But being a Mongolian standup was no picnic. Temujin was a vicious bawdy-shamer

Orville and Wilbur Wright originally invented the toaster as an early attempt to send things flying through the air.  After burning the first aircraft, they decided to recalibrate the device and use it as a means to toast slices of bread.

One wonders how well Tolstoy's classic novel would have been received had it been published under its original title: "War, What Is It Good For?"

On the East Coast, Best Foods brand mayo is sold as Hellman's. Same jar, same color scheme and design to the label, even the same jingle in commercials. Except on the East Coast, the jingle makes no sense. "Bring out your Best Foods, and bring out your best." Makes sense. "Bring out your Hellman's, and bring out your best"? Spring for a new jingle, you cheap mayo purveyoys.

Anne Boleyn, and her daughter Elizabeth I were both struck by lightening. They started covering their faces with powder to hide their freckles. That's why they look like ghosts in every painting throughout history.

When he was still just a lawyer in Illinois, Abraham Lincoln formed the first Pee Club outside the original 13 colonies in a log cabin. 

He did this to be a cover for his vampire hunting activities.

For example, the Beatles song, “Norwegian Wood”, is about the Byzantine Emperor Justinian I’s wife Theodora.

 

 

Theodora’s father was a bear trainer. She was also a prostitute before she met Justy.

Wait.  You mean you didn't misspell "lightning" on purpose?

Well, prostitute may not be entirely accurate.  She worked in the “entertainment “ industry.

- I wonder if you know that the harp is a predecessor of the modern day guitar. Early minstrels were much larger people. In fact, they had hands the size of small dogs.

No Maserati did 185 until 2004 or so despite what Joe Walsh may have implied.

And I'm sure that at some point of his life Sammy Hagar drove 55 mph.

At Grant’s second inaugural ball, hundreds of cages with canaries were hung in the rafters to merrily sing in Grant’s inauguration. However, there was no heat in the building and the temperature dropped to single digits. Many dancers made a quick exit when dead, frozen canaries began raining down on their heads.
