Fun Fact Friday.

It's Friday. You know what that means.

Last week, some of you brought it full force and some of you just fell a little flat and got a little e-mail reminder from me to step up your game and do like the post calls for AND LEAVE A FUN FACT.*

Fun facts can be about whatever you want BUT THEY MUST BE TRUE. That is what makes them a fact. Don't believe me? Look it up.

Damnit. This blog is educational.



Today's fun fact is...

The Mona Lisa has no eyebrows.



I posted this to save you the time Google-ing it. Because I know you would.

Now leave your facts.

Happy weekending!






*But damnit if you guys didn't step it up yesterday with the recipes. Way to be there!

So there you have it.

It was discovered on a space mission that a frog can throw up. The frog throws up it's stomach first, so the stomach is dangling out of it's mouth. Then the frog uses it's forearms to dig out all of the stomach's contents and then swallows the stomach back down again.

But here's a fun fact--in the city of Kennesaw, GA (Where I happen to live) it's against the law to NOT own a firearm. So I am breaking the law by not having a gun in my house. Truth. The law is on the books.
