Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Monday – April 3rd, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. Some historians believe the April Fools’ traditions began in France . . . although no one knows for sure.  In France, April 1st is called “Poisson d’Avril,” which translates to “April fish.”  French kids will fool their friends by taping a paper fish to their friends’ backs.  When the “fool” discovers it, the prankster yells “Poisson d’Avril!”
  2. “Aladdin 2: The Return of Jafar” was Disney’s first direct-to-video sequel.  It became one of the top 15 best-selling videos of all time, so they started making direct-to-video sequels for pretty much all their movies.
  3. Michael was either the most popular name for boys in America or the second-most popular from 1954 to 2008.
  4. The term “trick-or-treat” is from Canada.  The first time in recorded history it was ever used was in a newspaper in Blackie, Alberta in 1927.
  5. Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller has a patent for a hot tub, with jets strategically placed to stimulate the ladies underwater.  It’s never been manufactured, but he has a prototype in his house.
