Mister Smarty Pants Knows

By Mr. Smarty Pants, January 16, 1998, Columns

Porky Pig lives at 123 Elm.

A rabbit is not the same as a hare. A hare has proportionately longer legs than a rabbit. A bunny, however, is a rabbit.

Clara Peller (of Wendy's Hamburgers commercial fame) first said "Where's The Beef" on January 10, 1984.

The streets of lower Manhattan are paved with "Belgian block," large bricks of stone that acted as ballast on European sailing ships that came to the New World.

Fighting for peace is like having sex for virginity.
