Today: Totally Useless Facts and Trivia!!

I'm a little under the weather. To say the least. I have some wierd ailment that my own doctor, aka "the Quack" can't diagnose right now. I do feel better this morning than I did yesterday. On the plus side, I get to wear my jammies all day and be curled up with a book. In honor of wierd and wacky ailments, lets just play a little trivia today! (all question answers will magically appear at the bottom of the post......okay well maybe not magically.....).

*There used to be a commercial about Brylcream, it's motto was?
A) It's a dream B) Tame A cowlick C) A little dab'll do ya

*Complete the following: "I found my thrill"
A) With Thyme and Dill B) On my man Bill C) On Blueberry Hill

*Before Peter Pan was played by Robin Williams, who played Mr. Pan?
A) Errol Flynn B)Mary Martin C)Doris Day

*Who was the first child star to be nominated for an Oscar?
A) Shirley Temple B)Jackie Cooper C) Mickey Rooney D) Judy Garland

Useless Facts:

* Grapes explode when you put them in the microwave (You too can try this at home!)

* Toothpaste has been around since 500 BC, but is wasn't until 1892 that it became availabe in a collapsable tube (what was it in before 1892 I ponder??????)

* Honey NEVER spoils. No need to refridgerate it. It can be stored unopened, indefinately, at room temperature in a dry cupboard.

* The first pizza was made in Naples, Italy (I new I loved Naples).

* 93% of people eat at least one frozen pizza at least once a month

* 1957 introduced the first frozen pizza (immediately thereafter came 'pizza worshipping'!)

And speaking of the revered pizza. I leave you with this fantastic, quick and easy pizza recipe.

1 refridgerated ready made pizza crust
1 lb ground meat (of your choice) browned and drained
1 can Hunt's Manwich SloppySauce (if you're not a man, get any brand you please...)
Grated Mozzarella and rated Sharp Cheddar cheese

Cover ready made crust with sloppy joe sauce. Sprinkle with browned meat. Cover with shredded cheeses to your taste. Bake at 425 degrees until crust is brown and meat/cheese mixture is bubbly. Prince and kiddos alike love this recipe.

I'm not quite sure how this post ended up being about a pizza recipe. Perhaps I should take my medicine and have a little lie down again.

***trivia answers:#1 - C, a little dab'll do ya #2- C, on blueberry hill #3, Mary Martin #4, Shirley Temple

  5. Got every one of them! Lived through every one of them. How did I get this old?

    Best pizza I ever got was in 1960 at Raya del Sol in Naples. USS Tidewater was tied up there fo several months.

  6. Great post, thank you for the quiz and pizza facts. Tooth powder was in "tins" prior to 1892. You can see these from time to time at antique stores and such.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and your nice comments. I

  7. I forgot, (it's early here), I would be happy if you follow my blog, I think I will do the same, if okay.

  8. Too bad frozen pizza tastes like cardboard. I never eat it. Your pizza recipe sounds way, way better! :-) Happy Valentine's Day!

  9. Hi! you might be under the weather, but you still write a great post!! Loved this one. And now you have me singing Dean Martin's "Amore". I love that song!! I even recently listened to it on YouTube. Loved the trivia tidbit about the toothpaste. Oh gal, you do make me laugh. Hey, you are good for what ever ails me, just by making me laugh. So one of us fellow bloggers will have to come up with something to make you laugh too, and maybe that bug you have will go pester someone else for awhile and you will feel better. "Gute Besserung", Get Well soon! ciao, Debby

  10. Hey there- I hope you feel better! that pizza sounds simple and yummy! I will have to give it a whirl!

  11. I got all the Questions correcT!!!

    I'm gonna try the grape with the microwave thing later... When nobody is home =x

    haha Happy Valentine's to you too

  12. I got 3 out of 4 there. I picked Errol Flynn. He's the one I remember and Monty Python.
    The thing about toothpaste. Why have they not invented a decent toothpaste? I hate mint, and it makes me feel sick every time I brush my teeth.
    When I feel ill all I want is people noticing I'm ill, attending my every need and mopping my brow. Needless to say that never happens. Hope you feel better soon.

    Thank you for dropping in on Irish Gumbo. That was a very kind comment, and I glad to have you on the train, as it were.


  26. I'm old enough to know every one of the answers. The fact that you took the time to write the questions makes me wonder if you're hitting the NYQUIL in the daytime.

  27. I was going to write a longer comment but I have to clean out my microwave. I didn't have a grape so tried it with a cantalope

  28. Love this post and will look in again. Thank you for visiting mine and leaving your very kind comment. I feel honoured that you wish to follow my blog, will certainly be following yours. Hope you feel better soon and have a Happy Valentine's Day. A x

    Irish Gumbo - We gonna ride that train together I tell ya!!

    Kareer Woman - you sound like a real cool lady!

    Dana Wizard - not hitting the Nyquil because that's not the kind of sick I am. But....now that you bring it up a shot or two of Nyquil sounds pretty awesome!

    B&B - leave it to you to try this little experiment in a "BIG" way. I'm sure you're still cleaning that microwave. A cantaloupe indeed? Make the doggie help you!!

    Strawberry Jam Anne - you sound as sweet as your name. I'll just bet that you are. Suddenly I am craving toast....????....Thanks for the feel better wishes!!

  30. To answer all the questions correctly one has to be as ancient as i am. Hope you are feeling better.


I'm listening.....and while you're at it PLEASE make me laugh!!
