here`s one for you...

Why do Japanese school girls spend so much of thier free time shopping for clothes when all they wear is their damn school uniform all. the. time.

It actually means, "Who watches the watchers?", but I'll bite
Why do I still own the condoms I got from health services, like, six months ago? (This is half rhetorical question, half Zen koan)

Maybe it's because Japanese schoolgirls imagine that the oppressive weight of their patriarchal culture will crumble in on itself, destroying the hegemonic pathological power hierarchy from within, creating a panacaeic landscape of equality and freedom, and then they could wear whatever they wanted.

Maybe because they failed to realize that they're in JAPAN, and not California.

Maybe because they won't admit that their schoolgirl outfits are very much some of the hottest things on the face of the earth, and they want to forget that for just a little while.

What is the sound of one hand clapping?

Who cooks for the cooks?
Who barbs the barbers?
Who shits a cold purple twinkie for the cold purple twinkie-shitters?

You win. I almost choked on some Mountain Dew when I read yours.

"Who mops up after janitors?"
"More janitors."
"And who mops up after them?"
"Oh, it's janitors all the way down."

See? There is an application of the Earth-on-Turtle theory!

I sense a Pratchettism...

Who jumps off the cliffs of Dover in a gigantic toilet bowl, pretending that it's a hang glider? There's the ineffable for you.
