I got lost in this book for hours. There are answers to questions I didn't even know to ask--and they're all fascinating. This book holds the kind of fun and unique facts that will impress and amaze your friends. Do you know why the sea is salty? Why $ means dollars? Why Swiss cheese has holes? Why prostitutes are called "hookers"? Why tennis balls are fuzzy?
Intrigued? I was. Now you'll have to buy this book to discover the answers. . . .

Everyone knows that...donuts have holes...we clink glasses before saying a toast...golfers yell "fore!" before teeing off...we nod our heads yes and shake our heads no...But how many of us know why? You'll learn the answers and a whole lot more in this fun and fact-filled almanac. And all you have to do is ask WHY?!
Short fun book. Has a lot of different stories and reasons as to how names and items came to be. It gives two stories at times. It is a short read, great for a summer readPublished 3 months ago by M Wallace
