Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (7/8/22)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ on this Friday – July 8th, 2022. Let’s learn something together:

  1. There’s a town in the Oklahoma panhandle named “Hooker” . . . and its slogan is:  “It’s a location, not a vocation.”
  2. We call big movies blockbusters because giant bombs from World War Two were called “blockbusters” . . . and over time, the word evolved to describe anything on a massive scale.
  3. Smokey the Bear’s official name is just Smokey Bear . . . no “the.”
  4. There’s a difference between a moonroof and a sunroof.  Sunroofs open all the way, moonroofs don’t.
  5. AMBER Alerts are named after a nine-year-old girl who was kidnapped in Texas in 1996 named Amber Hagerman . . . but AMBER was turned into an acronym for America’s Missing Broadcast Emergency Response.

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