Whoot Whoot!

Fact of the Day: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in 1984 and debuted as a comic book. This inspired a television cartoon show, which catapulted the characters into a nationwide merchandising craze. The four anthropomorphic turtles - Donatello (purple bandana), Leonardo (blue bandana), Michelangelo (orange bandana), and Raphael (red bandana), each named for their master's (Master Splinter) favorite Renaissance artists - avoided overt violence and any semblance of real conflict.

I loved these guys as a child! and some of the girls in my childrens lit class like them now and everyhting is all about them!

Dem Bones
Chorus:I know it brother brother,Indeed I know it brother,
I know it HEY!Dem bones gonna rise again
The lord he thought he'd make a man.
So he made Adam cordin' to a plan.
Repeat chorus:
Thought he'd make a woman too.
The Lord didn't know just what to do.
Took a rib from Adam's side.
For to make Miss Eve, his bride.
Repeat chorus
Put 'em in a garden wide and fair.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Told 'em to eat what they found there.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Peaches, pears, plums and such.
Dem bones gonna rise again
But the apple tree you better not touch.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
One day Miss Eve was walking around
Dem bones gonna rise again.
Spied that tree all loaded down.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Serpent crawling around that trunk.
Dem bones gonna rise again
At miss Eve, his eye he wunk.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Eve, she just took a little pull.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Then she filled her fig leaf full.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Adam, he just took a little bite.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said um'um woman that sure am nice.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
One day the Lord was walking around.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Spied them peels all over the ground.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
The Lord cried out in his mighty voice.
Dem bones gonna rise again
That shook the heavens to the joists.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Cried, Adam, Adam, Where art though?
Dem bones gonna rise again
Here I is Lord, I's comin' now.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Adam, Adam, did you eat these?
Dem bones gonna rise again
No massa Lord, I 'spect it was Eve.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Then the Lord rose up in his might wrath,
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said ya'll just beat it down the path.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Put an angel at the door.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Said ya'll don't come 'round here no more.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
Eve took the needle, Adam took the plow.
Dem bones gonna rise again
That's why we're all working now.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Repeat chorus
To this tale there ain't no more.
Dem bones gonna rise again
Eve got the Apple, and Adam got the core.
Dem bones gonna rise again


Fact of the Day: Yawning
Yawning is an involuntary action that causes us to open our mouths wide and breathe in deeply. No one knows for sure why we yawn, but there are some interesting theories. One states that yawning is physiological: we yawn to draw in more oxygen or remove a build-up of carbon dioxide. Another theory states that we yawn because we are bored, fatigued, or drowsy, while a third suggests that yawning is evolutionary; according to this theory, our ancestors used yawning to intimidate others by showing their teeth, or to signal a change in activity. The use of yawning as a form of communication would also explain why some people find yawning contagious; 55% of people will yawn within five minutes of seeing someone else yawn. Reading about yawning usually makes people yawn as well. The average yawn lasts about six seconds. All animals appear to yawn, too!

Its true No one knows why we yawn and I want to Know! and its also true that I could not not yawn while reading this! Hope you faught the temptation!
