It's a Fact!

who?

Hey, in the course of making yesterday's horrible video, I was trying to find a picture of the "Kids in the Hall" "It's a Fact" girl. I found lots of references to her and show transcripts, but I couldn't even find her name, let alone a picture of her in datum delicto.

I don't really need to know, but it always makes me mad when a fact can't be found at a moment's notice on the interslice. Does anyone know who she is or what she's doing now? Does anyone have the DVD to check the credits? Does she work at the Tasti D Lite on Broadway?

While I was walking to work yesterday, I heard churchbells ringing. I had never thought about the fact that so many churches use the same tune, and wondered why that little ditty is so widespread. After a bit googling, I discovered that the tune was composed by one William Crotch in 1793. It's based on the aria I know that my Redeemer Liveth from Handel's Messiah. It was composed for the new clock chimes at Great St. Mary's in Cambridge, England.


Interestingly, there are even words to the tune:


Lord through this hour,

Be Thou our guide

So, by Thy power

No foot shall slide


Why is Pubic Hair Curly?

Because:

  • ...it captures pheremones and gets all sexy stinky.
  • ...it acts as a sort of lubrication to prevent chafing during hot, skin-on-skin action.
  • ...androgens make the pubic hair follicles flat, which makes for kinky hair.
  • ...it indicates that you're ripe for breeding.
  • ...if it was straight, it would poke your eye out.
