When was Ciabatta bread invented? Who was the first woman elected to Congress and from what state? What is the state vegetable of Oklahoma? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. Ciabatta bread has only been around since 1982. It was invented by a baker in Verona, Italy who was trying to make the Italian version of French baguettes. (Wikipedia)

2. Michelangelo’s statue of David is, ironically, extremely tall. It’s 17 feet. (Wikipedia)

3. Jeannette Rankin from Montana was the first woman elected to Congress and she didn’t vote for herself. She was elected in 1916, four years before women could vote. (Wikipedia)

4. Larry King once got into a car accident with JFK. When JFK was a senator, King crashed into his car!  JFK told him it was fine and he wouldn’t report it as long as King voted for him when he ran for president. (The Blaze)

5. The official state vegetable of Oklahoma is the watermelon… Which is a fruit. (The Guardian)
