Why does it always rain cats and dogs but never toads and frogs?
Why, when an Englishman’s home is his castle, does he paint it pastel?
What are seamarks and why should they care about the shipwrecks of others?
And isn’t it incest if all men are brothers?

If all things are known and there is no desire,
Then why worry about going from the frying pan into the fire?
And if Doctor Foster went to Gloucester in a shower of rain,
When the sun shines can he not go there again?
