The Wednesday Morning “Why?”

1. Why did a distinguished-looking dude of about 60 and wearing a suit that had to cost over $5,000, get on the elevator with me and a few other folks this morning, hunt and hunt and hunt … and hunt the number buttons on his side of the elevator for a good ten seconds, conclude that the number 30 was missing from this particular side of the elevator (it wasn’t), walk over to the OTHER side of the elevator, easily find the number 30 that was “missing” from the other side, and then punch it with satisfaction, never realizing that the rest of us on the elevator were holding in some serious laughter. How is it that someone that stupid can make enough money to afford to wear a suit like that? It’s not like the numbers are on there randomly. 30 is between 29 and 31. Lord.

2. Why are there lots of attractive, smart, successful, cool women in the world that have trouble finding husbands, yet THIS woman was married to four different men at one time, including the cartoonist for the Trib, Randy Bish? She would just go to Vegas and guys would marry her.

I’m not trying to be mean, but the question had to be asked. She’s no Wendy Bell. And perhaps Randy’s latest joke IRS 1040 was a bit of an outlet for him? (click for larger image).

Regardless, check out the whole tax form. Hilarious shit.

3. Why don’t I care who gets the slots license? I mean, if you put the casino in Station Square you will have a traffic nightmare, and if you put a casino next to the Science Center, that’s just stupid, but I really don’t care that much. I certainly don’t care as much as these people.

Whoa. Chill. Hey look! There’s the Penguin mascot in there!

    I kind of figure that husbands # 5 and # 6 are hiding under that dress of hers!
