Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Weasel.
Weasel who?
Weasel while you work.

Among Kentucky Derby champions, what was unique about Canonero II, the 1971 upset winner?

He was the only foreign-based horse to win the Run for the Roses. He was from Venezuela.

“Good night, and good luck.”

Possibly the most famous sign-off in TV history, this phrase was coined by 1950s CBS News personality Edward R. Murrow. He got his start on radio during World War II, broadcasting from the rooftops of London buildings during the German blitz. Murrow used the line in an earnest attempt to reach out to the audience and provide comfort. He kept the line after the war and when he moved to TV.

60th Birthday Weekend! (Actual day is Sunday!) Celebration time!! emoticon
__________________________
Larry’s car broke down while he was driving through the countryside. He was waiting for a tow truck when he heard a deep voice say, “I bet it’s the carburetor.” He looked out his window, and all he saw was a big brown cow with a white circle around its right eye. Larry was too startled to say anything, so he jumped out of his car and ran down the road. When he came upon a farmer, he told him about the cow. The farmer asked, “Did that cow have a white patch over its eye?”
“Yes,” answered Larry.
“Well, then you were fooled,” laughed the farmer.
“Fooled?” asked Larry.
“Yes,” said the farmer. “Old White Patch doesn’t know anything about cars.”
______________________
What does the menacing-looking deep-sea vampire squid do when startled?

It turns itself “inside out,” defensively curling its web and arms around the rest of its body in what researchers refer to as its pineapple posture.
(I got that one wrong - I was thinking it shot out black inky stuff! emoticon

Tricks of the trade from commercial food stylists

* Brown shoe polish is painted onto steaks and burgers to make them look like they’re perfectly cooked.

* Hair spray prevents lettuce and vegetables from wilting.

* Spray deodorant is how stylists get the look of tiny, frosty ice crystals on the outside of an ice cream container. It also makes delicate fruits—particularly grapes—shine.

GREAT! you got me !
Til the end I thought it
was a TRUE story

FASCINATING
I had to immediately google
vampire squid
According to marinebio.org
it is actually a cross between
squids and octopi, but their
body composition is similar
to that of a jellyfish !

AND they have fins.
When the last pair of fins
reaches maturity, the original
air is then reabsorbed. The new
fins change the vampire squid's
swimming style from jet propulsion
(like a squid) to fin propulsion!

for the info.
emoticon for butting in
on your blog, BUT
I found it SO INTERESTING
and just wanted to share


Have a Wonderful Weekend
and
A Bodacious Birthday !

What did the Queen say to the Ace?

“I’ve heard a great deal about you.”
______________________
In which Shakespearean play does the gift of a chest of tennis balls provoke a declaration of war?

Henry V, in Act I, Scene ii. The gift, sent by the French dauphin to taunt Henry about the follies of his youth, triggers a tirade from Henry, who instructs the French ambassador to tell the dauphin “this mock of his hath turn’d his balls to gun-stones (cannonballs).”
______________________
Lucky Partners (1958)

On this game show, host Carl Cordell read part of the serial number on a dollar bill. Players in the studio—and viewers at home—won prizes if they had a dollar bill with matching numbers. Fatal flaw: Because of the large number of bills in circulation, there were rarely any winners on Lucky Partners.
_____________________
On the ’50s sitcom I Married Joan, sisters Joan Davis and Beverly Willis played mother and daughter.

FIRST INTERRACIAL KISS ON AMERICAN TV:

The Drew Carey Show, which broadcast an episode online and on ABC simultaneously in 1996.

Father: So you want to marry my daughter?
Young man: Yes, sir, I do.
Father: Well, do you make enough money to support a family?
Young man: Yes, sir, I do.
Father: Are you sure? There are six of us.

What names did explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark give to the rivers known today as the Salmon and the Bitterroot?

Lewis named the Bitterroot for Clark; Clark named the Salmon for Lewis. Neither name survived. But one very personal name Clark gave a river did stick: that of the Judith River in Montana, which he named for the woman he hoped to—and did—marry when the historic expedition to the Pacific coast ended.

THIS DAY IN TV

On April 30, 1939, the first small-scale experimental television broadcast—to the few research institutions, companies, and individuals in the US who owned a TV—took place. What was shown? The opening ceremony of the New York World’s Fair. It was the first-ever TV show.
