Not to be a spoilsport, but you can never trust these things. You always get this tidbits off the internet, and people just assume they are true.

A whale penis is called a “dork.” Oh really? By who?

A goldfish only has a 2 second memory. And how precisely did they test that, hmm? With flash cards?

Both statements are completely false, but as soon as someone prefaces it with “did you know?” people will believe anything. I can just say “Did you know that the Galapagos Tortoise is the only Amphibian with pubic hair?”

Bam. Legend created.

“Did you know, the average human will ingest 20 lbs of hair in their lifetime?”

“Did you know, Condoms were made of Asbestos until the early 20th century?”

See it’s easy. Grain of salt, people. Grain of salt.

I dunno, seems legit to me. Houdini died on Halloween- fact. Lennons cat was called Elvis-ok. Centipedes prefer crawling on women more than men-meh ok maybe not this one.
But whatever, aren’t you supposed to be spending your time trying to prevent jail time for your criminal client instead of wasting time debunking funny facts in a cartoon, Loberto? Geesh

Ahh, she’s guilty anyway. Little jail never hurt nobody. Builds character.

And I didn’t say they were ALL false. Sure, Racecar backwards spells racecar.

But 90% of the worlds species haven’t been discovered yet??? That doesnt even make sense!

Coke would be green if it weren’t for coloring?? Verifiably false!

Shakespeare was Dyslexic? And how, pray, do they know this, with that malady not even being diagnosed until the late 1880s?

I’m simply trying to prevent the scurrilous proliferation of spurious psuedo-facts, my dear Kim(s).
