Factropolis -- A new fun fact every day!

Sunday, February 28, 2010

In the pilot of the classic television sitcom "Mister Ed," the talking horse was played by a mare.

  • True, but the fact that the "horse" was a mare isn't the most interesting fact. The real news was that the "mare" wasn't a horse at all, but rather a zebra...read all about it:

  • Be careful what you read, Kahne. This is one of Snopes' "Lost Legends".

    If you click on the "Other information about this page" link at the bottom, it takes you here. You've been spoofed if you believe that page.

  • I would like to thank A. Mouse for your seemingly intelligent comments about the facts on this site. Although some of Kahne's comments are funny and some seem somewhat factual I think we all can agree that the ramblings of an old man can be tiresome.

  • The Dude,

    Ya might wanna re-read those "intelligent" comments, if you can find any. The "I own a vagina" one was sorta my favorite.

  • *laughing* I'm sorry I'm too frank for you, Mr. Kahne. It's a perfectly reasonable phrase, I'm sorry you find it so objectionable that you have to pick at it. The phrase has been used widely among young women for some time.

    In no way, however, does that simple statement of biological fact reflect upon my intelligence level. However, your persistence in personal attacks does reflect quite a bit about you....

  • I happen to agree with A. Mouse on this one as well. I happen to think Kahne's personal attacks on people are just a cover for his lack of intelligence on the topics at hand, much like a middle school bully acts when challenged. What's next are we going to talk about people's mommas. Wait a minute I think that has already happened on a different fact.

  • A. Mouse,

    I didn't find the comment objectionable, I found it unbelievable. The intelligence part speaks for itself.

    Thank you for acknowledging that my comments speak "quite a bit about me", that's the intent, otherwise I wouldn't post them.

  • The Dude,

    Yo momma, yep we covered that one. Good for you. I am impressed, at least you seem to actually read the postings. Understanding what you are reading though, is another matter. Hang in there, I am sure that improvement is in your future.

    So far your comments have been either in support of A. Mouse and/or against me. Although, neither side do you seem to have a real grasp of. Have you got anything to say on any topic that anyone might actually be interested in reading, or is it your role in life to just take up space?

  • Kahne, apparently you are more intelligent than I originally gave you credit, you nailed the dude's outlook on life right on the nose. Worry about little, Wonder about lots, relax and take up space. I prefer to let others do the research and simply enjoy the facts and occasionally interject with a brief comment. As far as the Mister Ed fact is concerned I was always under the impression that a horse is a horse of course of course. I don't recall any mention of a zebra, I can't even figure out how to make that rhyme with anything. Maybe you can shed some light on this for me.

  • The Dude,

    Got no light to shed. Can't rhyme it either. Guess that's why neither of us are sitcom writers.

    At least you do have a personal philosophy on life, thanks for posting some comments of substance.
