xx Tues. joke 10/24 What's Up?
« Thread started on: Oct 24th, 2006, 2:24pm »

There is a two letter word that perhaps has more meaning than any other two letter word -it is "UP". It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we waken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election. Why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, we open Up the curtains to brighten UP a room. We polish UP the silver, we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When it doesn't rain for a while, things dry UP.

At other times the little word has real meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing but to be dressed UP is special.

It gets more confusing. A drain must be opened Up because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night. We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP.

To be knowledgeable of the proper uses of UP, look UP the word in the dictionary. In a desk size dictionary, UP takes UP almosty 1/4 of the page and definitions for UP add UP to about thirty. If you are UP to it, you might try coming UP with a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP you may wind UP with a hundred or more.

I could go on and on, but my time is UP so I'll wrap this UP and for now I'll shut UP.
