Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it's called cargo?
2Why do kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

3Why is LEMON JUICE mostly artificial ingredients, but DISH WASHING LIQUID contains real lemons?
4If a parsley farmer is sued, can they garnish his wages?

Why do you press harder on a remote-control when you know the battery is dead?

Why are they called apartments, when they're all stuck together?
5Why is it that if someone tells you that there are 1 billion stars in the universe you will believe them, but if they tell you a wall has wet paint you will have to touch it to be sure?
6Why do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight?

Why do you always find things in the last place you looked?
7How does a thermos know if the drink should be hot or cold?

Why do you bake cookies and cook bacon?
