Why is it…

Why is it that when I ask for a pair of hands, a brain comes attached? – Henry Ford, as quoted in The Personal MBA

Ran across this quote this morning, and my brain automatically started going through permutations that ranged from the silly to the scandalous to the profound.

  • Why is it that when I ask for a pair of tits, a brain comes attached?
  • Why is it that when I ask for a pair of hands, a cock comes attached?
  • Why is it that when I ask for a cock, a dick comes attached?
  • Why is it that when I ask for polyamory, a metamour comes attached?
  • Why is it that when I ask for monogamy, compromise comes attached?
  • Why is it that when I ask for a (poly or mono) relationship, difficult conversations come attached?
  • Why is it that when I ask for a decision, a consequence comes attached?
  • Why is it that when I ask for an experience, a memory comes attached?

Got any more? I’m going to put it out to the twitterverse under a #whyisit tag. And please, these will, by their nature, stereotypical and politically incorrect. Be clever: refute their argument with your own “why is it?”

If you can’t think of one that refutes it…well, maybe you’ve learned something.

One thought on “Why is it…

  • Ooh, I like this. Okay… lets try a few:

    i* Why is it that when I ask for a ship, an ocean comes attached?/i
    i* Why is it that when I ask for a warrior, a child comes attached?/i
    i* Why is it that when I ask for an answer, an explanation comes attached?/i
    i* Why is it that when I ask for nothing, my own attachments come attached?/i
    i* Why is it that when I ask for a sandwich, a tomato /ialwaysi comes attached? Seriously… always…/i

    Thank you… Ill be thinking of these all tomorrow, Im sure. 🙂
