Mo Hawg - Week 5

Day 1.
Mo’s Trivia Question for Today: If you are afraid of long words, what medical term describes you?
   Give up?  Mo knows.
   If long words make you sweat and shake…you suffer from “sesquipedalophobia.”
   Mo guesses that if you suffer from this and try to tell your doctor about it, you would really be frightened!

   Mo’s Lord Bacon Wisdom for Today: No man imparteth his joy to his friend, but he joyeth the more; and no man imparteth his grief to his friend, but he grieveth the less.

   Some youngsters from Atlanta came to Moultrie on a camping trip.  The mosquitoes were so fierce that the boys had to hide under their blankets to get away from them.  Then, one of the boys saw some lightning bugs and said to his friend, “We might as well give up.  These Moultrie mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights!”
   It happened.

Day 2.
   Mo’s Trivia Question for Today: Most folks know that buffaloes don’t really have wings.  But most folks don’t know that the water buffalo provide a favorite cheese!
What kind of cheese comes from water buffalo?
   Give up?  Mo knows.
   Real, genuine mozzarella cheese comes from the milk of water buffalo.

   Mo’s Benjamin Franklin Wisdom for Today: Do good to thy friend to keep him, to thy enemy to gain him.

   Did you hear about Bubba and Earl Ray and their fishing trip?  Bubba returned to shore with a giant swordfish that was bigger and heavier than he was.  On the way to his pickup truck, he ran into Earl Ray who had a string with a couple of dozen minnows attached to it.
   Earl Ray looked at the swordfish and turned to Bubba and said, “You only caught one?”

Day 3.
   Mo’s Senator Paul Douglas Wisdom for Today: When you differ with a man, show him, by your looks, by your bearing, and by everything that you do or say, that you love him.

   This one was sent in by Rob R. at Riverside…and you do have to say it a couple of times before it makes sense. 
   A class at Okapiklco was making sentences out of words chosen by their teacher.  Little Bob R. seldom participated in the class so the teacher was delighted when he raised his hand to give it a try.
   “Bob,” said the teacher, “I’d like for you to please make a sentence using the words ‘defeat,’ ‘defense,’ ‘deduct,’ and ‘detail.’”
   Little Bob R. thought for a few minutes, and proving that the acorn surely does not fall far from the tree, smiled and said, “Defeat of deduct went over defense before detail.”

Day 4.
   Mo’s Trivia Question for Today: Remember Mister Ed on TV?  The talented horse that portrayed the character Mr. Ed was a registered palomino.  What was his registered name?
   Mo surely does know.  Do you?
   The name of the horse that played Mr. Ed on TV was Bamboo Harvester.

   Mo’s Other Trivia Question for Today: We hear it all the time.  Wonder how many people know what it stands for…it’s the word SONAR.
   Do you know?  Of course, Mo does.
   The word “SONAR” comes from “Sound Navigation And Ranging.”
   Oink!  You learned something from Mo!

   Mo’s Alexander Dumas Wisdom for Today: Friendship consists in forgetting what one gives, and remembering what one receives.

Day 5.
   Mo’s Trivia Question for Today: Have you ever heard of “Lemonade Lucy?”  She is a true American historical character.  Who was she?
   Think hard.  Remember history class.  Give up?
   Mo knows that “Lemonade Lucy” was the wife of United States President Rutherford B. Hayes, who did not serve alcoholic beverages in the White House.

   Mo’s Robert Louis Stevenson Wisdom for Today: A friend is a gift you give yourself.

   Mo is everywhere.  Mo was lurking at the back of the chemistry class at Colquitt County High School (Go Packers!) and overheard the following exchange: Chemistry teacher – What is the formula for water?
   Student: H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O.
   Teacher: Now Little Bubba, why would you give a silly answer like that?
   Student (aka as Little Bubba): It’s not silly.  You said the formula for water is H to O.
