Giant African land snails are dangerous ecological pests, and they are prolific! Three were released into the wild near Miami, Fla., in 1966 and it took 10 years and $1 million to eliminate all their offspring!

Hungry patrons consumed more than 20 tons of buffalo wings during the annual wing festival held in Buffalo, N.Y.

Anthony Gentile of Suffolk, Va., received $5.00 for creating the now-famous icon Mr. Peanut in 1916!
