Quiz WriterCharlie, Heywise Staff

Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Did you know?

Out of every Thanksgiving food, most people will say that mashed potatoes are their favorite.

According to statistics in the US, almost a third of every person that celebrates Thanksgiving chooses mashed potatoes as their number one food. If they could only have one food on that day, it would be mashed potatoes, and they would always leave room for it. On the other hand, about five percent of people like corn the best and five percent like green beans. Still, almost 50 million turkeys are consumed on Thanksgiving alone. So who is eating all of those?

That may sound expensive, but it has been shown that a family of ten spends about $50 on Thanksgiving eats, which is $5 a person. Not bad, really. However, it’s nearly 40% more expensive than it was ten years ago. So we can only expect it to keep rising. At least they don’t spend near as much as they do on Black Friday. Each shopper spends about $400. So that means if that family of ten each went shopping alone, they would spend $4000! Which is 800 times what it cost them to eat! At least they are buying for each other, right? Men would like to say so considering they spend about $100 more than women do.

Men, for what you spent on Black Friday, you could make over 15,000 servings of mashed potatoes. Didn’t we just talk about this? You drove across the country for mashed potatoes! Yet you’d rather spend your money on a flash drive, toolbox you’ll never use, and 13,000 DVDs.
