Audrey Hepburn danced for groups of people to raise money for the Dutch Resistance during WWII, meaning she did more for the war effort than John Wayne.

Another person who did more for the war effort than John Wayne was Bea Arthur, who was a US Marine during WWII.

This made complete and total sense to me as a kid, there wasn't even a second thought that plugging headphones into where the microphone goes would work. I've been thinking about it recently and assumed I must I have made the whole thing up because thinking about it now it blows my mind a little.

Bea Arthur was also twice as macho and 20 times more deadly (28 times more so if in melee combat).

It's called Ovomaltine in Brazil. I think that the first time I heard the name Ovaltine was watching Seinfeld, even before I moved here to the North Pole.

The bill for a celebration party for the 55 drafters of the US Constitution was for 54 bottles of Madeira, 60 bottles of claret, 8 bottles of whiskey, 22 bottles of port, 8 bottles of hard cider, 12 beers and seven bowls of alcohol punch.

No_47: Fark admins greenlight TFD links based on guinea pig battles. ARMED guinea pig battles.

That's right. The admins arms guinea pigs with box cutters and set them loose upon one another, until there remains only one.

The fark admins are terrible, terrible people.


The extra $5 for the video access is worth it though.
