The iconic Hollywood sign has loomed over the epicenter of American movie making since 1923, and its 87 year history includes plenty of interesting tidbits.

The sign read HOLLYWOODLAND from 1923 to 1949.
Each letter originally stood 50 feet (15 m) and 30 feet (9.1 m) wide high, but renovations in 1978 resized the letters to 45 feet (14 m) tall and anywhere from 31 to 39 feet (9.4 to 12 m) wide.
In 1932, Broadway actress Peg Entwistle committed suicide by jumping off the letter “H.”
Alice Cooper led the 1978 donation drive to remodel the famous sign. The shock rocker contributed $27,000 of his own money to the project, and bought an “O” in memory of Groucho Marx.
Hugh Hefner donated to the restoration of the “Y” with a $27,777 contribution.
In the 1940s, the sign’s official caretaker, Albert Kothe, destroyed the “H” after crashing into it while driving drunk.
In January 1976, following the passage of a state law decriminalizing marijuana, vandals altered the sign to read ” HOLLYWeeD.”

Survey reveals Top 50 funniest jokes ever told

[HK]

Comedy genius Tommy Cooper had by far the most jokes in the list, which also includes gags by Peter Kay and Lee Evans.

Jokes ranged from the legendary one-liner about a zoo with just one dog being a 'shitzu' - to ones about wives, husbands, blondes and foreigners.

The study was carried out after Tim Vine's joke "I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again." was voted the best of this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

A spokesman for OnePoll, which carried out the research, said: "The majority of these jokes are clean and genuinely funny - but a lot are pretty subjective and what one person finds hilarious, someone else may not.

There are many sites which I found out randomly.Randomly here means like,searching for pics,videos,blogs,fan fictions,stories etc.And Google helps a lot!So I decided to share the names of some websites (Five of them) which I found randomly while surfing :)

It was I think 2009's end or 2010 when I found this website!That day,I was searching for some videos of Glee,some special episodes,which were not uploaded at YouTube (Or I was not able to find them as I was too lazy to flip to the 2nd page!)And then I found a link of video,uploaded on Fanpop.I clicked t,watched some episodes,and then I clicked the Poll button of the club by mistake and discovered some fabulous questions..I wanted to answer those and then,a message came 'Sign Up today to play polls and lots more'.I sighed.Signing up in a website without even knowing it?!Impossible.So,I decided to explore Fanpop.I saw some other clubs too,especially Disney-related,for I'm a Die-hard and fanatic of Disney!And then I read some articles,some answers,some fans,and then my expression was like "O0O Awesome website!"And then I joined it and today...
