Thoughtful Thursday: Join the confused philosopher deep in thought

I’ve come across several columns/posts offering something called “ponderisms” recently, questions to make you think and chuckle, well. mostly chuckle. They remind me of questions the Confused Philosopher used to ponder on the late, lamented Royal Canadian Air Farce comedy show, done so well by the irrepressible Don Ferguson. Does anyone else remember these skits?

I thought I’d share some of the ponderisms circulating on the web, but do it in confused philosopher style. If these don’t give your Thursday something to think about, it’s hard to imagine what would! ๐Ÿ™‚













Philosophers are always eager to tackle the tough questions, Thoughtful Thursday or any other day of the week! ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOL these made me laugh Jane. Then again I often laugh at Philosophy!
    I particularly liked the clock/time one and the weather being immune to criticism ๐Ÿ˜€

    Time to get rid of clocks me thinks.
    See what I did there? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love these Jane. My takeaways were the question about wheels on luggage (not one I’d *ever* given thought to) and the one about the weather’s imperviousness to criticism which I feel we could all learn something from ๐Ÿ˜€

      Yes, I especially like the suitcase one, having spent several years lugging suitcases filled with books across the pedestrian bridges in rail stations from one track to another before the epiphany of wheels struck!


  8. There’s nothing like a good laugh to start the day and I’ve only just caught your post – a day late as it’s now Friday – but what a good few chuckles and smiles it’s given me. Dead bugs in enclosed light fittings? That one has always puzzled me too!!

    They donโ€™t seem all that confused. They are just being curious philosophers.
