if it's on the internet, it must be true

  • Monkeys can't walk backwards.
  • Rutherford B Hayes had a debilitating addiction to (and a phobia of) naugahyde.
  • A large portion of the moon is made of bees.
  • No one is really sure why the largest organ grinder ever built was never used in front of an audience, but conspiracy theorists say it's because it actually ground organs.
  • Shakespeare did exist, but was never seen in the same room as Superman. Coincidence?
  • It's a known fact that no one truly likes country music or mushrooms. They just think they do.
  • Marionettes were once considered as huge a threat to traditional actors as CGI is today.
  • Ants hate fire and Barry Manilow. It has to do with the heat and the key changes, respectively.
  • The word "microwave" comes from the roots "mic" meaning "Mike" and "rowave" meaning "uses this to make leftover spaghetti".
  • Carlester Crumpler's real name was Engelbert Humperdinck.
  • The line was originally, "If I had a hammer, I'd hammer on your kidneys."
  • I will be prepared in time for my final exams.
