  1. In 2018, Girl Scouts of Colorado updated its cookie sales policy to allow Girl Scouts to sell their boxes outside of cannabis dispensaries.
  2. The song “The Purple People Eater” isn’t about a purple monster that eats people . . . it’s about a monster that eats purple people.
  3. Polar bears don’t have white fur . . . they have transparent fur that reflects sunlight and makes them look white.
  4. “Mrs.” was originally an abbreviation for “mistress,” not “missus” . . . which is why it has an “r” in it.
  5. U-Haul briefly got into the video rental business in the 1980s . . . they opened seven test locations in Michigan that rented VHS tapes.  They wound up giving up on it quickly to focus back on truck rentals.
