Smart

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!


And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!


Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!


And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Although the products that we use on a regular basis are very dear to our hearts, we generally don’t think twice as to where they came from. But believe it or not, the saying that ”everything has a story” is truer than ever when it comes to products.  Each and every product has a different backstory and has it’s own strange and unique facts about it. Here are some that will completely change your world as you know it…..

 

Barbie

 

 

You’ve probably never even wondered whether or not Barbie has a family name, but now you surely will. Her full name is actually Barbara Millicent Roberts, and she was based off of a German doll that the creator, Ruth Handler’s daughter would play with. Barbie’s very first outfit in 1959 was a striped swimsuit with a ponytail, and since then, there was no looking back. 

 

 

Ben & Jerry’s

 

 

So you know how Ben and Jerry’s ice cream is full of chunks in it, like their cookie dough flavor? Well, this is actually because Ben Cohen, the co-founder of the company has no sense of smell, and felt as though he needed texture in the ice cream in order to experience the taste to the fullest.

 

High Heels

 

 

As crazy as this may sound, high heels were originally designed to be men’s shoes. Around the 10th century, some innovative person decided that when horse-riding, the foot would stay more tightly in the shoe if it had a raised heel.  Armies of men started to wear them, and they quickly became a status symbol for both sexes. Over time, they became less fashionable for men, and the rest is history.

 

 

Fruit Loops

 

 

Fruit Loops are among one of the most colorful cereals and overall products out there. We can all agree on this. In turn, however, this has us all assuming that each color is a different flavor.  Well, sorry to break your hearts kids, but in actual fact, they are all the exact same flavor, and all have the exact same taste. Our mind is always playing tricks on us. 

 

iPhone

 

 

We all know how popular iPhone’s are. But we don’t really know the extent of it. Ever since it first came out back in 2007,  over 516 million iPhone’s have been sold. To put things into perspective, more iPhone’s have been sold than the amount of people in the European Union. Not too shabby, Apple.

 

 

Oreo

 

Ever wonder how much creme is inside an Oreo? Or try to make sure that you get the one with the most creme inside? Well, in all honesty, they are all created equal. The cookie to creme ratio is always, to no fail, a 71 to 29 percent ratio. No need to fight with your siblings anymore.
