Totally Random & Useless Facts

Posted by 2 on

Before we say goodbye to 2011, I wanted to share some totally useless, random but nonetheless funny facts with you:
  • One in three dog owners say they have talked to their pets on the phone. I don’t have any trouble believing this because my family regularly asks to say “hi” to the dogs.
  • In 1984, a Canadian farmer began renting ad space on his cows. These ads were probably extremely effective. Wouldn’t you notice an ad printed on a cow if it walked by your house?
  • Worms reportedly taste like bacon. Delicious as bacon is, I’m not willing to try worms.
  • The inventor of Vaseline ate a spoonful of the stuff every morning! He must have been on to something good because he lived to be 96 years old. Perhaps Canada’s Food Guide should list Vaseline as a food group.
  • The chances of dying on the way to get your lottery tickets are greater than your chances of winning. No wonder my husband has never won the lottery despite buying a ticket every week for as long as I can remember.
  • McDonald's is the world's largest distributor of toys! Perhaps they should quit the food industry and start producing toys full time?
  • President George W. Bush was once a cheerleader! He should have stuck to cheerleading. The US economy would probably be in better shape today if he had.
  • There is a town in Pennsylvania named Intercourse. I wonder if this town has a higher birth rate than the rest of the country?
  • The U.S. Government spent $277,000 on pickle research in 1993. I’m speechless!
Do you have any funny antidotes to add to the above? Please share! Wishing you and your family the very best for 2012!
