I'm not sure whether to laugh or gouge my eyes out...
Don't gouge your eyes out dude. I have all the ingredients I need. 'Preciate ya though.

Considering "I Wish" should be my middle name, I wonder what I'd see if I looked in the Mirror of Erised?

I was thinking it would be fun to fill the exhaust pipe of this loud car in my neighborhood with eggs, just to see if the mongoloid who owns said car would eat the ensuing omelet.

You can't make an omelette without cheese. Cheddar for me.

Touchless soap dispensers puzzle me. Does it really matter what you touch BEFORE you wash your hands?

Yes, but how did they even know there was a way to eat it without dying????? I'm serious when I say I think about this ALOT. It sort of drives me nuts.
I think about these kinds of things all the time. Especially when it comes to food. Like, what could possibly have motivated that first person who saw a chicken essentially drop an egg from its bottom and think, "Man, I'm totally going to eat that thing."

OMG, Sommer, that is so true. So true. XD

Hahahahaaaa! It was probably the same person who thought eating snails seemed like a good idea. OR, maybe it was a trick they played on the village/cave idiot, but said idiot had the last laugh! :D

It's an Australian word for chicken. I used to follow an Australian blog about gardening and the blogger kept chooks. That's how I learned.

Ohhh, nope, nope, nope. Can't be that. Chickens got no cheeks! Ipso facto Q.E.D. So it is proven and all that. You'll have to try harder than that to trick me!

I also ponder those things a lot. I wonder who first thought to cook food. I imagine it went something like this: Oh, crap. I dropped my mastodon in the fire! But it is delicious! Now, pass the pepper.
