• The Heinz Company figured that if red ketchup was good, green ketchup would be even better. Called EZ Squirt, it was released in 2000, followed shortly after by purple ketchup and blue ketchup. They followed that with Mystery Color, which could be purple, orange, or teal. Special nozzles made it easy to draw colored pictures or write words when dispensing the product. Colored ketchup was popular at first, selling 25 million bottles the first year, but by 2006 it had outlived its novelty and was discontinued. CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

POLAND - A Polish man held up a hairdresser’s at gunpoint demanding a free hair cut for his girlfriend. And he brought her back to the salon the next day demanding they do a better job. The man, who has not been caught, stormed into the Tschenstochau Salon in the southern Polish town of Czestochowa and forced the owner at gunpoint to dye and cut his girlfriend’s hair for free. But the gunman was obviously unhappy with the result as he brought his girlfriend back the next day and again at gunpoint demanded the hairdresser redo the job, even insisting on hair extensions to fix the length.

It’s Just Our Custom . . . PORTUGAL - On January 6 the Portuguese village of Vale de Salgueiro celebrated the traditional Epiphany festival, also known as the Feast of The Three Kings. While the holiday involves such benign traditions as eating cake and singing carols, there is one tradition that causes an outcry every year – parents allow and even encourage their children to smoke cigarettes. Locals defend the practice, claiming that is has been passed down for centuries as part of the Epiphany and winter solstice celebrations, but no one is sure exactly what it is meant to symbolize. In Portugal,

the legal age to purchase tobacco is 18, but there is nothing to stop parents from giving their children cigarettes, and the authorities have yet to intervene and put an end to the tradition. Eighty eight-yearold Eduardo Augusto, a grandfather told Radio Brigantia that he too smoked on Epiphany as a child. Augusto couldn’t say how old this unusual tradition was, but he remembered that his own grandfather had once talked very enthusiastically about it, so it must go back at least a few hundreds of years.

by Samantha Weaver • It was 19th-century French novelist and poet Victor Hugo who made the following sage observation: “Men hate those to whom they have to lie.”

• If you’re planning to visit the Hawaiian island of Kauai, you might want to trek up to Mount Waialeale. If you do, though, be sure to take an umbrella, as that mountain holds the distinction of receiving more rainfall than any other place on Earth, with an average of about 40 feet -yes, feet -- of rain annually. • According to the National Chicken Council’s Annual Chicken Wing Report -- yes, there is such a report, and it is strategically timed for release just before the Super Bowl -1.35 billion wings were consumed during Super Bowl weekend this year. That’s an all-time high; the number crunchers have determined that if all those wings were laid end-to-end, the resulting line of poultry would stretch 394 million feet. That would be long enough to circle the Earth three times -- or to cross a road 13 million times.

• When archaeologists discovered the tomb of King Tut, one of the objects they found inside was a bronze razor -- and it was still sharp enough to use. • Did you ever wonder how the lollipop got its name? A man named George Smith first put the hard treat on the end of a stick, but candy-making wasn’t his only interest. It seems that Smith also had a keen interest in horseracing, and he named the candy after a popular racehorse of the time, Lolly Pop.

• Those who study such things say that all mammals, from rodents to elephants, urinate for approximately 21 seconds. This is now known as the “Law of Urination.”

The Roadside Sea Lion

CALIFORNIA - California state troopers patrolling a dusty Central Valley road, near Los Banos, spotted a living, healthy, 350-pound sea lion on the roadway’s shoulder. Wildlife officials think the creature had used canals and rivers to travel some 100 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. “He was just sitting there on the shoulder of the road,” said Officer Mike Panelli. “If any officers got too close, he sort of growled at them.” Eventually, experts from the state Department of Fish and Game and the Marine Mammal Rescue Center at Moss Landing, Calif., arrived to pick up the sea lion and haul him back to the ocean. “He’s pretty big,” Kathy Zagzebski, a project manager with the center, said of the 350-pound male. “We had 10 volunteers and a truck. It was a lot of work.” Zagzebski said.

