I guess this one is obvious, considering the number of sharks we have playing in our front yard.

Some FIFA World Cup Knowledge for you.

The Penalty was introduced in 1891.

You remember the Golden Girls, right?

Well, picture it, Sicily, 1942, something happened to Sophia 🙂

Sophia was Dorothy’s mother in the show. The cute little old lady.

Here are the facts:

Dorothy, played by Beatrice “Bea” Arthur (May 13, 1922 – April 25, 2009)

Sophia, played by Estelle Getty (July 25, 1923 – July 22, 2008)

Take a look at those dates… “Sophia” was born in 1923 and “Dorothy” was born in 1922!

That’s it.

The chicken (or rooster) on the Kellogg’s Cornflakes box is named “Cornelius”.

Now you can teach your children something new 🙂
