Those drivers who kill more deer? I think they all live out where I do because we have had an unusual amount of deer being hit on the roads out here. These were fun and interesting. Especially the elbow one. Which I am not going to try. Honest.

I will have to pass these along to NLM. He has notebook, journal, and scratchpads full of this kind of stuff. I think he's even started a database of all his knowledgeable trivia. I can't lick my elbow either.

Beckie said...

You get points! That was really interesting stuff.

My dog can lick my elbow. Does that count?

Rachel said...

Lol, these were great!

SJ said...

Toilets flush in E flat? I had no clue. And for the record, I too tried to lick my elbow.

It was a no-go.
