What 2 countries boycotted both the 1980 and the 1984 Olympics?  What is the best selling Irish Whiskey in the U.S.?  What did Phil Hartman do before he was famous?  All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. Meat Loaf’s album “Bat Out of Hell” came out in 1977, but still sells about 200,000 copies a year.  (Wikipedia)

2. A total of 65 countries boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, and 14 boycotted the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. But only two countries boycotted both: Iran and Albania. (Wikipedia)

3. Perrier is naturally carbonated, but the carbon dioxide that makes the bubbles is removed when it’s purified, then they add carbonation back in artificially. (Wikipedia)

4. Before Phil Hartman became famous, he designed cover art for albums by America and Poco. (All Music)

5. Jameson sells more Irish whisky in the United States than every other brand combined. Bushmills is second but Jameson outsells them by 1,300%. (Vine Pair)
