Trivia 12/24

trivia 12/24
A Wedding Ring is exempted by law from inclusion among the assets in a Bankruptcy estate.

1. Fill in the blank;
In the state of Montana, there are about three ______ for every citizen.
2. What was the last Disney Animated feature film to be painted entirely by hand ?
3. Salicylic Acid is the basic element of what common medicine ?
4. What percent of the human brain is water ?
5. What's the item left behind most by riders of the world's transit systems ?
6. Who composed the music for the Broadway Hit, Oklahoma ?
7. What sport was the first to be filmed ?
8. What characteristic do the words Month, Orange, Silver, and Purple have in common.
The cartoon character Donald Duck was banned in Finland because he didn't wear pants.
1. Cattle
2. The Little Mermaid
3. Aspirin
4. 78%
5. Umbrellas (about 25,000 a year on London's systems alone !)
6. Richard Rogers
7. Boxing
8. There are no words i the English Language that rhyme with them

This is urban legend. Donald was never actually banned in Finland.
In 1977 the city of Helsinki was in financial trouble. They made several budget cuts, one of these being the purchase of Donald Duck comics for the youth centers. The decision was made by Mr. Markku Holopainen.

The next year Holopainen ran for a position in the Finnish Parliament. His running adversary labeled him as "the man who banned Donald Duck". The media tabloids took this and ran with it. They came up with many different stories, including that he banned Donald due to lack of pants.

Congratulations to me. I got 100%... WRONG!!!

In reference to the truth or crap. If Donald Duck never wore pants, why did he always wrap a towel around his waist when he came out of the shower?