The Dash for Cash

CONNECTICUTT - Two men hit the Bank of America in Waterbury, announcing a robbery. But when things didn’t go quickly enough, the two ran off empty-handed. “We were both mad we didn’t get any money,” John Small, 46, told police after he and his brother, Delome, were arrested for the crime. And why were they in such a rush? Delome has an ankle bracelet and he can’t really leave the house.” Delome, 37, is under home confinement since he’s on probation. The brothers chose the Bank of America because it was the closest bank to Delome’s apartment, which he shares with his mother, and the ankle bracelet would notify his probation officer if he were too far away for too long.

All the Rage in Romania...

ROMANIA - A Romanian soccer club has advertised for an entire team of new players after the current team demanded a $10 a month pay rise. Managers at second division Dacia Mioveni, which came third in the league last season, decided it would be cheaper to place ads for new players rather than meet the “outrageous” pay demand. The club is owned and run by the town council in Mioveni, a small town in Southern Romania. Town Mayor Vasile Costescu said, “If they won’t accept the salary we offer then they can get on with their lives while we look for replacements. It’s as simple as that.” ROMANIA - A Romanian man faces charges after he tried to blow up his kitchen because his wife was such a lousy cook. Viorel Leahu, 41, from Todiresti, said he decided to punish his wife for her terrible food. He told police he had been inspired by watching Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, reports said. He opened the gas tap and threw a lighter on the stove. The explosion damaged the room and left him with an injured hand. Mr. Leahu now faces up to three years in jail for destruction of property and putting his wife’s life in danger.

“Easy deal. Peace of mind. I had my colonoscopy. I encourage you to have yours. Be healthy. Get screened. Bottoms Up!” – Babe Nyberg

Why should you get your colonoscopy?

1

Colorectal cancer, the 2nd leading cause of cancer death, is very preventable by having a colonoscopy. The Tri-Cities and surrounding area has a high incidence of late-stage colorectal cancer.

2

Precancerous polyps, if discovered, can easily be removed during the colonoscopy which prevents cancer from forming.

Unheard History

How One “Skilled” Surgeon Killed His Patient … Plus Two Bystanders Despite being known as the fastest surgeon of his time, Dr. Robert Liston is famous for performing the only operation with a 300 percent mortality rate. In the days before anesthesia, surgeons had to get creative with their surgeries in an attempt to save lives while minimizing a patient’s pain. One of the most effective ways was to perform the surgery as quickly as possible, sometimes in under five minutes. There was an upside to this method, of course, as the less time a surgery took, the less likely the patient was to bleed out and the less likely they were to feel pain. However, there was also a downside, as accuracy would usually be sacrificed in favor of speed. One of the surgeons most famous for his speed was Dr. Robert Liston. Robert Liston was born in 1794, in Ecclesmachan, Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and quickly became interested in anatomy. He decided to narrow his focus on surgery, and soon gained a reputation as a skilled surgeon. Known as “the fastest knife on West End,” Liston was particularly skilled at quick amputations. Where most surgeons at that time lost one in four patients, due to his speed and skill, Liston only lost about one in ten. British surgeon and author Richard Gordon, a noted Liston expert, claims that Liston could perform a leg amputation in two and a half minutes, at one point even getting it down to 28 seconds. He was so sure of his speed he became known for his catchphrase, uttered before every surgery. “Time me, gentlemen,” he would say, holding up his knife. “Time me.” And everyone in his ever-growing gallery of onlookers would time him. Due to his reputation, he quickly became famous for his work. However, one of his surgeries, in particular, stands out above the rest. Robert Liston was performing a leg amputation on a patient who was lying flat on his table. As he brought down his knife, he was so focused on his speed that he took his surgical

assistant’s fingers off along with the patient’s leg. As he swung the knife back up, it clipped a spectator’s coattails, and he collapsed, dead. The patient and Liston’s assistant both died after their wounds became infected, and the spectator who collapsed was later discovered to have died of fright. The three death’s made Liston’s surgery the only one on record with a 300 percent mortality rate. Though the three deaths were by far the most notable of his career, they weren’t the only time Liston gained infamy for a less than successful surgery. While amputating another patient’s leg, he broke his personal record by finishing the surgery in two and a half minutes. However, in the interest of speed, he got a little too excited and chopped off the patient’s testicles along with his leg. He also once mistook a lump in a young boy’s neck for a skin tag, and removed it suddenly at the boy’s home. The lump turned out to be an aneurysm of his carotid artery, and the boy died. Years later, when anesthesia was invented, Liston became the first surgeon to operate using it, and his surgery was a success. Despite his downfalls, Robert Liston remained a distinguished surgeon. After his death, his peers erected a marble statue in his honor and created an award for students of distinction in his name.

