How big is the Mona Lisa? What is the real name of the clock we know as “Big Ben”? Who invented cotton candy? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. Kelsey Grammer has been nominated for an Emmy for playing Frasier Crane in THREE different TV shows: “Cheers”, where the character started “Frasier”, which was a spin-off and “Wings”, when he made a one-episode cameo. (IMDb)

2. The main character from “Pollyanna” has a last name.  It’s Whittier. (Pollyanna Theatre Company)

3. Big Ben isn’t the name of the clock or the clock tower in England, it’s just the name of one of the bells hanging in the tower.   The tower’s name is Elizabeth Tower. (About Britain)

4. The Mona Lisa is only 30 inches high and 21 inches across, smaller than the average poster you’d have on your wall. (Cracked)

5. Cotton candy was invented by a DENTIST in Tennessee in 1904. (Wikipedia)
