For instance..

* Richard Nixon liked to put ketchup on his cottage cheese ( MENTAL FLOSS  May/June 2011)

* I'll Have Another is the first horse to win from the 19th position. And the horse's name has nothing to do with the booze. Nope. It's what the horse's owner always says when his wife asks, "Do you want any more cookies?" He says, "I'll Have Another" ( Associated Press May 6,2012)

* George Lindsey, GOOBER died at the age of 83 over the weekend. As an actor, his character once Shot Marshall Matt Dillon on GUNSMOKE. ( Google)
