Funny but true facts happening in the world

1. Jim Jablon spent $80,000 to commission the GatorBike. It was made by Swedish leather expert Benny Ohrman, who spent a year perfecting its scaly contours. The skin is detachable, but the gator head is fixed permanently into the handlebars with the speedometer implanted into the back of the skull.


2. Glenna Duram was convicted of murdering her husband and then attempting suicide. Their pet parrot, Bud, who was the only “witness” began repeating what’s thought to have been their last conversation, ending with the words: “Don’t f****** shoot!”


3. The microwave was invented after Dr. Percy Spencer realized a chocolate bar melted in his pocket while working with microwave energy for a radar system during WWII.


4. For one day in August 1998 and another in October 2018, Topeka, Kansas, renamed itself “ToPikachu” to mark the release of different Pokémon games.


5. Every year, thousands of romantics send letters addressed to Verona, Italy to “Juliet,” which are answered by a team of volunteers from the “Juliet Club.” They even issue an award called the “Cara Giulietta” for the most touching love letter.
