Perplex Yourself

If a cow laughs,
does milk come
out of its nose?
Is there another word
for synonym?
Why isn’t phonetic
spelled the way it sounds?
Who decided to put an ‘s’
in the word ‘lisp?’
What hair color do they put
on the license of a bald man?
If you choke a Smurf,
what color does it turn?
Why are wise man
and wise guy opposites?
Why do you park in a driveway,
but drive in a parkway?
Why does a doctor have a practice?
Shouldn’t they be good at what
they’re doing by now?
Why don’t psychics
predict the winning lottery
numbers and retire?
Why don’t sheep
shrink when it rains?
Why don’t they make the ENTIRE airplane out of
the same material as the indestructible black box?
Why didn’t Noah swat
those two mosquitoes?
If you are an insomniac, dyslexic and agnostic,
do you stay up all night wondering if there is a dog?
Why is it that you believe it when you’re told that there are billions of stars in the universe but if you’re told that a wall has wet paint you have to touch it to be sure?

So why is it called “Milt’s Barbecue for the Perplexed,” anyway?

At Milt’s, we don’t just feed your body. We feed your mind. From the moment you walk in our doors, you’ll feel it. There’s an energy that runs through the air like electricity, inspiring conversation, connection and community.

Which brings us to “perplexed”.

Our inspiration comes from Maimonides, the prominent 12th century Torah scholar. His “Guide for the Perplexed” addresses questions of philosophy and theology that are still relevant today. Throughout his work, Maimonides emphasizes the importance of giving credence to all perspectives. He drew from Jewish, Islamic and ancient Greek philosophers, to explain the philosophy of the Torah.
