Humour With Animal Related Imponderables

An article on Animal related imponderables.

Who hasn’t at some time in their lives wondered about something that they couldn’t find an answer for? As a young child I’m told that my favourite saying was “why is that”? And almost every day since then I have at some point pondered over a difficult to fathom question. Now I know that some people have an absolute yearning to eradicate all life’s great mysteries. But I have long given up on the youthful expectation that I will one day know everything there is to know. I now really don’t want to achieve this impossible goal. I think that the fact that I don’t everything is exciting - ambiguities are a part of life, lets embrace them. They keeps me searching for those questions and answers. Let’s face it – if we knew everything there was to know – life would be so monotonous, and dare I say it - dull. After all, as long as you remain curious, you will never be bored.

So, rather than worry about finding reasons for everything that exists, I sometimes just like to go with the flow and let life’s little conundrum’s wash over me. If the act of pondering over something can bring a little laughter, then all the better. Give it a try – it might just brighten your day.

These animal related imponderables may just add a little amusement to your day.

What is Imponderable in the world is greater than what we can handle.

        They do set you wondering. Pondering over them can become very consuming if you let them.
