    I can't believe it's not been tried yet...
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Neat list!

    No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver or purple
    I would like to remind everyone no longer in junior high of the "purple nurple" though. Ah, the memories.

    The CSI folks would be sure to find koala hair and some eucaliptis leaves around. And if that didn't work, I'm pretty sure the survielance cameras would trip them up.

    So we shave the koalas & teach them to break cameras. This is starting to look feasible.

    Yeah, but according to Jodaar, koalas are happy getting stoned on eucalyptus leaves, and don't have the energy for robbing banks

    I got my facts messed up:

    Elephants can't jump - A ducks quack doesn't echo.

    Man, I don't know how in the heck I got those mixed up.

    So how come their eyes don't dry up?

    Jonathan Swift invented 3 words in his book Gulliver's Travels that are still in use today: "yahoo", "little endian", and "big endian".
    The little endians were at war with the big endians over which end a hardboiled egg should be opened from - the "big end" or the "little end". (No doubt they would have been called the "overs" and the "unders" had toiletpaper on rolls existed in the 17-hundreds... . I posted this as a trivia question in the quirks thread, btw, but here is the answer anyway.)
