Did You Know

...12 per cent of Canadians vomit at the sound of Celine Dion's voice. During the mid-1990s the phenomenon was so widespread university students started to refer to their hangovers as "a touch of the Dion." A similar situation arose in the United States a few years later and was known around college campuses as "a bout of the Rosies."

(LWOT's "Did You Know" began to appear on the back page of the magazine in 1966. Originally intended as a forum for social commentary in which popular untruths were corrected, it has become one of LWOT's trademark features, spawning a wide variety of memorabilia, from T-shirts to a children's board game. We will be running some of LWOT's most popular "Did You Know" items here on the blog, so stay tuned).
