COF: Conundrums, from Knifley thinker

This is the first item from a Great Thinker in this morning's CM mail. It came, as an astute observer would know it must have, from the Epicenter of Great Thought, Knifley, KY, where the Second Annual Revisit Knifley, Saturday, September 12, 2015, is just about upon on us. (More on that, directly). Now ponder what follows, aforewarned that the questions can split the head of an ordinary thinker like a ripe watermelon:

COF writes:

Most of my kith and kin are aware of my predilection for the offbeat and quirky, such as inverse morphisms and the inanity of my favorite philosopher - Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra.

To that end, I thought maybe the CM congregation could answer some of the puzzlements posed by someone way more offbeat and quirky than I could ever rise to.

Here are some classic musings by George Carlin that have caused much cogitation across the KU Round Table:
  1. Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
  2. Why do they put Braille on the drive-through bank machines?
  3. What was the best thing before sliced bread?
  4. Before they invented drawing boards, what did they go back to?
  5. If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?
And to close, here's one for BJF: Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all?"
