Fun Nonsense

Contributed by softerware on Saturday, 13th June 2020 @ 09:08:59 PM in AEST
Topic: MiscPoems

For all you buffs of nonsense stuff and unessential facts,
who can’t recall who’s who at all, or this year’s football stats..
here’s some fluff to help you bluff, in case you should be asked.

Storms were all anonymous, they had no pedigree.
We didn’t name our hurricanes til 1953.
Women first and then men’s names, alphabetically.

Six years of every lifetime we’ll all be sleeping tight.
And only 1 in 8 of us can dream in black and white.
We average four to six dreams, but they’re erased you see.
We snore and dream, but it would seem not simultaneously.

100 billion galaxies make up our universe.
It’s hard to say that life exists exclusively on earth.
Michael Jackson’s moon walked to our favorite tunes.
but only 12 folks actually have walked across the moon.
Alan Shepard hit a golf ball up there just for fun.
No ones done it since he did in 1971.

We used to think that planet Mars was covered with red dust.
In truth, it’s iron oxide, a thick blanket of rust.
Rust’s a living organism, not decayed debris.
It lives upon its’ food source, metal, naturally.

When it came to using bar codes Wrigley’s won the race.
They were first to use them and now they’re everyplace!
Toothpaste didn’t come in tubes, but jars, just ask Colgate!
It also came in powdered form, we mixed it to a paste.

McDonald’s happy meals make amazing money sense.
Those sales add up to profits that exceed 40 percent!
And while we’re talking happy meals, they are, girls and boys,
the #1 distributer worldwide of children’s toys.

Coffee beans are tasteless no matter when they’re picked.
Their flavor comes from roasting, and that’s the truth of it.
Coffee drinkers (surveys show), have sex more frequently
than those we know who’d rather have a nice hot cup of tea.

You and I drive faster when other cars are near.
But we don’t use our fuel just to get from here to there.
It takes a ˝ a tank of it to overcome wind shear.

The Eiffel tower’s held together by 2 million rivets.
The locals think its ugly, but the tourists love to visit.
The Panama Canal is an engineering feat, but
2500 workers died before it was complete.

Cellphones in Malaysia save courthouses a step.
It’s legal to divorce your spouse by sending them a text!
What are the best known Western names in China’s jurisdiction?
Jesus Christ, Elvis Presley, and Richard Milhous Nixon.

Da Vinci never signed the Mona Lisa, probably,
because it wasn’t finished when he died apparently.
Composer Mozart never went to school. Kids think that’s neat.
And Marilyn Monroe’s feet sported six toes on each.
(Not many who saw Marilyn were checking out her feet).

In 1938 Time Magazine (oh dear!),
published Adolph Hitler as its’ Man of the Year!
Google has owned YouTube since 2006.
It was a good investment for just a billion six.
To honor the environment, they rent 200 goats
to eat the weeds and grasses (their mowers run on oats!).

Facebook adds 8 members - every second, every day.
But surveys found that 10 percent have long since passed away.
If you lose your wallet, police records let us know;
more people will return one if a baby picture shows.
Lack of sleep brings sugar cravings and a cranky temper.
(Most serial killers are Scorpios, born in mid-November)!

Per day a woman uses about 20,000 words.
While men speak 7000 – (no wonder they’re not heard)!
Women speak of details – men do that much less.
Could be why we say that women are the “speaker sex”.

You can’t see color in the dark. Takes light to see those hues.
The NBC Peacock advertised their color shows.
And since we gather info from everywhere to use,
North, East, West, and South – we simply call the NEWS.

It only takes 4 seconds of quiet before we find
the silence getting awkward, and while we’re talking time,
let’s end this poem and head on home...You’ve been just sublime!
Next time I’ll make this shorter, you can rest assured.
But don’t forget, I haven’t yet used 20,000 words!

Wow!!! Interesting, informative, intricately woven together, altogether wonderful x must have taken alot of knowledge and research xx loved it but the McDonald/'/s bit made me think about recent traumatic events in my life at the moment, but I/'/m being as strong as I can right now and I feel stronger than I/'/ve felt in a long long time so I must remain positive and optimistic for how things turn out,, xx
Again loved this very clever poem, you make it seem so easy xx

Fun facts, fabulously formatted!

Cars do speed up when I start chasing them!

and I would like to agree with the fornication fun fact for coffee drinkers, but checking frequent beverage choice with partners is usually only confirmed after the event.

Gotta catch you out on the news falsehood, though...

Nouveau, the French word for new, modifies a plural (feminine) noun, it becomes nouvelles, which is also the French word for news.
