Snapple Facts and more oddities

Here it is, my second installment of Snapple facts.  If you missed the first one, go here.

And if you missed ... *************** (**timer went off**)

Sorry, minor delay as I had to run and play little game of Push & Pull with my washer, true story.

As I was saying... if you missed the first installment, you can read it here.

That's right!  I received another box of 'stuff' not too long ago.  I didn't take a picture this time but I probably will (look for it later tonight) but I will tell you the contents:

  • 6 hockey stick pens (could come in handy, and they actually work... BONUS :))
  • 4 Snapple lids (of which you will see the content momentarily)
  • 8 shower caps from hotels (does anyone really use those?  I never have.)
  • 10 paper coasters (9 of them are from the Tropicana, 1 from Iggy's Sports Grill)
  • outdated magazines (Utah Family and Wasatch Woman-- that way I can know what events happened that I've already missed out on) 
  • 1 hair pin that was found in a parking lot
  • 2 decks of cards (we love games and cards so those come in handy)
  • 3 giant T-shirts for the girls to wear as night-gowns. 
PAUSE-- Timer went off again... time to go babysit the washer.

  • Well that was fun...  a Chinese Yo-yo.  The kids are having fun with that!
  • And finally, a bunch of papers with last names on them, "so the kids can learn how to read names from all over the world."
Guys, I just don't know what to do.  I take the stuff he gives me and try to be grateful.  I know he means well.  He just doesn't see some of it as garbage I guess.  Some of it really is, literally.  What am I supposed to do with a bunch of papers with last names?  And shower caps?  And usually the pens don't work.  These ones do so they are fine but that's not the norm.  What about the old hair pin?  Who knows what it's been through! 

I just have to laugh.  That's all I can do. 

Anyway, here are your Snapple facts of the day:

  • Mount Whitney, the highest mountain in the continental United States, and Zabriskien Point, the lowest point in the United States, are less than eighty miles apart.
  • A rhinoceros horn is made of compacted hair.
  • Jousting is the official sport of Maryland.  (Does every state have an official sport?)
  • At five feet, the whooping crane is the tallest bird in North America.
And there you have it!  You learn something new every day!  What did you learn today?

I remember your first snapple facts post. This one was just as humorous. Thanks for the laugh. Seriously, a rhino horn is made of hair? Gross.
