tomorrows World?

Why do we use the word "why" when we don't have to ??.......  for example, " The reason why he left the room is uncertain" would make just as much sense if the "why" was left out. So why would anybody use a "why" when we don't need a "why" ??. I don't know why, do you ?

Did you see what I just did  ;)

I've heard of unisex but why is it being forced upon our language - usually aided and abetted by the media. For instance, a woman who acts on stage or in films is now often called an actor instead of actress. And a woman who does something brave is referred to as a hero instead of heroine. For God's sake WHY? These days, I would have thought there would be a  backlash from the fair sex but they seem to be  indifferent.

Why don't people understand the difference between 'amount' and 'number'. How often do we hear people say "There were a large amount of people at the concert" instead of "There were a large number of people at the concert".

Both these ways of speaking seem to be recent innovations but I can't think where they came from.
