Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (10/11/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, October 11th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Even sign language has “tongue twisters.”  In ASL, they’re referred to as “finger fumblers,” but the idea is the same, a word or phrase that’s difficult to articulate without getting tripped up.  (Here are some examples.)
  2. The theme song from “The Jetsons” made it to #9 on the Billboard charts in 1986.
  3. The person who invented dunking your donut in coffee was a silent film star named Mae Murray.  She dropped her donut in coffee in the 1920s, liked the taste, and started spreading the word.
  4. Dr. Seuss’s license plate was “GRINCH.”
  5. The Quad Cities is made up of five cities, not four like the name suggests:  Davenport and Bettendorf, Iowa . . . and Rock Island, Moline, and East Moline, Illinois.

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