Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets Of Knowledge For Your Noggin’ – (8/16/23)

Here are Big Dave’s 5 Nuggets of Knowledge for your Noggin’ – on this Wednesday, August 16th, 2023. Let’s learn something together:

  1. The Eiffel Tower has been re-painted nearly 20 times.  It’s been shades of red, yellow, brown, and gray, but has never been painted black.
  2. The cartoon version of “Inspector Gadget” never revealed his real name.  But in the 1999 movie with Matthew Broderick, they say his name is John Brown.
  3. Mr. Pibb was originally called Peppo when Coke started selling it in 1972.  But Dr Pepper sued them for trademark infringement, so they changed the name to Dr. Pibb.  So Dr Pepper sued AGAIN, and it became Mr. Pibb.  (It’s now known as Pibb Xtra.)
  4. George Clooney starred in a sitcom on CBS from 1984 to 1985 called “E/R”, but it was spelled ‘E’ forward slash ‘R.’  It only lasted one season.  Then he starred in the REAL “ER” on NBC 10 years later, which was obviously much more successful.
  5. Both George Washington and Andrew Jackson hosted cockfights on the White House lawn.

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