Why does 40 lashes mean one thing and 40 winks means something totally different?
Don't mind me, I'm just being silly.

It is especially curious conundrum because those winks are done with your eye lashes. lol

It's because the word 40 does not carry an implication of the nature of the things it counts, except in so far as they must be countable.

Well, it's because the 40 only refers to what comes after it. It's almost like asking "why do we drive on parkways but park in driveways?"
