The back of the elbow is called the Olecranal and the front of the elbow is called the Antecubital.

Weenus is a band from south Boston.

WENUS is joke-ronym from Friends for Weekly Estimated Net Usage Statistics.

The etymology of Wenis being from Wisen is a joke since "gullible" is not in the dictionary.

The 57 on Heinz ketchup bottles represents the number of varieties of pickles the company once had.



In 1896 Henry Heinz came up with one of the most recognized slogans in advertising history: "57 Varieties." This catch phrase had nothing to do with the actual number of varieties produced by H. J. Heinz which, by then, totaled over 60 (including plum pudding, strawberry preserve, India relish, olive oil, spaghetti, euchred pickle, currant jelly, chili sauce, peanut butter, and celery soup). Heinz was riding an elevated train in New York when he saw an advertisement in the train car promoting "21 styles" of shoes; struck by the concept, and recognizing that catchiness and resonance were far more important qualities for a company slogan than literal accuracy.

When you die your hair still grows for a couple of months.



When the body dies, some cells may live for a short time. Without nourishment and oxygen (supplied by the blood), the cells die. The appearance of continued nail and hair growth is due to the dehydration of the corpse: the soft tissues shrivel and the hard nails and hair do not.

DEAD SPACE is the only game where you can display drop kicking a baby, and no one will say its wrong



People do say it's wrong. Fortunately, most of those people wouldn't play Dead Space.

Here's an oldie: www.joblo.com/games/kickthebaby.htm

Unfortunately, Nintendo frowned on the Kick the Baby mode in South Park for N64.

No (real) word in the English language rhymes with Silver, Purple, or Orange.



Quicksilver rhymes with silver.

Papal, people, ripple, usurpal (adj. form of Usurp), Constantinople, and a slew of other words rhyme with purple.

Depending on your pronunciation of orange, flange rhymes.



Rhyme: correspondence in sounds of units of composition or utterance often focusing on terminal sounds.

compare perfect rhyme, full rhyme, exact rhyme, and true rhyme

Actually, Hirple and Curple are both Scottish words. Curple is a horse's rear (corruption of crupper).
