I have a friend whose brother works at Snapple, and he says that some of those facts are purposely false, while some are actually true. I have no idea, myself.

Oh! And a Snapple top said that the top of the Empire State Building was once used to anchor blimps. :lmao:

in alabama putting salt on traintracks is an offense punishable by death, and it's illegal to chain your alligator to a fire hydrant.
In riverside, california kissing on the lips, unless both parties wipe their lips with carbonized rose water, is against the local health ordinance.
also in california, it's illegal to ride a bike in a pool.
