Unanswered questions...

This question was not answered in the movie, "Stand By Me"...OK, so Mickie IS a mouse, Donald IS a duck, Pluto IS a dog...WTF is Goofy??

...and we never did determine what Gonzo on the Muppet show is.

Inquiring minds want to know.

If the police arrest a mime, do they tell him he has the right to remain
silent?
Would a fly without wings be called a walk?

Why do they lock gas station bathrooms? Are they afraid someone will
clean them?

Contrast all this stuff to Goofy, who, as your illustration shows, also participates in fishing, etc., and even drives a car from time to time.

So what gives? How come one dog acts so human, and the other dog just acts like a dog? Answer: one of them's not a dog.

Personally, I subscribe to the Robin Williams theory that Goofy is every man in the world while having an orgasm.

We should bump this thread, seeing as there are literally thousands of goofy threads already.

If someone owns a piece of land, do they own it all the way to the center of the earth?

Why did Sally sell seashells on the seashore when you can just pick them up anyway?

Why are both of Spongebob's parents round like sea sponges while he is square like a kitchen sponge?

If a doctor suddenly died while doing surgery, would the other doctors work on the doctor or the patient?

Mickey, Minnie et. al wear clothes, display human behavior, yet you do not dispute that they are mice.

According to Blackstone, who pretty much wrote all the original English law in this area and whose ideas were then transferred to the colonies, yes. The concept is known as the "Blackstonian wedge." Incidentally, the ownership would also extend skyward from the ground. (There was no air travel in Blackstone's time, so he never really saw the problems that could arise from this.)

True, but there's no "other" mouse that doesn't do these things. As I said before, in defining Goofy, one must deal with the Pluto conundrum. No such problems arise with Mickey and Minnie.

I never knew blackstone, but i agree with him. Anything that flies over my yard is fair game.

I hate to take a humorous thread and get serious but when you own land there's a good chance that someone else owns the mineral rights under that land. They can dig, drill or otherwise get to the resources as long as they don't disturb the surface land owned by you.
