Fun Fact

Cats once delivered mail in Belgium.

In the 1870s, the city of Liège, Belgium, attempted to employ 37 felines as mail carriers, according to the BBC.

Messages were tucked into waterproof bags that the kitties would carry around their necks. However, while one cat apparently made it to its destination in under five hours, the other felines took up to a day to complete their journeys. Due to the fact that the cats weren't particularly reliable and definitely weren't speedy, the service didn't last very long.

History Fact

They even ate the remains of Egyptian mummies, which tomb raiders risked their lives to steal.

Movie/TV Trivia

The cigarette smoked by Sigourney Weaver in Avatar is completely CGI.

Movie/TV Quote

"We could not talk or talk forever and still find things to not talk about."

Best in Show (2000)

Christopher Guest's dog show comedy is hard to encapsulate in a single quote. Sure, there are lines you can reference, but it's more about the characters his ensemble digs deep to create. The humor comes from getting to know these weirdos, who sometimes say hilariously un-self-aware things. Early in this dog show satire we're introduced to Jennifer Coolidge's daffy poodle owner Sherri Ann Cabot and her very old, very rich husband Leslie. While he remains silent she tries to convince the audience that they have so much in common: Soup, the outdoors, snow peas, talking, not talking. Coolidge's convoluted delivery is so precise it seems scripted, even though Guest's movies are largely improvised.
