Fun Facts for Friday

Ready for some Friday Fun?

I googled "interesting this week" and found a site with 193 funny and interesting not specific to this week but interesting nonetheless.  And I didn't "fact check" so if one isn't quite right...don't blame me. I won't post them all...but here are a few to entertain you.
