Why is it ?

My gratitude to the 490 hits this blog received in just two weeks. I hope to continue keeping it interesting and informative to all those who check it out. Now, for something completely different.....

See if you can justify the following:
Why does the sun lighten our hair, but darken our skin?
Why do we call items sent by car a 'shipment', and items sent by ship 'cargo'?
Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?
Why is a boxing ring square?
Why is it considered necessary to nail down the lid of a coffin?
Why do we park on a driveway and drive on a parkway?
Why is it that rain drops but snow falls?
Why is it that when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why is the third hand on the watch called a second hand?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
Why isn't there a special name for the tops of your feet?
Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?
You know that little indestructible black box that is used on planes? Why can't they make the whole plane out of the same substance?
Why does your nose run and your feet smell?
Why do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters?
Why do people order double cheeseburgers, a large fry, and a diet coke?
Why do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight?
Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and leave useless junk in the garage?
