Random Thursday

Today is the final day of facts on pop culture from Shane Carley's True Facts That Sound Like Bull$#*t! The next chapter will be on sports and likely my least favorite of things. Lol.

Did you know that Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham only has 50 different words in it? Dr. Seuss apparently made a bet with a colleague that he could write a book with just 50 words in it and have it be a success.

Well, we know who won that bet!

Did you know that Tim Allen almost went to prison for life before he became an actor? He apparently was a drug dealer before becoming an actor and avoided prison time by giving up names of other drug dealers.

Is this for real?! How have I never heard this before?! Lol.

Did you know that Steve Buscemi was a firefighter before becoming an actor? Did you also know that after 9/11 he returned to working 12-hour shifts to help rescue people from the rubble?

I did not know that! Always kind of remembered him playing the crazy guy in most movies. That's amazing!!

Did you know that Woody Harrelson's father was an assassin who murdered a federal judge? His father also claimed to have a hand in the assassination of John F. Kennedy--though it's been widely discredited.

Whoa. But then again, I never really paid much attention to celebs' personal lives.

Did you know that in his college days, Samuel L. Jackson was with a group of students when they held the Morehead College Board of Trustees hostage? And among those hostages was Martin Luther King, Sr.

What the what?!!!
