Donald Duck Wears No Pants

This week's task:
"The following statements are true. Your job is to explain why you think they are true. Just offer up your usual amusing quips! I'm betting we'll have some hysterical responses. Remember that somewhere somebody in the world needs to know these things and your tax dollars probably paid for the research that went into proving them true."

1. More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed in plane crashes.

i don't blame the donkeys...

2. Donald Duck comics were banned in Finland because he doesn't wear pants.

why would it bother them?

3. If you keep a Goldfish in the dark room, it will eventually turn white.

why would anyone want to keep a light-loving creature in a dark room?

4. The shortest war in history was between Zanzibar and England in 1896. Zanzibar surrendered after 38 minutes. Why were they fighting in the first place?

Anglo-Zanzibar War

maybe because the sultan wouldn't share his harem

5. Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

because women use their brains more...

6. The ant always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.

as long as they don't drink alcohol during work hours, WHO  CARES???

7. An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

with that size of a brain, i'd say the ostrich is luckier than most people. 
at least he gets to use it.
8. In England, the Speaker of The House is not allowed to speak.

well, no talk, no mistake, right? he might forget he has the microphone on during unguarded moments... then end up in "breaking news"

9. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you cannot sink into quicksand.

 "No Swimming"... this is the better advice

10. On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily.

unfortunately, parents get to realize it only much, much later...

12. The electric chair was invented by a dentist.
 just as well...

Never make an ant a designated driver!

Mr. Lance said...

Could you please ask your Ostrich to stop checking up on me. He is making me uncomfortable.

I enjoyed your Answers

The information about the ant experiment was very good.

Thank you for plugging BlogBlast For Peace. I appreciate that very much.

Your pictures are always so creative and hysterical. And I think the harem answer is perfection!

No dungeon for you. I can't say the same for some of the other players....
