“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Mirthy Facts

The average person is about a quarter of an inch taller at night.
[Another quarter inch doesn't impress most women.]

A sneeze zooms out of your mouth at over 600 m. p. h.
[Along with everything else in your mouth at the time.]

The condom - made originally of linen - was invented in the early 1500s.
[That same year men began asking, "Put that on my WHAT?"]

The first known contraceptive was crocodile dung, used by Egyptians in 2000 B. C.
[Does this explain Crocodile Dung Dee? ]

America's first nudist organization was founded in 1929, by 3 men.
[3 very lonely men.]

98% of American drivers think they drive better than anyone else.
[The other 2% are NY cab drivers who know better.]

When he's feeling amorous, the male sea otter grabs the female's nose with his teeth.
[When the female feel amorous, she grabs something more...]
