    That is true but only Great Danes come from Germany. This was the reason Denmark attacked Germany thus starting the conflict known to a few as WWI.

    Were the balloons launched into the jet stream by Japan during WWII only a test of a new semi-rigid dirigible passenger service to Seattle?

    No, they were a way to encourage Ichiro to play for the Mariners.

    Do you like the rule change that the pitcher no longer has to throw the pitches for an intentional walk.

    No, and the batter should get an extra base if he walks on only four pitches.

    Since the designated hitter works so well, should there also be a designated runner who can run for anyone and a designated thrower who can take a ball caught by an outfielder and throw it into the infield?

    Yes but also a designated spitter is needed too.

    Should all ninjas be required to wear red vests when hunting their human targets?

    Should the study of practicality be called Practicology?

    Yes, and a very practical suggestion.

    Does practice make perfect?

    No but it does build muscle memory and luck.

    Not if you are a neurological surgeon.

    Should a person be rushed to the emergency room if a spelling bee stings them?

    Is it best to pretend you did not google your signs and symptoms?

    Yes, whip it good.

    Should I get a whippet and name it Devo, so when it behaves itself I can say "Whippet good!".

    No. Never name your pet a pun.

    Should I get a PET scan?

    No, scans are noble creatures and shouldn't be kept in captivity.

    Do snakes make good pets?

    Corn snakes make good pets and rattlesnakes make bad pets and piranhacondas make baaaaaad pets so the question is one of which end of the scale you choose.

    Should you potty train your Smilodon?

    So I guess that's a no and no, on no account attempt potty training, that is a job for train professionals.
    Do you remember where you last saw your potty putty?

    If potty putty is the same as Silly Putty, the answer is no. If potty putty is something to fix your toilet, the answer is still no.

    Is toilet paper man's greatest invention?

    No and it's obvious you have never been properly trained to use the Three Seashells..........refer to the movie Demolition Man if you must.

    Did early humans use volcano vents as the first pyro-bidets?

    Yes, leading to the first iteration of what we now call the Darwin Awards. Which means what we have now are the good genes.

    Does that surprise you?

    No; pretty much nothing surprises me any more.

    Should the expression "no one could be that stupid" be removed from English (as there are too many counter-examples)?

    Yes, there was, but he's dead (surprisingly, he wasn't shot, but died of congestive heart failure).

    Do you know what becomes of the broken hearted?

    Yes. They get recycled into fibers used in everything from carpeting to athletic shoes.

    Is it possible to sterilize and re-use wooden tongue depressors?
