Did you know…?

…the average American spends $100 more per year on footwear than they do on vegetables? I’m thinking American women.

…a cat goes to its food dish an average of 36 times a day? And sleeps in between, exciting day for a cat.

…36% of Americans age 18-29 have at least one tattoo? Some old people have them, too!

the average American spends 17 minutes a day text messaging? Teenagers are not average Americans.

$30 worth of popcorn kernels can be used to make $3,000 worth of popcorn in a movie theater? I knew it!

…the people most likely to laugh at slapstick humor are children, the brain damaged, and men? No comment.

…only 2% of Americans are natural redheads? I am not one of them.

the average American adult receives 8 cards and 4 gifts on their birthday? Now I know what to expect next week.

…fidgeting can burn up to 350 calories a day? Look at that… I do exercise!

…55% of Americans say they would keep working even if they won a $10 million lottery? I don’t work now and I sure wouldn’t start then!

…in 2007 the FDA approved Slentrol, a weight-loss drug…for dogs? Phoebe is NOT fat! She is a bulldog! She has a fat head.

…the average restaurant meal is 170% bigger than the average meal made at home? That’s scary and sad, at the same time.

maintaining good posture can burn up to 300 calories a day? Okay, that does it! I do all this exercise and I’m still fat! I don’t get it.

Dawn in Austin is excited that college football season started last night with a win for the Buckeyes? Woot! Go BUCKS!


  1. My favorite was the one about slap-stick humor and men. Nice to know it's been studied and is now official. I now understand why my husband and my children actually enjoy Dumb & Dumber, as well as SpongeBob. They are all on the same level.

    While I, however, enjoy Sense & Sensibility... because that's what I have.

  2. LOL - Thanks for the laugh going into the weekend!

  3. It's nice to know I'm so below average on my birthday! Also, I probably spend an average of 17 minutes texting, but if I were a teenager that 17 minutes would only take 46 seconds because I am an extremely slow texter.

  4. ...and what's wrong with slapstick exactly?

  5. The shoe thing got me - scary!

    Go Buckeyes!

  6. I love these helpful tid-bits :)

  7. Poor Phoebe...she's just big boned!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
