All right, gang, let's see how we did last week.
Monday, January 2: A drug created from Gila monster saliva is helping diabetics control glucose.FACT.
Another benefit is that it also helps patients lose weight, quickly and easily. So move over, Weight Watchers, "Slim Spit" may be taking over!
Tuesday, January 3: There is a parody religion dedicated to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and another dedicated to the Invisible Pink Unicorn.FACT.
Sounds good, but one wonders if a belief in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and aliens is a membership requirement?
Wednesday, January 4: Al Capone's driver was the only person to escape Alcatraz; he ended up in Mexico.
GIANT STINKING LOAD OF CRAP.
Nicolas Cage is the only known human to have ever escaped alcatraz. fact.
Frank Lee Morris and Clarence and John Anglin are the only three men that have escaped Alcatraz, and they have not been seen since. Did they drown, become shark-burgers, or did they retire and live a long life in Mexico?
Thursday, January 5: In Spain, they have the running of the bulls. In New Zealand, they have a running of the sheep.FACT.
This New Zealand event is more about counting sheep than running with them. The competition is to count the number of sheep in "the run," with the winner being awarded thousands of dollars. The trick here is to stay awake!
Friday, January 6: Although sections of the Berlin Wall have come down, most of it is still there, due to zoning issues.CRAP.
Only 263 feet of the original 27 miles of the Wall still stand, and those remaining sections are now memorials, galleries, and tourist attractions.
Heh. Skulker, Citizen Skeptic, SQ, David E., and pandamonium are tied at four correct answers, while PANTS!, Johnny Slick, and Zytheran have three correct. I suck, with one correct answer!
