Why Oh Why?

By Jo Hunter, Dec 2011

WHY OH WHY? – asks Mrs Jo Hunter of St Peter’s Road – do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet Coke? Why do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds in the road and put our useless junk in the garage? Why does Tesco make sick people walk all the way to the rear of the store for their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front? Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavour, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons? You know that indestructible black box that is used on planes? Why don’t they make the whole plane out of that stuff? Why don’t you ever see the headline ‘Psychic Wins Lottery’? Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called ‘rush hour’? Why didn’t Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

A plane made from black-box material would never get off the ground, it would be far too heavy.
