Friday's Follies and Fun Facts

Friday, November 13, 2009

Quick Update on Trashy from yesterday for the male viewing audience.  Ed, this is special for you, oh, and you too Moog.

Ms. Prejean is in the news again.  Apparently she asked her (ex)boyfriend to lie about her age in the video.  She was in fact 20.  So, as soon as I get details on the release of said video, I will let you all know.  Sickos!
Don't say I never did anything for ya!  See, I spread the love!

So here is Friday Fun Facts.  It's basically just random shit about nothingness.  But, it's real, and well, I figure, you may benefit.  You never know when a conversation is going to go down a rat hole somewhere and you will need to bust out the ol' useless factoid.  Right? Right!

  • For Ed and Moog:  The first pornographic film was created by Thomas Edisons' assistant.
  • For my sweet friend Cameron at Conquer the Monkey:  Sir Issac Newton refused to eat with a spoon!
  • For all my vampiras like me:  Galileo drank a warm glass of blood every night before he went to bed.
  • For LiLu cause she loves gross crap:  Frankincense enemas were commonly used to treat leprosy in ancient times.
  • For Duckalicious:  Much of American Sign Language was invented by a one-armed man.
  • For Ed in honor of your Vasectomy:  During mating season, the testicles of some fruit bats become so swollen that flight is impossible.
  • For my husband:  Vlad "The Impaler" Tepes was afraid of the dark.
  • For LiLu, a true TMI:  Abraham Lincoln was arrested for defecating in public at the age of 17. The charge was later dismissed and his record sealed.
So just to explain the title and so I don't get any comments about how follies are musicals or theatrical whateveryouwanttocallits.  A definition for your word vaults.  Cause you all know I am a bit of a word nerd.

4. Obsolete

There you have it folks.  This post is what 2 minutes you can't get back?  Bwahahaha!  Gawd I amuse  the shit outta myself!

Love you all!  Tune in this weekend for some awards I need to pass along to the most deserved amongst you!

And here's a big wet sloppy kiss for you!  *MWAH!*

Another useless factoid: A factoid is not, in fact, a real droid...

I'm going to a party tonight and so excited about getting some of these facts I can weave into the conversation.

Jessica said...

Passed around some of your fun facts here at work this morning. They're all entertained, now maybe they'll leave me alone! I think you may have saved me today. Thx!

Noelle said...

thank you for the friday fun facts. i can see myself using the term "bat balls" when i'm not feeling quite up to par each month. for example, "i'm sorry, i won't be cooking dinner tonight, i've got bat balls." it just might work.

"See, I spread the love" Actually Prejean spread it....you're simply informing

As for the one-armed bandit - I know a good deal about Laurent Clerc, but I never knew he was one-armed... learn something new everyday!

You cracked yourself up! LOL! I do that all the time. Who else is gonna find me funny but me!

Ed Adams said...

I'm with Moooog.....No link? WTF

Hell yeah, 20's legal!

I would start calling myself Bat Nutts, but Daffy might think I'm copying her.

Alex said...

Galileo was a sick f*ck.

Alicia said...

Conquer The Monkey said...

NO WAY, Newton wouldn't eat w/ spoons either?!?!?!? maybe just maybe there is a genetic connection there, that can be the only explanation :)
thanks you are the bombbizzle!!! LOL!

Carol said...

I'm with Noelle on her comment...See what kind of response I get from Ward & Boy Wonder.

Lisa E said...

Secretia said...

Prejean is a dipshit, and we've heard enough from her.

kys said...

Thanks for the facts. I could amaze people with them if I had any brain cells left.

Ryan Ashley Scott said...
