  1. A local ordinance in Quitman, Georgia prohibits chickens from crossing the road.
  2. Charlize Theron’s alcoholic father shot at her and her mother when she was a kid. Her mother got her own gun, shot back, and killed him.  It was found to be self-defense and she wasn’t charged.
  3. The highest-grossing movie ever about twins is “Twins”.  It made $111 million back in 1988.  The second highest-grossing movie about twins?  Adam Sandler’s “Jack and Jill” at $74 million.
  4. The reason we call porcelain “china” is that the country of China created and perfected it, so when it made its way into Europe in the 1500s, everyone just called it “China.”
  5. The U.S. Senate has a tradition since 1968 called the “Candy Desk” where the senator who sits in a specific seat near the door keeps a desk drawer full of candy for other members.  It’s currently held by Todd Young from Indiana.
