A dVerse Did You Know At My Show!

Today for dVerse the cat gives you a fact or two. Or maybe a few you knew. Did you know any of the ones below? It is okay if you get zero though.

200 million skittles are made every day.
Who the heck counted that many, I say.
Every time you give a stamp a lick,
You are consuming 1/10 of a calorie some slick.

Professional cyclists pee while still going.
That is a contradicting showing.
Over 1000 birds die each year,
By smashing into windows I fear.

The whip was the first invention to break the sound barrier.
And the foreplay just got hairier.
But in Spain that is okay,
They have two dead dinos having sex on display.

You can't talk while inhaling through your nose.
Did you try it and strike a pose?
The world's old piece of gum,
Is 9000 years old, chum.

Your ribs move 5 million times a year.
Boy, they better not get out of gear.
Slugs have 4 noses.
All the better to smell the roses.

Owls are the only birds who can see blue.
I wonder how they found that clue.
Nolan Ryan was so great.
His jock strap fetched $25,000, mate.

Dr. Seuss's estate earns 5 million a year.
Damn, share some with my rhyming rear.
The world's largest book weighs 133 pounds.
I bet that just astounds.

A ten year old mattress weighs double what it did at the start.
Maybe because some take hump day to heart?
Each year more people are killed by teddy bears than grizzly bears.
I guess stuffed bears provide many scares.

One out of five people live off of $1 a day.
Damn, I'd be dead at my bay.
Chicken is one of the only things man eats,
Before it is born and after it is dead for treats.

Toto was paid $125 a week.
That pup can play some nice hide and seek.
And pigs can never look up into the sky,
I guess that is why humans want them to fly.

There you are, some fun facts at my bar. Did you know each one that the cat spun? You had to know at least two, as I used them before at my zoo. Have to keep you on your toes class with my ever so fact filled little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  5. 200 Million skittles a day?
    That makes me wanna say YAY!
    Didn't know about the calories in licking a stamp
    Guess I need to burn them off by running up a ramp
    Teddy bears a source of death? Who knew?
    They need to hold that stuffing in with superglue
    Maybe someday you will surpass Dr. Seuss' estate
    And use that $ to move to Bora Bora, wouldn't that be great?

    1. Yeah, must choke on the eyeballs
      Or something like that at halls
      That would be grand
      To surpass him across the land
      Bora Bora though
      Hmmm maybe just a visiting I would go

  6. Owls are the only birds who can see blue.
    I wonder how they found that clue.

    I don't know but blue is my favorite hue
    but, I am sure this you already knew

    flying the night skies so much to view
    under starlight, so many things to pursue

    chasing dreams, believing they will come true
    I believe in the impossible, tell me do you???

    Have a good day at your bay

    1. Yeah who knows how they found that
      Sure beats the cat
      And that I knew

      Impossible can be done
      Just have to find a way under your sun

  7. The world's largest book weighs 133 pounds
    Then quite a bother to have it carried around
    It's obvious the e-book version
    Should make an impression
    Knowledge seemingly well kept and bound

    1. Yeah a big reason ebooks seem best
      No 133 pounds book to hold to the chest

  8. Yes, I have heard that about professional cyclists. If they are in a triathlon or something they don't want to stop for anything! Makes sense to me....but EWWWWW!

    1. It does make sense indeed
      Can't stop their high speed

  9. I think the gum may be a bit stale
    and it's color a little too pale
    for me to even chew
    don't think it'll even be blue
    I don't think it will even snap and pop
    for me that gum is just a flop

    1. Just flaps your gums instead
      And cause all dread

  12. Cycling and peeing? That's so gross. I mean when astronauts do it for a good cause, so it's cool. And you're right. I can't breathe through my nose and keep my mouth open, unless I place my tongue over the roof of my mouth. (Yes, I might have taken the pose a step too far!)

  13. I'd like to see the world's biggest book.

  15. Learned lots of new things today
    I don't think I knew any of these facts before
    The one that was the most interesting was
    you could consume calories by licking a stamp, is that true or a lure?

    betty

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmmm well you do lick something off of it
      So it can stick a bit
      So could be true
      As calories come due
