Brain Ponderisms

The last few blogs have been dealing with rather heavy topics so it's time for something a bit lighter. Ponderisms, for example. What is a ponderism? Good question. The word ponder means to think about, consider, or weigh in one’s mind. So perhaps a ponderism is something that someone’s mind has thought about, considered, asked, or weighed. Following are some ponderisms:

  • Can you cry under water?
  • There are two types of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.
  • Do individuals who are illiterate really get the full impact of Alphabet Soup?
  • Stop taking every little thing in life so seriously—no one gets out alive anyway.
  • If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?
  • Take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
  • How can one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
Send me your favorites. We'll do a few more tomorrow.
