Why do kids ask so many questions?



I've read that a four-year-old can ask between 250-400 questions a day. Recent questions from my children:


"Why is Santa fat?"


"What if we dropped an egg and didn't have paper towels?"

"Why don't spiders stick to their webs?"


"Why do people draw sun with lines?"

"Does Jesus know about the Force?"


"How does pressing the crosswalk button get cars to stop?"


"Why does Pez candy say the word Pez?"


If I can't (or choose not to) answer the question, they say "Ha, ha! Got you!"


And then I feel aggravated because my kids taunt me. 


Two new ones:


"Do monkeys in trees travel faster than monkeys on the ground?"


"Why don't the farthest back windows in our van go down?"
