This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing. We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.
Musician Gordon Sumner got the nickname “Sting” because he once performed wearing a black-and-yellow rugby shirt that bandmates said made him look a bumblebee.
“Dumbledore,” an old English word for “bumblebee,” was picked by author J. K. Rowling as the name of Harry Potter’s headmaster because she imagined him wandering around the castle, humming to himself.
These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
