Sunday Sillies

Some silly facts you really don't need to know:

Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated.
Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite

No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, or purple.

Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur.

John Lennon's first girlfriend was named Thelma Pickles.

The only real person to be a Pez head was Betsy Ross.

The characters Bert and Ernie on Sesame Street were named after Bert the cop and Ernie the taxi driver in Frank Capra's "Its A Wonderful Life."

And there you have it...Sunday Sillies.

Who tested the rubberbands, and....why?
Hope your weekend is going well.

I really like what you did today. Although I have to challenge you on the PEZ thing. Santa got a PEZ head. Are you telling me that isn't a real person?


Pickled Olives said...

Lizza said...

Awwww, that puppy pic is so cute.

Ernie & Bert are two of my favorite muppets, but I didn't know they were named after characters in a movie. Thanks for the info! :-)

Have a great week, Odat.

I remember the first time I noticed that the cop & taxi driver had the same names as the muppets. I watch "It's a WOnderful Life" every Christmas.

I had no idea that nothing rhymed with those words. Of course I'm tryiing to come up with some. Hmmmm.

I want to be a Pez Head. Or a Bobble Head. I'm not fussy. I'll take my 15 minutes any way I can get it.
