Lost question

Have you ever had a question that was driving you crazy and you couldn't wait to get here on the forum to ask for help?

Then...when you got here you forgot what it was...?

I did. Just now.

Can you remember what it was that was bothering me so?

No, it had nothing to do with cheese, and I am getting old and almost deaf so I can't hear the voices in your head. I have a hard time hearing the ones in mine.

The only thing I know for sure is that it didn't have to do with real bicycles, which is why I came to FOO...

How do they get the deer to cross at that yellow road sign?

Have you ever seen a chicken crossing sign? Seems like there is a lot of chickens crossing the roads these days, but there are no warning signs.

Well, maybe first they have to understand why, oh why, do the chickens cross the road, and then, put up the signs

Your question was, "what's jyossarian's address so I can send him all my money?"

Chickens don't do $3000 worth of damage to your car when you hit 'em.

You're quite fortunate that I am psychic and know the answer to the question you were going to ask.

A. It depends.

Anyone here ever used to listen to Mark & Lard on BBC Radio 1?
They used to have a slot called "answers to listeners questions" where they would, funnily enough, answer listeners questions that had been sent in. They didn't read out the questions though, just gave the answers. Comedic genius...

That answering question bit sounds like what Carnac used to do on the old Johnny Carson show.

But the real question was....

Damn! I forgot it again.

But youse guys and gals have been a real help.
