Teacher: Did your father write this essay for you, Michael?
Michael: No, ma’am. He started it, but my mom had to write the whole thing over again.
What does the squirting cucumber plant squirt?


Seeds and slimy fluid—as far as 20 feet. The strange plant, native to the Mediterranean region, looks like a normal cucumber, but as it ripens it begins filling up with a slimy juice that builds such intense pressure inside the cucumber that it shoots off its stalk, spewing seeds and fluid in its wake.
Boomhauer (King of the Hill)

Even devoted King of the Hill fans have a hard time understanding Hank Hill’s fast-talking, drawling friend Boomhauer. To voice the character, actor Mike Judge did an impression of an irate caller who left a message about his show Beavis and Butt-Head on his answering machine in the early 1990s. The message went something like this: “I tell you what, man, that dang ol’ Beavis and Butt-Head talkin’ crazy, man, blowin’ up stuff and killin’ frogs with bats, man, and that’s messed up and you should be shamed o’ yerself, man.”
M*A*S*H’s Corporal Klinger wore a size 14 in women’s dresses.

    Wow. Where do you find all this information? Thanks for sharing. I would say I learn so much, but since I don't remember most of what I read,, well I guess I didn't learn so much but maybe I can say I knew it once upon a time?
