The rain cools down the wool, so it expands. This counteracts the contraction during the hot period when the rain is just starting out.

Because new dirt is created at an alarmingly high rate.

Why is the official international airline pilot's language English and not Arabic?
Why is it when you hear someone talking about a carrot top the person's hair isn't green?

Becuase the UN speaks English as a primary language.

Because people forget that the first carrots were white. And besides, it's carrot top, not carrot top top or carrot leaves top.

Since there have been over 250 million Monopoly games sold world wide I don't think one commission is enough.

Fridges don't have lights in,are you sure it's the fridge?

I know in the US fridges can easily be confused with the garage Is there a car in there?

What I want to know is, where does the little man that turns the light on and off in the fridge live and does he eat my goodies at night? ~ More to the point, WHERE does he go to the toilet?? Maybe that chocolate moose isn't just chocolate?...

You guys have some strange refrigerators. Mine don't have little men in them OR cars.

@ Rikky - We call these lights here in America, what do you call them over there?

I could be wrong but I think Rikky was referring to the size of the fridges over here, average size of a fridge in UK is about 1/2 that of standard fridges in North America.

I wonder why THAT is?

Yes, most UK fridges do have oil lamps in them to light them, but recently people have been complaining about the noise of the steam engine needed to power the coolant pump. As a result, the switch to electric fridges is beginning and the oil lamps are being phased out in favour of electric lights. This is, however, a slow process, and it is expected that the rollout time will take up until approximately 1879. Until that point, hospitals should continue to expect cases of paraffin poisoning from contaminated ground beef. It is recommended that the owners of refrigerators equipped with oil lamps should avoid ground beef and switch to tenderloin wherever possible, as this avoids the risk of paraffin poisoning.

We will now return to your regularly scheduled programming...

CANNONBALL!
