Bull
 
Yesterday I learned Durham, NC is called 'the Bull City' because a tobacco baron mistakenly thought Colman's Mustard (which has a bull on it I've never noticed before - have you?) was made in Durham, England and wanted to give his brand that exotic English ambience...

I learned Andre The Giant, the French wrestler, had acromegaly and was befriended by Samuel Beckett as a child...

I learned that you need to remember there are 'two important truths about Satan': 'First, he is real, and he is powerful. The second is that he is a defeated foe.' (I think that's actually three things, but I'm not going to argue with Billy Graham)...

Most importantly, I learned yesterday you can spend far too long trying to answer the question, 'What is the literary equivalent of Freebird'?
