Facts I didn’t need to Find Out


I found out the USDA has approved the use of the term “wyngz” for wing-looking chicken products that contain no wing meat. When you rush out to buy them this weekend, let me help you zero in:

I found out that herring communicate with each other by passing gas. Uhhh, Okay. My brother and I did that in fourth grade.

I found out there is a third Apple Founder. His name is Ronald Wayne. He owned 10% of the company. But, he was a little impatient and sold his stock in 1976 for $800.  Wished I’d bought it. Hmmm, what’s 10% of $600 billion?

You remember Sara Lee?

They had one of the weirdest advertising slogans of all time…”Everybody doesn’t like something, but nobody doesn’t like Sara Lee.” Well, I found out that Sara Lee introduced the Wonder Bra to the USA in 1994.  No comment.

I found out that our grade school kids are darn smart. I was shocked the other day when I heard a second grader and a first grader both sing Mozart’s “Ah, Vous-dirai-je, Maman.”  And in Bakersfield, no less. The weird thing was they both sang it with different words, but sang it correctly. The first-grader started his song – A-B-C-D-E-F-G…and the second grader started her song with – Twinkle, Twinkle, little star…

I’ll give you time to think about that.

OK…have a great Labor Day Weekend.  And no LABOR!

    Who knew farts were such a universal language?

    At least breast meat is, well, meat. Could be worse…

    A double negative in an ad slogan? Who approved that?

    And, since you might appreciate it, here is the best use of SARA LEE in a joke I heard this week. A colleague of mine posted a story that involved marijuana brownies. His caption:

    “And, in related news, AMC developing tv series about a SARA LEE gone wrong called “BAKING BAD.”
