Default What some people don't know

A survey carried out on 1700 British adults & chidren came up with these gems, first adults, some didn't know that;

The ingredients for beer were grown here

Oats were grown here

The main ingredient of omelettes could be produced here

Cooking oil could be produced here ['spect they thought that the vast areas of yellow flowers were to brighten up our countryside!]

Now the children, some young city children thought that;

Cows laid eggs

Bacon came from sheep

And didn't know that;

Pork chops came from pigs

interesting i knew all of that expect the thing about the oats. guess those arent things you discuss at the dinner table. lol my dad thought that human kids had there eyes shut when they were born until my mom had my older brother so hey people dont know everything they should but cows laying eggs thats pretty bad.

I knew all of that.... and i'm 15 omfg? Am I just clever or is everyone stupid?

EDIT;don't use omfg, I know it can mean "on my fathers grave" but I suspect you meant the more usual version so you're owned!!

Oh god, you poor thing, there's a woman in our village & she can't go out when the rape is in blossom, there's a ginormous field of it just down the road.

Most members know that I think initiallised swearing is as bad as spelling it out, & "Oh my f*cking god" is a bit worse than swearing, don't you think?, come on now, in the street you wouldn't say omfg, you'd use the full version.

That cow's egg reminded me of a joke;

At breakfast one morning mum put a boiled egg in front of her little girl telling her to eat it up or she'd be late for school, a couple of minutes went by & she called out from the kitchen & asked if she'd finished the egg, the girl replied almost mummy, another two minutes went by & she asked her again, & she said nearly, do I have eat the head?
