A Puzzle

The narrator -- in the Chevron ad on PBS TV --, the narrator (sonorously) intones, "Where are the answers?"

I think, "Where are the questions?"

Then I think, "In the very act of asking for answers, the narrator asks a question."

So, dear Reader, do I have any reason to complain?

Is the narrator's answer a question? Is it both a question and an answer? Is it both a question and a question?

Or does the narrator's answer (question?) generate a question?

And why am I wasting my time with such questions?
