The Dunce Cap or hat if you wish was not always symbolic to making someone stand in the corner due to them being referred to as a Dunce! Nope, it was actually invented by John Duns Scotus a Scottish philosopher who actually believed that the wearing of a pointed hat made your intelligence travel to the top of your head!
Okay … now we all know that TP aka Toilet Paper is in short supply – but there is NO need to panic  – no way! There is an alternative resource your can turn your bottom towards … corn cobs! Yes indeed, early American settlers and the Mayans were rather partial to this delic’arsy!
The Statue of Liberty used to be a fully functional Lighthouse between the years of 1886 – 1901 and ships that were 24 miles away at the time could see the lights at the statues base!
If you really want to understand ‘unkindness’ make it a point to talk to a flock of ravens about the subject! Why? Because a flock of ravens isn’t called a flock – it’s called an Unkindness!
OK probably actually means not okay at all, or even falsely okay, otherside it is mostly common talk for fake words – it’s not actually a real word! Maybe it just means ‘All correct’ like  ‘orl – korrect’. Martin Van Buren used it a lot when campaigning and basically it stuck … OK?

  1. I was thinking Unkindness? I thought it was a “Murder”, but that’s crows. Ravens & Crows are different.

    I didn’t know about the Dunce cap, or OK. 🤔 Cool! More random facts💃🏼

    Did YOU know that OK is the official postal abbreviation for the state of Oklahoma??

    1. I know, right?

      It’s good to know that once you eat the corn off the cobb … there is ANOTHER use!! Obviously don’t get the two mixed up, as in DON’T use before!

      Ha ha ha 🙂
