Fun Facts From Jack



A goldfish has a memory of about three seconds Very much like senior citizens I'd say They're often seen aimlessly walking the streets Wearing their dear wife's negligee A sneeze has been recorded at travelling over One hundred forty feet per second Fast enough to knock a buzzard off a poop wagon An amazing feat without question During an average person's lifetime, one will eat About sixty thousand pounds of food That's the weight of about six full grown elephants Embarrassing to be seen in the nude In Tokyo, I'm told they sell toupees for your dog Come on, that's just downright bizarre Way back, “pants” was considered a bad word That's one of the strangest facts by far Only one person in two billion will live to be One hundred and sixteen or older Wonder if these geezers are still sexually active Does the fire of passion still smoulder The longest flight of a rooster ever recorded Was about thirteen seconds they say Chasing all the pretty hens around the barnyard Clucking, “ride 'em cowboy, olé!” Did you know Ramses Condoms were named After the pharaoh Ramses the Second This gentleman surely didn't use any such protection For fathering 160, he's a legend If you ever find yourself in a crocodile's jaws Push your thumbs into its eyeballs The croc will scream and immediately let go Then run away before you get mauled © Jack Ellison 2013
