25 Things That Keep Getting Weirder The More You Think About Them

Some things are just super normal. Like Bob from accounting. We know, he’s not really a thing, but he’s just so normal. There’s not even a single little quirk you can put your finger on. But most people/things aren’t like that. Take forks for example. It is basically a spoon…with little shards coming out of it. And you stick that in your mouth. Does that make more sense than using chopsticks? Or your hand? Or what about your hair? There is basically a constantly growing rug on your head. And that rug consists of millions of little, dead strings that grow straight out of your scalp. It’s kind of gross when you break it down. And why do men where ties? It’s a floppy piece of cloth that hangs from your neck that’s supposed to make you look distinguished and formal. Why don’t we hang it from our backs? Okay, these questions might not impress all of you. But bear with us, there are sure to be at least a few questions that will make you smile. There aren’t? Why are you reading the introduction after already having read the list anyway? Go back and read the list again. These are 25 things that keep getting weirder the more you think about them.
