You must be aware of a friend of his and the co-founder of the Kentucky Fried Chicken, no. His name, fellas, was Dave Thomas, who left his friends venture and founded Wendy’s.

And talking of businessmen and inventors, do you know, who invented the ‘waffle sole’, readers it was no other than Bill Bowerman, the founder of the famous brand, Nike. And George Washington, not the president guys and gals, but a German man invented instant coffee in 1909,that nowadays is on display in all shopping centers and other departmental stores.

Men have a habit, albeit, a bad one of keeping mistresses. Sigmund Freud, the father of psycho-analysis, also had one , her name was Minna Barneys, and she was no other than his sister-in-law.

We are all great fans of Elvis Presley__ the King, but not many among are aware of the fact that he used to wear a toilet paper under  his tight fitting pants while performing on stage, why, in order to augment the size of his penis. And you think, Miley Cyrus is weird!

This one is easy. All of us know the name of the man who wrote the national anthem. No, shame on you all, how in heavens name did you graduate high school. His name is Francis Scott Key, and he was the second cousin of Scott Fitzgerald, yep, the famous novelist.

Alexander Hamilton, was rumored to be the illegitimate son of George Washington. It is also recorded by his biographers that his escort was  a British spy, and as men will always be men, in addition he had an affair with Kate Perry, his washer woman’s young, and of course, beautiful daughter. This is what is referred to as having the best of both the worlds, nay, than perhaps icing on the cake.

And we were about to impeach President Clinton. He by the way earned the nick name ‘slick willie’ for his extraordinary talent to dodge the sexual episode that shocked and rocked his administration.
