Why? (Rhetorical questions of silliness.)

A thread for asking (rhetorically) "Why?" - (Things that make no sense in question form.)

No answer needed as it's rhetorical!

Add your own - making your question as entertaining as possible.

In soccer, the coach is a "coach"..
In hockey, the coach is a "coach"..
In football, the coach is a "coach"..
In volleyball, the coach is a "coach"..
In swimming, the coach is a "coach"..
In basketball, the coach is a "coach"..
But in Baseball, the coach is a "Manager"
Why?

Good thought.. or put another way...

Book XYZ in paperback = $3.99
Book ABC in paperback = $4.50
Book DEF in paperback = $7.99
Any of the above three in eBook form: $14.99
Why?

The driver of a train is called an "engineer"..
The driver of a ship is called a "helmsman"..
The driver of a Shuttle is called an "astronaut"..
The driver of an airplane is called a "pilot"..
The driver of a limo is called a "chauffeur"..
But..
The driver of a race car is called a "race car driver"
Why? (I vote for "elliptical pattern navigator")

Why do birds sing so gay?

Elliptical pattern navigator would only work for a very limited number of motorsports. How about; high velocity, very low altitude, wheeled vehicle pilot?

To quote "Loose Bruce Kerr" in the song "Safe From You": Why do birds flap their wings in fear, every time you are near?

Quoting Rupert Holmes:

Do you pina coladas?
Do you like walks in the rain?
Are you into yoga?
Do you have half a brain?

Why is it called a TV "set" when you only get one?
Why is it that doctors call what they do "practice"?
Why do they make cars go so fast its illegal?
Why is it called a "building" when it is already built?
Why do they call them "apartments" when they are all stuck together?
