  4. The movie “Scream” was originally going to be called “Scary Movie” which wound up being the name of the famous horror movie parody series.
  5. In the ’60s, McDonald’s considered changing their logo from the Golden Arches to something else.  But they got talked out of it by a design consultant who said the arches were great because of a, quote, “Freudian symbolism of a pair of nourishing breasts.”
