• In the 1950's, why was the phone usually in the hall?

• Why do most car horns honk in the key of F?

• How long does a jiffy last?

• Why were red, yellow, and green selected for traffic lights?

• Where did the term "pink slip" come from?

• Why do people honk their horns in a wedding procession, but not in a funeral procession?

• How can you tell whether a snail is sleeping?

• What did the Katydid do?

• Before sliced bread, what was the best thing?

• What does the antipasto have against the pasta?

• Who decided the order of the letters in the alphabet?

• Why does "oversight" mean both "watching over it" and "didn't see it."

Just asking.
