    Seth Rogen announced today that he will produce a new movie version of The Odd Couple. Hollywood insiders were surprised that rather than casting himself in one of the iconic roles, he instead cast acting newcomers Rudy Giuliani and Pickles the Ferret. The movie is expected to premiere next May.

    The expression "you're yella" in the American Old West, to indicate that someone was cowardly, had nothing to do with the color yellow. It "honors" Robert T. Yella, the Sheriff of West Armadillo, Texas, from June 5 to July 7, 1873. He was often described as the most cowardly sheriff in North America. He was once robbed of his side arm by a five year old girl.

    The legend of Annie Oakley was based on real life person, Ani Oakleif, who wasn't a girl, wasn't an American and was probably never five years old.

    ETA: That should have been "Oaklief". There's nothing worse than an untrue fact with a typo.

    There is still some controversy about the bird's name. Some call it Steller's Jay, others Steller's Psi.

    Here in America's Southwest, there's a saying that all that emergency beer tastes like panther [redacted] (redacted word gives alliteration to go with panther and refers to urine),

    Until 1891, a common ploy in baseball was for a pitcher to attempt to throw turkey testicles past home plate. This is origin of the term "fowl ball" in baseball.

    According to Garp, pants are so passť.

    slang - I concur. I accidentally watched that movie a week or two ago and it changed my life for the better. I'm now a level 37 vice president.

    The TV show, Tom Corbett, Pennsylvania Governor, is my favorite. I love when he flies in the Polaris from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia, fighting the Nittany lions along the way.

    I was caught up in the Rapture. I saw a lot of giant angels with fishing poles and frying pans, casting lines and licking their lips... I hastily unhooked myself and returned to Earth.
