Still drinking, still knowing…

 

Still have to share my ridiculously useless knowledge.

Did you know….

 

1.   The little dot over a lower case  is called a tittle.

 

(There won’t be any memes to accompany that precious nugget of information.

Google image searching for the word “tittle” led me in some very disturbing directions.)

 

2.   An octopus will eat it’s own arms if it gets hungry enough.

But Hell….

I think we’ve all been tempted to do that at one time or another, no?

3.  In 1900 the third leading cause of death was diarrhea.

Aren’t you glad you started reading this blog?

4.  Winnie the Pooh was based on a real life female bear named Winnie who lived in the London Zoo.

5.  The first known contraceptive was crocodile dung, used by the Egyptians in 2000 BCE.

I don’t know about you, but crocodile dung would definitely be enough to kill the mood for me.

 

6.  Sigmund Freud had a morbid fear of ferns.

Really?

Orchids I could understand. They’re fussy, creepy, high maintenance flowers that look like they want to bite off your finger.

But ferns?

They’re delightful..

7.   Buzz Aldrin’s mother’s maiden name was Moon.

How’s that for serendipity?

8.  If you live in Michigan, it is illegal to put a skunk in your boss’s desk.

Sorry Detroiters…

I’m sure that’s very disappointing news.

Monty Python and Spam….

 

Did you know the reason we call annoying and repetitive messages sent online  ‘Spam’  is due to the 1970 Monty Python sketch that poked fun at the infamous mystery meat?

And while I can’t abide that gelatinous pink brick either…

My WordPress Spam never fails to disappoint.

Take Will for example –

And then there’s Katie who read my blog about Ding Dongs and said –

This post actually made my day. You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

Clearly the poor woman had been searching high and low for junk food enlightenment . So glad I was able to help…

Thank you Kevin. I shall continue to provide the superior quality posts you’ve come to know and love.

Roger asks –

Where can i give apart my used handicap scooter?

I’m not sure why he thought I would know, as I’m hoping it will be many years before I need one.

And finally, the Pretty Guinea Pig made another appearance with –

Can You Snort  500mg cialis 

To which I reply…

No more Cialis for you Randy!

 

It’s that time again…

Let’s begin.

1.  John Quincy Adams went skinny dipping in the Potomac on his 79th birthday.

If this mental image has to be stuck in my head?

I want it to be stuck in yours as well.

 

2.  After eating, the common housefly regurgitates it’s food and eats it again.

Because sometimes, pizza is just that good.

3.  Charlie Brown’s father is a barber.

Admit it, you never knew that.

You’re welcome.

4.  A barnacle has the largest penis of any other animal in relation to it’s size.

Oddly enough, this is a question that’s rarely asked in trivia games.

And Lord knows, I’ve been waiting to dazzle crowds with my barnacle member dimension knowledge for years.

5.   There’s a town in Texas called Ding Dong.

Truly, there is.

It’s north of Austin.

 

DingDongTX

 

And I have a question for Texas bloggers…

WTH?

 

maxresdefault

 

I’m all for being proud of your home town, but….

Damn.

 

 

 

I drink and I know things.

 

I do.

And I have the shirt to prove it.

People often say I’m a font of useless knowledge…

(Okay it’s just my husband who says that, and it’s usually to keep me from talking during  John Wayne movies)  But I do rock at Trivial Pursuit and no one will play with me anymore. So that means I’m going to have to share the ridiculous tidbits that fill my head my fun facts here.

With you.

On a regular basis.

Shall we begin?

 

 

That’s the spirit.

#1.  The first toilet ever seen on television was on Leave It To Beaver.

Why do I know this?

I don’t know…  I just do.

Another?

#2.  Dr. Seuss pronounced his name so it rhymed with rejoice.

Dr. Soice? Say it isn’t so!

But it is.

You’re welcome.

#3.  A leech has 32 brains.

32 brains?

That seems like serious overkill, seeing that most government officials can’t find their first.

#4.  The world’s widest road is the Monumental Axis in Brazil where 160 cars can drive side by side.

Yeah.

And you know that guy in the far left lane is still going to try and take that right hand exit 100 feet before the ramp.

#5.  Three Mile Island is only 2.5 miles long.

Clearly a man named it, as they all measure 6 inches incorrectly.

I think this goes without saying.
