Say, what?

A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

Friday, May 11, 2007

STRANGE BUT TRUE

Here are a few facts to ponder from blogger Tom of Brick.


#1: On the average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily. (I always knew my sister was different).


#2: Because metal was scarce, the Oscars given out during World War II were made of wood (Better than plastic).


#3: By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you can't sink in quicksand. (Good to know if you ever visit Morecambe Bay, England, which is notorious for its quicksands - and you thought they were in the coastal marshes of South America).


#4: Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated. (The better to snap you with, my dear).


#5: The average 4-year-old child asks more than 400 questions a day (mostly, "Why?").


#6: The only domestic animal not mentioned in the Bible is the cat. (I slipped that one in there because I had this cat picture).




And finally, my absolute favorite, which should be no surprise to those of you who know me ...


#7: Dentists recommend that your toothbrush be kept at least six feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush (and don't breathe).

Have a great weekend and Mother's Day!
