The Six-Word Fact Contest!

Let’s try something! It’s a trivia contest, but you only get six words. Like Six-Word Memoirs, only much less ambitious. Here are some examples I plucked from our vast trivia archives:

Snuffleupagus has a first name—Aloysius.
*
Kool-Aid was originally “Fruit Smack.”
*
Jacqueline Kennedy edited Michael Jackson’s autobiography.
*
The plural of Prius is Prii.
*
John Tyler’s grandsons are still alive.
*
Shaggy’s real name is Norville Rogers.
*
“Dr Pepper” doesn’t have a period.
*
M&M’s stands for “Mars & Murrie’s.”

Now it’s your turn. You can either submit your facts in the comments below, or on Twitter by mentioning @mental_floss and the hashtag #sixwordfact. We’ll reward our favorites with mental_floss t-shirts at the end of the week. Wow us with your bite-sized brilliance!
