A Piece of Suessless Information for this Fun Monday

The ladies at Mama Drama have stepped up and offered to hostess this weeks Fun Monday. This is BIG! And I love the topic this week as well.
Remember way back in elementary school when you had to do a report on James Garfield, the 20th President of the United States and you told the class all about how he was shot after only four months in office? You also remember that he recovered after a week, but doctor's continued to probe at the healed wound causing complications and resulting in his death almost three months later? Okay, we all knew that about Garfield, but you also remember that James Garfield could write with both hands at one time and in different languages.!!! Why do you remember that? Maybe for you it wasn't James Garfield, but somewhere in your past education, you picked-up some little bit of useless information that you've never forgotten.
What funny trivial fact do you remember that you probably should have forgotten a long time ago?

In our family, we call this Suessless information, and my fact for you today is...the colors red and yellow increase your appetite, which is why the majority of fast food restaurant signs are those colors.

Be sure to visit all the Fun Monday participants!

Cool. Your memory triggered mine. You are more likely to be stopped for speeding in a yellow car than in a red one, contrary to popular opinion.

Good job.

No, really? They sure are colorful colors and most people love ketchup and mustard.

Damn those BK's and McD's. I guess that is why it is popular to paint the dining room red.

Thank you for outfitting your site in pink and green (God Bless Princess Bear!!). I've already got the munchies, and the red and yellow would've totally put me over the edge!!
