Organic Twinkies

Lunar air-conditioning

100% compostable pistol

Tunneling to the moon

Rhythmic pole vaulting on ice

Zippered socks


Emissions-free strip mining vehicles

Encrypted billboards

The giagantic 3D TV at Stevie Wonder’s house

Jenga – the car dashboard edition

I'd like some zippered socks!

Mrsupole said...

Any type of Twinkies make no sense. Or is it eating Twinkies make no sense. Oh how much I miss eating Twinkies, now that really makes no sense.

God bless.

Mrsupole said...

Playing "Globs" makes no sense either, but it is hard to stop trying to beat the other Glob players around the world.

God bless.

Subby said...

"Rhythmic pole vaulting on ice"...!

And I can just imagine what they'd charge for organic Twinkie$$$$...

Subby said...

Adding to th' list:

Political Science

Garbology

Ratatouille ( I mean, where's the rat? )

Life, the universe and everything

Wisdom teeth

...um...er...!

Roy said...

Can't think of anything at the moment, but I think I like the idea of zippered socks.

nonamedufus said...

Key pads with brail on drive-thru ATM machines always had me scratching my head.

G-Man said...

They've already tunneled to the Moon.

And Stevie Wonder's TV has a Braille Setting, it was a 55 Dollar option!

Other than that Great list!!

Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

PattiKen said...

Funny! I wish I could think of some of the absurdities I've seen. Alas, no.

Elizabeth said...

I've seen buttoned socks before! Maybe zippered socks are next!

The Incredible Woody said...

I think the compostable pistol could come in handy.

Eric Alder said...

Very amusing 55, VE!

Roy Scribner said...

Things that make no sense, hmmm...well, I'n driving (actually wifee-poo is driving) over Shasta Lake right now and reading VE on my BlackBerry.

Joey Polanski said...

Diet toothpicks.

Joey Polanski said...

Powdered water.

Alice Audrey said...

Actually, the compostable gun makes a little too much sense.

Cheryl said...

Whoa, hold on VE. What's nonsensical about zippered socks? Sheesh! Some people's children. Give 'em 55 words and they become nuts. Oh wait, you already were. Carry on.

Monkey Man said...

Hearing ear dogs. How do they translate?

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I almost said no comment, but that wouldn't make sense as you have to comment to get counted.

Brian Miller said...

VE...it feels like forever...i know it has and i am sorry...that is how strip miners feel earth concious you know...nice 55.

Megan said...

I'm going to have to go back and read that list again. Because nothing on it made any sense at all...

TALON said...

Organic twinkies? Definitely no sense whatsoever. I'm laughing about Stevie's 3D television!

Fun 55!

Jannie Funster said...

I've never seen Stevie's tv, then again neither has he.

organic twinkies would I gladly eat my fill of!! Seriously, I'd love those.

Janna said...

*non-alcoholic beer
*fat-free butter
*radioactive origami
*Stoplights which say "Eh; just surprise me."

Thanks for another 55. :)

Here's mine.

ReformingGeek said...

Evil Twin will take one of the compostable pistols, please.

Carla said...

What? No dashboard edition of Jenga? I'm crushed.

Jaime said...

did you see the pair of shoes where both are left feet?

lime said...

i'd kinda like to see the zippered socks....

VE said...

Nursemyra – Somehow I could picture you in them! Oh, and I read your post on the three years…I had no idea; I guess I haven’t been reading that long or often but I can’t even imagine how hard that must have been.

Mrsupole – Ours is not to question Twinkies. They just are. It’s one of those mysteries…like gravity.

Mrsupole – I am glad I do not know what Globs is…

Subby – Knowing my store, they’d never stock them…just like the Pop Tarts! Damn them…

Subby – Wisdom teeth…good one! The first to have problems…

Roy – Until they pull off all your leg hair that is…

Nonamedufus – Of course, that alone does make one wonder. The answer is actually very logical. They mass produce ATM keys and save money by doing so rather than making a special set for only drive-thru machines.

g-man – Who is “they” that have tunneled to the moon? I don’t believe them! It’s my phrase and they can’t use it! ;)

pattiken – You need to watch more TV then!

Elizabeth – Were you living with the Amish at the time?

Incredible woody – I don’t want the details…

Eric – Thanks…

Roy – Ha! That’s the only thing that makes sense! Good man…

Joey – Ha! Good ones…

Alice – I see your point…actually…don’t point it at me…

Cheryl – It’s just what might get caught up in the zipper that has me concerned…

Monkey man – Ha! Isn’t that an option with Alta Vista’s Babelfish?

Perpetual chocoholic – You said it…and now you get a tally for it

Brian – Strip miners can feel? You learn something every day!

Megan – Exactly…

Talon – I wonder if Stevie bought the DVD recorder with it too…

Jannie – They keep downsizing Stevie’s TV as a prank on him. He currently has an Apple phone up above the mantle where a 72” screen was…

Janna – Yes, I must agree with all of those…

Reforminggeek – I should have known! You Texan’s and your guns! ;)

Carla – It’s really challenging in construction zones…

Jaime – That’s not right! ;)

Lime – Why does that not surprise me…

CatLadyLarew said...

I'm with Dufus... I also wonder about those braille keypads at the drive through ATMs.

VE said...

catladylarew - I actually explained it to him earlier in the comments...
