I love that one.

Here's a hockey one I love (and that many people can't get every bit correct): What is a referee required to carry during a game?

Rule 31.1 Attire and Equipment -
  • All Referees shall be dressed in black trousers, official sweaters and a League-approved black helmet.
  • They shall be equipped with approved whistles, tape measure and an official stick-measuring gauge.
It's the tape measure that everyone misses or can't think of.

It is believed there is to be no hockey in ze lounge. Any form of discussion shall be greeted by angry mods shouting the same sentence over and over again, sometimes rearranging the words for humorous purposes.

Gorilla's are 3x the size of humans, but have 30 times the strength and are primarily vegetarians.

I love stuff like this. I always try to store it away so I have interesting things to tell girls during movies or during conversations.

Karma is stupid. When someone does something bad to another person, and someone says karma will come back to him, that means the person he did something bad to deserved it.

My contribution is that if you click on the first link of the main text of a Wikipedia page, and you continue to do so, almost 95 percent of the time you eventually end up on the "philosophy" page.

Tommy James and the Shondells never had consecutive number 1 hits, however covers of their songs were back to back number 1s in 1987 when Tiffany hit number 1 with I Think We're Alone Now which was replaced at the top by Billy Idol's cover of Mony Mony