The Naked Chase

UNITED KINGDOM - A builder jumped into his car and gave chase when thieves stole his horse-trailer… even though he was stark naked. Mick Ridley, of Forthampton, near Tewkesbury, Gloucs, was in the bath when son James, 16, raised the alarm. Without even grabbing a towel, Mick, 49, raced downstairs and jumped into his Range Rover to give chase, reports the Sun. “I was totally naked but I didn’t care,” he said. “I just wanted that trailer back. I was covered in soap and water but I didn’t have time to think.”

Mick sped two miles after the thief, who was using a truck to tow the $45,000 trailer, before he managed to get in front and block the road. He said, “I ran over to the cab and he looked at me with real shock - I don’t think he was expecting a naked man.” The thief escaped while Mick waited for police but was later caught. The dad-of-two said, “Luckily I found one of my wife’s cardigans to put round me. “I gave a short statement to one of the police who arrived - but he said he thought it would be better to wait until I was home and had some clothes on.”

• In 2002, Ore-Ida, which is owned by Heinz, thought that a way of improving upon their potato empire was to release a line of new products called “Funky Fries.” Instead of boring French fries, you could have Kool Blue French fries, or Cocoa Crispers (chocolate-flavored fries) or Cinna-Stiks (cinnamon-covered fries). Turned out blue fries look moldy, chocolate fries turned everyone off, and cinnamon fries were so cloyingly sweet that they were more like a dessert. By 2003, this line of new potato products had been withdrawn from the shelves. Yet, for a short time in history, it was possible to put green ketchup on blue fries.

• On Feb. 21, 1828, the first printing press designed to use the newly invented Cherokee alphabet arrives at New Echota, Georgia. Within months, the first Indian language newspaper in history, The Cherokee Phoenix, was published.

• On Feb. 25, 1890, Vlacheslav Mikhaylovich Skryabin, who took the revolutionary name Molotov, is born in Russia. He invented the famous “Molotov cocktail,” a flammable liquid-filled glass bottle stuffed with a lighted rag and thrown at the enemy. • On Feb. 24, 1917, British authorities give the U.S. a copy of an official coded message from Germany that Mexico should be asked to enter a war against the U.S. as a German ally. In return, Germany promised to restore to Mexico the lost territories of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona.

HOW TO PLACE A CLASSIFIED IN TIDBITS®

Laws of the Land . . .

• It was the law in Scotland in 1288 that for each year known as “lepe yeare” any maiden lady could ask the man she liked to be her husband. If he refused and didn’t have a good excuse he would be “mulcted of ye sum of one pound or less” (essentially, he would owe her a dollar). France enacted a similar law a year later. • In Turkey during the 16th and 17th centuries, anyone caught drinking coffee was put to death. • Thinking that it spread disease, King Henry VI banned kissing in England in 1439. • Up until the early 20th century, New Jersey and Wisconsin had laws allowing the castration of epileptics.

Pictured: The 1980 USA mens’s Olympic hockey team. The event inspired the movie “Miracle On Ice”, amade-for-TV movie, starring Karl Malden as Brooks and Steve Guttenberg as Craig, aired on ABC television in March 1981. It incorporated actual game footage and original commentary from the 1980 Winter Games.

• On Feb. 19, 1942, right after Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs Executive Order 9066, authorizing the removal of any or all people “as deemed necessary or desirable.” By June, more than 110,000 Japanese Americans on the West Coast were relocated to remote internment camps. • On Feb. 23, 1954, a group of children in Pennsylvania receive the first injections of the new polio vaccine developed by Dr.

Jonas Salk. Although highly successful, a single faulty batch of the vaccine caused a sudden outbreak of 200 cases.

• On Feb. 22, 1980, the underdog U.S. hockey team, made up of college students, defeats the four-time defending gold-medal winning Soviet team at the Olympic Winter Games in New York. The Soviet squad fell to the American team 4-3 before a frenzied crowd of 10,000 spectators. (c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.
