The facts of life

Recently I heard a very interesting song. It is called "The facts of life - Lazy Boy".
This are the facts that impressed me most:
  • 3 people die every year, testing if a 9 volt battery works on their tongue
  • The 'Guinness Book Of Records' holds the record for being the most stolen book in public libraries
  • The worlds best known word is 'okay', the second most well-known word is 'Coca-Cola'
  • Charles Chaplin once won 3rd prize in a 'Charles Chaplin look-a-like contest'
  • Only one book has been printed in more copies than the Bible - the IKEA-catalogue
  • Did you know that originally a danish guy invented the burglar alarm? - unfortunately it got stolen
Here you can find the whole song text in english... :-)

And this is the video of the song (in italian):
