    How often do two-toed sloths poop?

    Cichael Maine Mirice Maucklewhite

    It may be obsolete, but people can still say overmorrow if they’d like. The word comes up as being a typo on my phone.

    Take care and may God bless.

    The real reason is the toilet paper shortage!!

    “Instant” also means “during the present month”. It’s an archaic term that fell out of use a century or more ago.

    In fact, the TWO-toed sloth evolved into the THREE-toed sloth for, well…storage.

    Do actors still change their names?

    Ripley’s franchise’s interesting facts not a lot of people know about as well connects to Caine. Way too long snip from Wikipedia, sorrry, but may interest a few..

    (begin quote)

    Most Caine impressions include the catchphrase “Not a lot of people know that.” The catchphrase emanates from Caine’s habit of informing people of obscure “interesting facts” that he has collected. Referring to Caine as being the “biggest mine of useless information”, Peter Sellers initiated the catchphrase when he appeared on BBC1’s Parkinson show on 28 October 1972 and said:

    (indent starts here) Not many people know that. This is my Michael Caine impression. You see, Mike’s always quoting from the Guinness Book of Records. At the drop of a hat he’ll trot one out. ‘Did you know that it takes a man in a tweed suit five-and-a-half seconds to fall from the top of Big Ben to the ground?’ Now there’s not many people who know that! (indent ends)

    Caine later spoke of how Sellers used his impression of him as his answering machine message in the 1970s: “I called Peter one day, he wasn’t in. And there was me saying, ‘My name is Michael Caine. I just want you to know that Peter Sellers is not in. Not many people know that.’ He invented that ‘not many people know that.’ And then everybody who rang him, they got me saying, ‘Not many people know that.’" Over the years Caine himself had parodied his catchphrase and his “interesting facts”, and has imitated others’ impressions of him. In an interview with Michael Parkinson in 2007, Caine commented on the impersonations of his voice, "I can do it. ‘Hello. My name is Michael Caine. Not many people know that.’ I sound like a bloody moron. You know where they’ve got me now? On birthday cards..

    What a dilemma. Sloths are chronically constipated but live in mortal fear of defecating. Sometimes life is not fair.

    I wonder why they have to go to ground to poop? With predators down there, I’d let fly from the trees and hopefully it lands on predators.

    Maybe the ground is where the toilet paper is.

    In the past many actors were given, or took, stage names to fit an image or have some anonymity , like Archie Leach (Cary Grant), Marion Michael Morrison (John Wayne), Roy Schieder (Rock Hudson) or Tula Ellice Finklea (Cyd Charisse), or even Frederick Austerlitz (Fred Astaire), or Norma Jean Kuzma (Traci Lords)

    “Overmorrow” is just as acceptable in the financial world as “The check is in the mail”…

    Not to mention Leonard Franklin Slye (Roy Rogers) whose friends continued to call him Lenny.

    On the other topic, “overmorgen”, which means “the day after tomorrow” has never gone out of style in the Dutch (Nederlands) language.
