Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Friday, March 29th, 2024. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Prince’s song “When Doves Cry” was revolutionary because it was the first major R&B hit not to include a bass line.
  2. Winston Churchill was half-American.  His mother was born in Brooklyn.
  3. Donald Sutherland played a character named Homer Simpson in a movie called “The Day of the Locust” in 1975.  But “The Simpsons” character isn’t based on that. Matt Groening’s father was named Homer, and that’s how he picked the name.
  4. The phrase “over the top” comes from World War One, when soldiers had to go over the top of a trench and face death.
  5. The Hollywood sign was originally created by an advertising agency in 1923 to promote a new real estate development.

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