A question or two

When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?

Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

Why is the third hand on a watch called the second hand?

Why do "slow down" and "slow up" mean the same thing?

Why do "fat chance" and "slim chance" mean the same thing?

Why do we sing "take me out to the ball game" when we are already there?

Why is it called "after dark" when it really is "after light"?
