I often laugh about the phrase "Ignorance is Bliss." It may be blissful for the ignorant but it annoys the hell out of the rest of us...

Here's a couple more. When answering, put your answer in a spoiler tag, perhaps?

 

 

Upon four legs I stand, but a single foot I have. What am I?

 


 

I have a face, but cannot see or speak. I make a noise, but it's very meek.

I have hands, to me they're useless. I do not talk but tell you this. What am I?

 


 

I can be fat and I can be slim. I cannot last, it's getting dim.

I can be short and I can be tall. That sets my lifespan, after all. What am I?

 


 

I am everywhere but not the same. I go by many, many countless names.

If it's some trouble you're in, all I have is my shoulder to lend. What am I?
