When you point a camera at people in Omonina Square in Greece, they might think you're a cop.

RE: Random Facts
The song "I Hate Mondays" was written after Bob Gelding (I think that's his name) read an article about a 16 year old girl who went to an elementary school with a gun and shot and killed some children. When asked why she did it, the girls said, "I don't like Mondays."

The Weather Girls' hit song It's Raining Men was co-written by Paul Shaffer from Late Night and was offered to Diana Ross, Barbara Streisand, and Donna Summer before the singing duo took the offer. Martha Wash would later sing lead for C&C Music Factory and Black Box but was uncredited as the lead female singer and replaced by lip syncing models in the videos.

Fish can actually drown underwater.

Ursula from Disney's The Little Mermaid was inspired by drag queen Divine who played the mom of Ricki Lake's character in the original Hairspray movie. Divine also had another role in Hairspray as a MAN.

Helga: So I'm not Kate Moss. Big deal.
Milo: Kate Moss isn't stuck in a sewer.
Helga: Gee I don't know. When you think about it is there no sewer BIGGER than the world of professional modelling?
