A cluster of pens is known as "pentus"

Seal, the pop singer, can actually balance balls on his nose, hence his name.

Sir Bob Geldof hates oatcakes with such a sincere passion that after Live Aid, he spent £29,230 of the money raised on a ritual burning of 7 million of the cakes, whilst shouting "Pyclets are the king! Send us your f**king pyclets now". In return eight million pyclets were made and shipped to Africa.

-Studies show that if a cat falls off the seventh floor of a building it has about thirty percent less chance of surviving than a cat that falls off the twentieth floor. It supposedly takes about eight floors for the cat to realize what is occurring, relax and correct itself.
