Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (10/13/22)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Thursday – October 13th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. In the 1960s, McDonald’s tested a “Hula Burger” consisting of a slice of grilled pineapple and cheese, and that’s it. It tested head-to-head with another new item: The Filet-O-Fish, which sold 350 sandwiches to only SIX Hula Burgers. The Hula Burger was scrapped, and in 1965, the Filet-O-Fish became the first addition to McDonald’s original menu. It sold for 29 cents.
  2. Peter Cetera wrote the song Glory of Love” for “Rocky 4”, but the studio decided not to use it, so it became the theme song for “The Karate Kid, Part 2”. It hit number one on the Billboard charts and got an Oscar nomination.
  3. Despite what they may teach in school, it’s legal to kick the ball in volleyball.
  4. Rob Reiner really wanted to direct “The Shawshank Redemption” and he wanted to cast Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford. He offered Frank Darabont $2.5 million for a shot, but Darabont decided to direct it himself.
  5. A Congressman named John Harrison is the only person who was the parent AND the child of U.S. presidents.  He was William Henry Harrison’s son and Benjamin Harrison’s father.  William was our 9th president.  Benjamin was our 23rd.
