today I learned:
- in 2008, the dutch voted “swaffelen” as the word of the year. it means to smack one’s penis repeatedly against someone or something.
- the tv show archer is written by one writer.
- fetivus was created in 1966 by readers digest editor, dan o’keefe, as a name to give his first date with his wife. years later, his son became a writer on seinfeld and festivus became what we know it to be now.
- newman’s own (a company that makes grocery items) donates all its profits to charities, which is over $350 million since 1982, and still pays taxes 🙂
