The verb came first with Tyrannosaurus Rex as well.

"Wee" Jimmy Krankie is so called because he smells strongly of piss.

Ducks are called ducks because they duck their head under the water. The verb came first.

I just looked that up in the OED and it's true! Apologies! But also apparently there are conflicting phrases "nice weather for ducks" which means "rainy" and "like a duck in thunder"/"like a dying duck in a thunderstorm" which mean "looking forlorn and miserable". So do ducks like rain or are they specifically scared of thunder and lightning?

Just to confirm the "verb came first" theory, the German verb "to duck" is "sich ducken".

So the bird crane probably gets its name from from its cry. Whilst machine cranes get their name from the verb.

Is "Cranes in the Sky" by Solange about the birds or the machines?

It's about Miami's real estate boom, which was spurred by Frasier's skilful investing, although Sideshow Bob later destroyed most of it. Was Sandcastle Disco a real place, and what kind of state was the dancefloor in after a hard night spilling margueritas?

Don’t know if this counts, but I just found out that in 2035 the government is going to ban metal cars. Guess they’re gonna make cars out of rocks or something.

The naff song from off of Star Trek Enterprise wasn't written for Star Trek Enterprise, it was written for Patch Adams.

I don't wanna piss on your chips, but that's not quite true. It was actually 'Faith Of The Heart' that was used on Patch, which the naff song was based on.

That between 2003 and 2012 the exemption for live musical duos in pubs was removed, so that until things were relaxed in 2012 for whole bands to play (subject to certain conditions) there was no live music allowed in normal pubs at all.

Despite loving 'Singin In The Rain' as long as I can remember , and 'West Side Story' almost as long, I had no idea until today that Rita Moreno, one of the main players in the latter, played Zelda Flanders in the former!

My hat has taken a Ben Dover sized f**k.

Nachos were invented by Ignacio "El Nacho" Anaya. I knew Nacho was commonly used for Ignacio but figured it happened the other way around.

Call it what it was - after a short break it was rebranded the Sun on Sunday. I bet they still have Captain Cash, Mystic Meg and the Pontoon table..

I’ve just worked out that “Maltesers” is an anagram of “smelt arse”.  It might be my best discovery ever.

You've got that mixed up with Snickers, I think. It's actually drawn from probably the best and most famous of Gilliam's "home movie" series - Anos Terry: Gore Chocolate. He called it that to get it past the BBFC.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like… tears in rain. Time to get away from her you bitch.
