With all the high-grade cerebration displayed by Toby, Zola, YD and other bloggers, ben and the beadle have decided to institute their own "Introduction to the Burrow School of Philosophy" in the Snug. A foaming tankard will be awarded to the candidate offering the most enlightening observations upon the following:

Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a race car not called a racist?

Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

"I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language.
Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

Ever wonder about people who spend £2 on those little bottles of Evian water? Try spelling Evian backwards.

Isn't making a smoking section in a restaurant like making a peeing section in a swimming pool?

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhoea. Does that mean that one enjoys it?

WARNING: the beadle has orders to deflate candidates whose entries are too clever by half.
