Things that don't make sense !!
« on: February 25, 2014, 11:10:59 PM »
I thought I would start this thread to ask the question WHY ??? ?

Why does the word "Raspberry"  have a "P" in it ????

Please add and words or phrases you like.

Because the outside of a raspberry is like a rasp.

Why in the world of dropped consonants do the British say "Herbal" and the Americans say "Erbal"?  Shouldn't it be the other way around?

How about IRREGARDLESS ???

The problem "regardless" already means something isn't worth regarding (that's why the "less" is there) so adding the "IR" to it means... it's worth regarding again? 

No Idea !!!!!
