Did you know the word “nerd” was coined by Dr. Seuss? And you’re no doubt familiar with Mark Twain the writer, journalist, and all around smarty-pants, but did you know he also invented the bra strap? Jam-packed with fun facts culled from the offbeat corners of the pop culture world, Who Knew? is the sidesplitting compendium of useless knowledge and frivolous facts that you’ve been missing in your life. With topics ranging from movies and music, to food, fashion, architecture and everything in-between, Who Knew? collects tidbits and trivia about well-known people, places and products to let you in on the obscure, weird, and quirky side of the world you thought you knew so well.
Was the Wizard of Oz really named after a filing cabinet? How long does it take for a Twinkie to explode in the microwave? How many O’s are there in a can of SpaghettiO’s? These are the questions that have plagued literally no one ever, but will endlessly delight and entertain you nonetheless. Part pop culture, part pop quiz, Who Knew? is the book you never knew you needed, about all the stuff you never needed to know.
