Did You Ever Wonder?

Did you ever wonder why Disney ladies have such names? Snow White, Cinderella, Belle (Beauty & The Beast), Ariel?
Did you ever wonder why the good characters in fairy tales had perfect trim bodies while the villains were fat? I mean, look at Cinderella's step sisters!
Did you ever wonder why Prince Eric in the Little Mermaid, is the only Prince of all the fairy tales who does not sing? Thank God for that, guess they realized Ariel's voice was way better than his!
Did you ever wonder what would happen if your wishes as a child came true? If mine came true people would be walking with their hands while their feet were up in the sky.
Did you ever wonder how come when you stare at yourself long enough in the mirror, you cannot catch your breath?
Did you ever wonder why water had to go down the drain in an anticlockwise manner?
Did you ever wonder why Super heroes have to wear tight fighting clothes? I mean Superman was literally bulging out of his suit, and Batman-don't even get me started on the ears, then there's Green Lantern-why the armor? Aren't they superheroes?
Did you ever wonder what would happen if there was no music to listen to? I mean, no Grammophone, walkmans, and gosh! no Ipods!
Did you ever wonder what happened to the good old weatherman on KBC? The one with paper cuttings of the sun, clouds, and rain-and he'd pin them on different parts of the map of Kenya to indicate the weather patterns? Now, that was Art and Genius!
Did you ever wonder what happened to the whole idea of television stations shutting down at midnight after playing the national anthem? We didn't pay so much electricity bills then, and kids got enough rest, parents got enough sleep and no one complained so much about having to work the next morning!
Did you ever wonder what happened to outdoor games? Nowadays, why burn calories all in the name of play when you can simply hook your computer to some power and let your fingers and eyes play?
Did you ever wonder why people who cannot speak English always say "me no speak no English?" Sounds like English to me?
Did you ever wonder why rockstars used to destroy their guitars after performing? Thank God the electric guitar came along-that stuff is so expensive you can't bash it- and just when you think your are tempted to, your manager whispers in your ear, that it'd come out of your salary! Yeah, rock stars get paid to rock!
Did you ever wonder what it'd be like if we spoke Elizabethan English? Dude: "Thine eyes, my love, o sweet melody of my heart-thou takest my breath away" Girl: Uh?
Did you ever wonder how Atlas did manage to hold onto the sphere?
Did you ever wonder why Poseidon, though God of the Sea, had a pitch fork? I mean, aren't pitch forks for gardeners?
Did you ever wonder as you were reading all this, where is she going with this?
