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.
It takes approximately ninety minutes to hard-boil an ostrich egg.
In 1923, Frank Epperson was operating a lemonade stand at an amusement park in Oakland, California, when he set out to market a frozen drink-on-a-stick concoction he called the Eppsicle–a combination of his surname and the words “icicle.” His kids, however, referred to their dad’s novelty treats as “Pop’s icles,” so when Epperson applied for a patent, he did so under the catchier name, Popsicle.
These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
