I'm a high school teacher who makes "I'm a Winner" signs for students (and sometimes friends) who need a permanent reminder that they are exceptionally brave or intelligent. They get to pick the design. I give you my rendition of Heather's pet rats riding a tandem bicycle.
Grandma (1942) ran flight simulators for pilots in the Air Force during WWII and met my grandpa, a young pilot who was looking for a lady who was, "more intelligent than I was. She just happened to be a looker too."
[WP] You find a key tied to the back of a toilet in an old, once fancy hotel. After trying it everywhere you can think of, you decide to try to sell it on EBay for $20. It sells immediately. Two months later, the buyer contacts you. He knows what the key opens.
TIL that they used to kill carrier pigeons by tying one to a stool with a rope and letting it freak out trying to fly. The other pigeons would come, thinking it found food, and would be shot. That's the origin of the phrase, "stool pigeon."
LPT: To avoid the fake, cheesy smile on young kids when you try to take their picture, ask them to tell you a joke while you take it, but tell them that they should absolutely not laugh while telling it. Beautiful pictures every time of glee.
