What an unfortunate name for the animal :P Maybe that's why Kangaroos look so aloof all the time!

I found on Oct 12, 2010 @ 01:51 pm

it in an email a friend sent me, where else. I get all kind of crazy things in my email. So I thought I'd share these fun facts with all of you. It came with pic's, but when I tried to copy and paste it on here, the pic's wouldn't come through. It was a lot better with the pic's, but I though it would still be good for a laugh this way. The thing about the playing cards got me, I had no idea they represented real Kings. When I get more fun emails I'll be sure to share them with ya's.
