Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (1/5/24)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Friday, January 5th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Goldfish were originally green or gray, and orange ones had rare mutations.  But those were more popular in China, so they bred the orange goldfish together.
  2. A few years before Samuel Morse invented Morse Code, he ran for mayor of New York using the campaign slogan “No Immigrants.  No Catholics.”  He lost the election.
  3. Paul Frees voices the unseen “Ghost Host,” who narrates the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland.  He’s known as “The Man of a Thousand Voices,” and his list of credits includes Santa Claus in “Frosty the Snowman”.
  4. Initially, John Belushi made LESS money for “Animal House” than the HORSE in the movie.  John got $35,000, and the horse got $40K.  John did get a bonus after the movie became a hit, but it’s unclear how much that was.
  5. Quaker Oats wasn’t founded by Quakers and has never been involved with them in any way.  They got the name because the company started in the late-1800s, and at the time, Quaker businessmen were known for their honesty.

Be sure to share these 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ with your family, friends & coworkers at some point today!
