    Actually I asked a similar question to a Teacher many years ago, and she replied that (in this case, a Fat Chance would be a Sarcastic reply, where as a Slim Chance would be considered a more Sincere reply). Since she was an English teacher, I took that answer to be "Official".

    Okay here goes...

    If the little black boxes on planes always survive the plane crash, why don't they make the plane out of the same material they make the black box out of?

    Speaking of black boxes, why do they call them black boxes when they are painted bright RED?

    Why do we park on driveways and drive on parkways?

    Why is one goose called a goose, and two gooses are called geese? If we apply the same logic then one moose would be called a moose, and two moose should be called meese?

    Why are there no real answers to ANY why questions?
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
