    Well old chap, when light passes through the soap bubbles, which have multiple surfaces, the light is scattered in different directions, revealing the natural colour of light (which is white).

    "A man walks into a chemist's and says, 'Can I have a bar of soap, please?'
    The chemist says, 'Do you want it scented?' And the man says, 'No, I'll take it with me now.'"

    The heaviest lion on record weighed, an amazing, 375 kg (826 lb for those of you, not on the metric system). I think that may be twice the weight of Donald Trump.

    'Inkling'

    If you change 'i' to an 'ä' in Swedish, you have the word 'änkling' which means widower.
