    Believe it or not, the krankies were secret wife swappers. Unfortunately, their swinging career came to a swift end after they could find no one actually willing to swap with them.

    Archaeologysts have recently discovered remains of an ancient African tribe that were different in several ways.
    The main difference was that all the males had 2 backsides.
    After translating the writings found in the dig it appears that although the double backside had certain advantages it also had major problems as, when they needed a poo they never knew which backside was going to operate and sometimes they would unfortunately both operate together.
    The writings went on to describe the decor of the latrines but translation of this section has, so far, not been possible.

    Indeed. The ancient Doublebuttbutt tribe of the middle Congo died out. It is believed they were wiped out by dysentery during the 100 year toilet roll famine of 2000 BC.

    The 100 year toilet roll famine was a slight misnomer given at the time.
    The great warrior king of the Doublebuttbutt tribe (king Redshinybum) was a lover of pet Labradors. He forced his people to breed more and more of them. There were hundreds, maybe thousands of cute little Labrador puppies, all running off with toilet rolls......leaving many unfortunate tribesmen in the latrines with feather skirts up and double backsides operating 100%.
    TBF the tribesmen said (and I quote) "this is total crap" but were too frightened to complain.
    Thus the toilet roll famine came to pass.

    The few survivors of the tribe went North looking g for a new homeland, but were finally killed in the Great Domestos war.

    There were a few survivors. One of them, Arthur Doublebum, moved west and started a factory making the famous Doublebum Bubblegum.

    Germany used to be a suburb of Austria. However, due to the chemicals used in moustache wax at the time almost an entire generation was born with sub standard IQs, dictatorial traits, and lisps that caused them to shout a lot. The Austrian King, Arnold Schwarzenegger I, decreed, that the polluted lands to the northwest be set aside for this generation of genetic oddities to be fast aside there. And this Germany was founded.

    The legacy of this lives on to this day. The current German Premier, Andrew Merkin, is actually a bloke. His terrible lisp and basin haircut give the impression to those that cannot understand his distorted Austrian accent the impression he is a Fraulein.

    British rivers, when 'river' is in the name, are given names such as River Trent, River Humber, River Severn.

    American rivers on the other hand, when 'river' is in the title, are almost exclusively named the opposite way round..........Missippissi River, Colarado River, Hudson River.

    As we all know, this is the "Odd Factoids" thread.

    However, in order to maintain the balance of the universe, there is an "Even factoids" thread over on Pistonheads.

    A runny nose, a condition called exercise-induced rhinitis, is most likely because of the increased air flow; as your breathing rate increases, your nose kicks into hyperactivity. “Cool and dry air—or both—have been shown to increase secretions, similar to what we see in exercise-induced asthma,”
