Five Fun Facts for Friday!

Champagne and Cork in Color Clip Art 1. By the law of averages you are more likely to be killed by a flying champagne cork than by a poisonous spider. Good to know, so now I don’t have to be as scared of spiders, but more scared at weddings! :)

2. Butterflies taste with their feet.  (How inconvenientButterly Cartoon Clip Art would it be if every time you wanted to eat something you first had to use your feet to taste it, then your mouth to eat. Inconvenient and unsanitary! Well at least for humans anyway, but since butterflies don’t walk not so unsanitary for them!) :)

Tombstone RIP Clip Art 3. A cockroach will live nine days without it's head, before it starves to death.  (I’ve heard something like this before, but every time I do, it makes my skin crawl!!)Naked Man with Barrel Clip Art

4. "Naked" means to be unprotected. "Nude" means unclothed. (By these definitions, it’s possible to be nude and naked at the same  time, because if you’re unclothed, you’re definitely unprotected!)  :)

Whale Clip Art 5. A whale's penis is called a dork. (LOL! So basically when we say something like, “Don’t be a dork!” what we’re really saying is, “Don’t be a whale’s penis!”)

Two Bonus Facts:Two Headed Snake Clip Art

*When snakes are born with two heads, they fight each other  for food.

Scared smiley face clip art *A fear of long words is, ironically, called "Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia"

The last one about fear of long words, they so did that on purpose and are meanies! Lol.

My fiance came up with a word for the fear of being interrupted: truflaphobia. Derived from Icelandic, hehe! :)
