    RANDOM DISNEY facts anyone?

    Ummm. So me and my three friends are basically idiots and we are all extremely smart and know everything there is to know about ONE thing... and of course... mine is Disney. The others are like... reality tv... marine life... and the rainforest... but anyways. So we have this thing that whenever one person gives a random fact that no one cares about... the other three have to give a random fact of their own... about the thing they know most about. SO. I am asking for some random Disney facts! Its hard to think off the top of my head. I don't even care how random it is... anything is good. I love them all. Anything would be amazing.

    hahahahahaha. I was looking for purely Disney trivia. I guess I should have clarified that, even though the previous facts ARE quite interesting.

    DYK my husband cannot pass by an alcohol stand without buying "a beer"!

    Things I have learned living in ARKANSAS
    1. Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
    2. There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in ARKANSAS.
    3. We have four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, Still Summer and Christmas.
    4. A carbonated soft drink is not a soda, cola or pop...It's a 'coke' regardless of brand or flavor. Ex...What kind of 'Coke' do you want?
    5. People actually grow and EAT okra!!
    6. Sweet Iced Tea is appropriate for all meals.
    7. You have to switch from 'heat' to A/C in the same day.
    8. All the festivals across the state are named for an animal, insect, grain, vegetable or fruit.
    9. You work until you are done or it's too dark to see.
    10. Everyone can't be an Arkansan: You have to be BRAVE to live here!
