Fun Monday - trivia

This week's hosts are the Drama Queens at Mama Drama, all of them, I think. This is what Stephanie, Margaret, and Mindy decree, (imagine getting 3 women to agree on this):

What funny trivial fact do you remember that you probably should have forgotten a long time ago?


Did you know that the study or collection of trivia is known as spermology, which literally means collection of seeds.

What do Gregory Peck, Sidney Poitier, Desi Arnez and Elvis have in common?
They were all truck drivers before coming famous.


All clams start out as males; some decide to become females at some point in their lives.


An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

There are some fun facts out there today. Isn't it mad what we remember? The ostrich thing though, I think my Babs is the exception. She's a very clever bird, a;most genius. (I have to say this or she will pull faces on my blog.)

FUN facts! Doesn't surprise me about the ostrich, though...kind of like an alligator.

Someone should do a quiz a couple months from now based on this wealth of useless, but fun, info!

I knew that about ostrich eyes...but the others I just learned today.

Loved this Fun Monday. Mine is posted. Hopefully this is a bit on the 'FUNny side' too. Drop by if you can, won't you? Happy day to you.

Great stuff! And if i knew a lot of trivia, i totally would tell everyone i am a spermologist, just to get the reaction! LOL!

Jeanna said...

Excellent bits of trivia. What's up with the wishy washy ocean floor anyway?

Sandy said...

Very apropos! Today begins national truck driver appreciation week.

Remember, if you own it, a truck brought it (at some point in it's distribution).

Karmyn R said...

Oh yes, the ostrich eye/brain thing. I did not know that about the clams though.

Dreaming What Ifs...

Great trivia. My son tells me all the little bits of animal trivia he knows so I was already up on some of it.

Excellent trivia, especially the truck driver tidbit!

Beckie said...

Looks like we were on the same page for a portion of our FM post this week.

I like the truck driver tidbit!

Now I understand why that ostritch was flirting with my hubby's camera!!!
He got some awesome shots out of that I should add!

Sandcastle Momma said...

Great trivia! Those are fun facts that I hope I can remember.

How sad for jo beaufoix's Babs to have to deal with this imbalance. Now we all know to be offended if anyone compares us to an ostrich, especially if they say "My what lovely eyes you have". We know they'll be thinking, "but no brains. . ."

Margaret said...

wow, I didn't know that about clams. I wonder if there's a class they attend - offering them the info on being a boy clam versus a girl clam?

Thanks for playing!

Pamela said...

tada! I knew the Ostrich one. All the others are new trivia.
Truck drivers, huh?

lisaschaos said...

I didn't know all those guys had been truckers! And I did not know that poor little ostriches are so very small minded.

Thanx for the spermology!

Alison said...
