-- The operative word here is "say".

Bill Clinton used to call Cooter,..... "PoonTang".

-- He must be friends with my grandpa.

Someone pd. $14,000.00 for the bra Marilyn Monroe ... wore in "Some Like It Hot"

-- I can think of nothing more practical.

Michael Jackson pd. $10,000.00 for Gary Colemans Jock Strap!

-- This should have been a red flag for someone somewhere.

Some toothpastes contain Anti-Freeze.

-- This surprises me not.

The worlds longest foot was 27 inches..

-- You know what they say about men with big feet? (They wear big shoes.)

Sigmund Freud had a morbid fear of ferns.

-- What this doesn't say was that his mother's name was Fern.

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, was the 1st man to piss his pants on the moon!

-- If only I could aspire to a fraction of his greatness ...

Only 16% of all Americans can tell which President is on the 20 dollar bill.

-- As long as Google is nearby, I can tell you just about anything.

Galen is tired, and is going to bed soon.... Peace!

-- So is Morgetron, but she's an insomniac, so no such peace for her.

Thanks for the fun facts. I hope to visit again.

Take care,
-J

Astonishing! Can't say I'm surprised about Michael Jackson. Or Bill Clinton. Or Elvis! I am surprised at earthworms and toothpaste. I'm throwing out all my lipsticks, never becoming a Senior Citizen, and burning my bras which don't amount to any $14,000 if you count the whole drawer full. And I knew there was a reason I was scared of live chickens.:-)

Brill blog mate. Well done.

Charles said...

Galen,
Teeth in an insect? Heck, give 'em the anti-freeze toothpaste. I take it that they must be pseudo-teeth, not like that of vertebrates.
Hope your's is a good one.

snowelf said...

barman said...

You know I have waited for you to add something to the list like you did on this one. Something about you. Yep, great list. Why would you want to buy someones bra or jock strap. There are people out there with way to much money. They can send it to me if they like...

jillie said...

Ok...the jock strap thing is just a little too weird EVEN for me!! Can you say...WACKO JACKO?? I wonder if he washed it first or just put it on his head right away....LMAO

If I had the money...I would have paid that much for Marilyn's bra. I guess if you had that kind of money to spend...it wouldn't matter.

Always a barrel of information my dear galen...xoxo

lime said...

SignGurl said...

I'd sell you my bra for the low, low price of $10.
