Andre the Giant with friend 1983

In one bout, Jake “The Snake” Roberts recalled that André waited until Roberts was on the mat before he squatted down and unleashed his flatulence. “This went on for like 30 seconds,” Roberts said. “Giants fart for extremely long periods of time.”Mental Floss

Col. Sanders & Alice Cooper
Stemming from the infamous chicken incident, at some time in 1974, Cooper managed to be in the same room with Colonel Sanders, Harland David Sanders, the founder and face of Kentucky Fried Chicken while they were both at the same hotel doing PR in Amsterdam. During an interview which was taped for a showing of the film Super Duper Alice Cooper in 2014, Cooper answered a question about his meeting Colonel Sanders in the 1970s: “Here comes this nice old man in a white suit. Suddenly I realize that this is the Hannibal Lecter of chickens. I have the death of exactly one chicken on my hands, and this guy has a score of 10 billion. Yet everyone loves this guy, and hates me for being a chicken killer! The irony of the two of us being in the same room at the same time was not lost on either me or the Colonel.”Vintage News Daily

And McCormick was so fearful that she, too, would get the deadly STD that, when she needed to cry on scene, she thought about catching syphilis. Groovy History

Farrah Fawcett
Most people don’t think of Motown when they think of Farrah Fawcett. Nevertheless, the Hollywood sweetheart actually provided the inspiration for the famous song “Midnight Train to Georgia,” which was sung by Gladys Knight and the Pips. As the story goes, Jim Weatherly, the country songwriter responsible for the song, was friends with Lee Majors. Weatherly called Majors one evening, and Fawcett happened to answer the phone, as Fawcett and Majors were married at the time. She informed Weatherly that Majors had taken a “midnight plane to Houston,” according to the New York Post. Weatherly decided to use the phrase in a song. However, singer Cissy Houston changed the phrase to the now famous “midnight train to Georgia,” saying, “My people are originally from Georgia, and they didn’t take planes to Houston or anywhere else. They took trains.” When Gladys Knight and the Pips recorded a version later that year, the song rose to No. 1, and the rest is history.the List

Barbara Eden aka Jeannie
Jeannie’s skimpy pink-and-red harem costume was an instant iconic look for the show, but aside from the fall 1965 pilot, titled “The Lady in the Bottle,” Eden was significantly covered up for the first 10 episodes of the series. It wasn’t because of any censorship issues; the actress was expecting a baby. Eden confirmed her pregnancy on the very day that I Dream of Jeannie was picked up. Instead of replacing her, the producers decided to hide her growing belly via a multitude of techniques, including adding several extra veils to her Jeannie costume. “I looked like a walking tent,” joked Eden in a 2001 Lifetime Intimate Portrait documentary.Mental Floss
