Why did the Violent Femmes break up? What color are zebras? How did Eggos get their name? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. When Eggos were invented in 1953, they were called Froffles, for “frozen waffles.” But people started calling them “eggos” because they kinda tasted like eggs . . . and within two years, that became their official name. (Wikipedia)

2. The reason the Violent Femmes broke up was because Wendy’s used their song “Blister in the Sun” in an ad in 2007.  The members of the group got into a huge fight about it, one wound up suing another one, and they disbanded two years later. (AdWeek)

3. The drink Fruitopia was discontinued in America in 2003, but it’s still on sale in Canada and Australia. (Wikipedia)

4. Zebras don’t have black and white stripes they’re black and covered in white stripes. (How Stuff Works)

5. The dinosaurs are only on screen for 15 minutes total in the original “Jurassic Park”. (Yahoo)
