7 And Three Quarters Nutty

7 and Three Quarters Nutty Questions

Don’t just answer these questions with quick one word answers, but give them some body! Throw yourself into it.


A cowboy rode into town on Friday. He stayed in town for three days and rode out on Friday. How is that possible?

This happened so long ago, during the ‘Dragnet’ era.   The cowboy was so smitten with the show he named his horse after Joe Friday.

A rooster laid an egg on top of the barn roof. Which way did it roll?

This is a trick question. We all know roosters don’t lay eggs.  What it means is that the rooster put the egg on top of the barn roof.   Roosters are known for having an avian variation of manual dexterity. The direction of the egg’s roll~not egg roll~depends upon the direction of the wind.

A truck driver is going down a one way street the wrong way, and passes at least ten cops. Why is he not caught?

Doughnuts!!  It’s always those accursed doughnuts!!

A farmer had 752 sheep and took one shot that got them all. How did he do it?

It was a special shot glass.

What word is spelled incorrectly in every single dictionary?


What starts with “e” and ends with “e” but only has one letter in it?

It’s a tie between eye and envelope.

What two keys can’t open any door?

G #, D♭

A man went outside in the pouring rain with no protection, but not a single hair on his head got wet. How come?

He always stood sideways toward the direction of the wind.



Would you rather be trapped in an elevator full of men with BO, three soaked dogs, a basket filled with week old smelly socks or a box filled with used nappies?

The dogs, because they borrowed eggs from the rooster.

Would you rather look like an octopus, act like an octopus or be an octopus?

I’d rather look like an octopus because then I could laugh at people who are gullible enough to mistake me for a squid.

If you had the world’s attention for 30 seconds, what would you say?

I’d warn people about the risk of leaving out the tricky ‘R’ in Library and February.

Would you rather be able to copy and paste in real life, or undo in real life?

Copy and paste, because it’s more easily treatable by therapy.

Answers to be provided before you answer the questions on the underside of the outer edge of a defrosted ice cube, not thawed  mind, but most assuredly defrosted!


Here’s another 7 And Three Quarters Nutty post from A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepip.


Where Is She?

Sunday's Whirligig logo

Policemen arrived at the home of Mrs. O’Reilly, a kindly old woman in our neighborhood.  People would always Say she was so quiet and polite.  When the constables went inside, all they saw were a box of Tissues, her Rosary~which she had prayed daily without  fail for several decades~and an expired bus Pass.



Eventually they  climbed her Dusty stairway to her Attic.  One of the officers, upon peering out a Window, in the direction of  a nearby Stream, saw a couple he couldn’t recognize.  The woman was carrying something that looked strikingly similar to one of Mrs. O’Reilly’s Purses.



Eventually, after having thoroughly searched her house, they put all her personal effects, including old Shoes, into a marked Bag, and decided to Go back to their station.



This is my first attempt at  Sunday’s Whirlygig.   This week, we use the words purses, attic, dusty, pass, rosary, shoes, tissues, window, stream, go, bags, say from David Keplinger’s ‘Making Arrangements’.


Quite A Letdown

It was a quiet Monday morning.  Humpty Dumpty arrived promptly at his job interview. 



“It says on your resume, Mr. Dumpty,” the interviewer pointed out, “That you have quite a long history of being a symbol.”



Never the least bit shy about tooting his own horn, Humpty pointed out that “Yes, sir, I’ve represented, over the years, everything from Adam and Eve to the Protestant Rebellion of 1517. 



“Dumpty,” the personnel manager went on to explain, “I think there’s been a bit of a  mistake here.  While I’m quite favorably impressed with your outstanding credentials, all we want is someone to pose for our new breakfast menu.”
