They nicknamed it the very “highest court in all the land”.
Harvard/'/s easier to join than Wallmart, yesiree..
Harvard/'/s acceptance rate is 2.6%, Wallmarts is 4.3.

The technical word for fear of long words will give you catatonia:
It’s hippopotomonstrosaquippedaliophobia .
Brittan’s Secret Service hacked Al-Queda’s website secretly
and replaced the bomb instructions with a cupcake recipe.

Russian Vlademir Nabokov wrote “Lolita” in his prime.
He also invented emoticons in 1969.
A hurricane can release more energy in just three minutes time,
Than all of our planet’s nuclear weapons (yes, combined)

The largest Indian Reservation is in New Mexico
It covers 10 million acres (1500 square miles, or so)
North Carolina’s the place to go to get your favorite beer.
369 types of beer are brewed right here!



Alaska invented Ranch dressing, and by circumstance;
served it at a place named Hidden Valley Ranch.
The longest golf cart ever made came from Georgia, friends.
Thirty-one feet long at Mike’s Golf Carts, end to end.

A chef’s hat has to have exactly 100 pleats.
It represents the ways you can prepare an egg to eat.
Stop signs were colored yellow until 1954.
They found red paint that wouldn’t fade like it did before.

Louboutin shoes were inspired by Andy Warhol’s art.
He drew a sketch called “Flowers” and that was the start.
While sleeping, sea otters hold hands with each other.
It keeps them from drifting away from one another.

In 1902 Dorothy didn’t have a dog named Toto as now.
She had a pet named Imogene, and it was a cow.
The Outer Space Treaty couldn’t come too soon.
It prohibits any country from ownership of the moon.

Forest Mars, the guy who invented M & Ms
Was allergic to peanuts; and so he couldn’t eat them.
The dot over the letter I is very little.
But it has a name. It’s called a Tittle.

“Where’s George” is a site that will tell you where
your dollar bill goes. You can track it there.
Type in the serial number and you’ll see
Every zip code it goes through accurately.

13 colonies on our dollar bill is a big deal.
13 stripes and 13 stars are on the great seal.
13 steps on the pyramid and 13 arrows the eagle wields.

Paper money is not made of paper. It would be subject to moths!
It’s linen and cotton; technically, our money’s made of cloth.
So is our money minted, or is our money loomed?
It really doesn/'/t matter -- I/'/m just glad they do, aren/'/t you?
