I’ve always wondered why spaghetti comes in such long strands. It’s hard to keep it on your fork, or even in your hands.

I’ve always wondered why spaghetti is served on a dinner plate. Why not eat it in a sandwich or a thick spaghetti shake?

I’ve always wondered why spaghetti is spelled such a funny way. Why don’t they take the ‘h’ out, or maybe move the ‘a’?

I’ve always wondered why spaghetti has tomato sauce plopped on top. Why not grape jelly or chocolate cream, or for that matter, red soda pop.

I’ve always wondered why spaghetti is my number one entree. Must be because spaghetti is just so much fun to say.
