Because you don't have one. 4 || What sort of terrible trauma drove Hootie & The Blowfish into country music. 5 || Why minivans have built-in, state-of-the-art movie theaters, but you still can't get one with a privacy screen fully separating you from your numb-nuts kids at the touch of a button. 6 || That, in an unexpected plot twist, Putin is actually a philanthropist/helluva guy who generously paid off all your debts AND bought you a lifetime supply of excellent health care coverage. 7 || How it's possible that Carrot Top has more fame and money than you ever will. (But how, though?) 8 || Why any of us ever tolerated Caillou. Like, even for one single second. 9 || Why texting and driving is illegal, but it's still legal to drive and tweeze your billy-goat chin hairs. 10 || Who, in fact, let the dogs out. 11 || Where you hid that copy of Are You There God? It's Me Margaret you stole in 7th grade. 12 || Why the name of this scandal doesn't end in -gate, like a proper scandal should. WHY ISN'T CALLED PANAMA PAPERS-GATE? WHY?! Pssst.
