Tell me something I don’t know

Can you?tell me something I don’t know?

What interesting facts can you share with your fellow oilers?

Here are some examples…

McDonald?s once made bubblegum-flavoured broccoli


The first oranges weren?t orange.

The original oranges from Southeast Asia were a?tangerine-pomelo hybrid, and they were actually green. In fact, oranges in warmer regions like Vietnam and Thailand still stay green through maturity.


In New Zealand we refer to Wellington as the the ‘Windy City’ but in Chicago which is also known as the ‘Windy City’ its nickname has nothing to do with the Chicago weather.?19th-century journalists coined the phrase when referring to the fact that its residents were ?windbags? and ?full of hot air.? The famous Whaleoil dictionary of words and phrases coined by Cam on the blog is therefore continuing an old journalistic tradition.
