This is a wonderful item Gerard. You could make a whole site from the concept. BTW there's a typo

Some that are always asked to me:

Are you blind?

Are you going to finish this any time soon?

And my favorite:

"Why can't you be more like your cousin? He gets straight A's in school."

(that was the only thing about him that was straight...)

"If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you jump too?"
"That depends on how safe the bungee rig looks."

Stolen/paraphrased from somewhere, probably Dilbert.

As a teacher for many years, a day did not go by that some student would say, "Mrs. Byrd, can I ask you a question?" My response was automatic: "You just did." And I'd move right along.

But this is one I hate, and it seems to be de riguer these days of know-it-all pundits:

"Having said that..." Then they go on to counter everything they just said. Oh, shut up.
