You may have been wondering, “How funny are my internal organs?” Well, here they are, in descending order of humor:

My cousin occasionally shares with me her lexical concerns. Her name is Judi, so I call them Judiisms:

- Why are things black and white, and never white and black?
- Why does it rain cats and dogs, but not dogs and cats?
- Why salt and pepper, but never pepper and salt?

- If something is “needless to say,” why do people go ahead and say it?
