#36 The Weird, Unusual and Amusing Meme

The following statements are true. Your job is to explain why you think they are true. Just offer up your usual amusing quips! I'm betting we'll have some hysterical responses. Remember that somewhere somebody in the world needs to know these things and your tax dollars probably paid for the research that went into proving them true.



1. More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed in plane crashes.

2. Donald Duck comics were banned in Finland because he doesn't wear pants.

3. If you keep a Goldfish in the dark room, it will eventually turn white.

4. The shortest war in history was between Zanzibar and England in 1896. Zanzibar surrendered after 38 minutes. Why were they fighting in the first place?

5. Women blink nearly twice as much as men.

6. The ant always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.


7. An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.


8. In England, the Speaker of The House is not allowed to speak.


9. By raising your legs slowly and lying on your back, you cannot sink into quicksand.

10. On average, 12 newborns will be given to the wrong parents daily.

12. The electric chair was invented by a dentist.
