Meaningless Question

Description: Asking a question that cannot be answered with any sort of rational meaning.

Examples:

What’s north of the North Pole?

What happened before time?

How many angels can you fit on a head of a pin?

Explanation: There is no north of the North Pole, you can’t use a temporal term such as “before” when referring to outside of time, and angels, whether you think they are real beings or imaginary ones, do not take up space.

Exception: If the angels ate too many doughnuts...
