...this is no tall tale!

 February is always the shortest month of the year.  You already knew that.


You might not know all these other items though, but you will “shortly”.


-          The shortest man ever was Chandra Bahadur Dangi and he was 1’7” ‘tall’.

-          Lady Gaga is 5’1”.

-          Our shortest US President was James Madison at 5’4”.

-          Our shortest presidential time in office was William Henry Harrison at 32 days.

-          December 21 will be the shortest day in 2018.

-          The shortest book in the Bible is Obadiah at 21 verses.

-          Short shorts became popular in the 1960s.

-          Trinton Holliday at 5’5” is the shortest NFL player and he is on the Houston Texans.

-          Winston Churchill stood 5’7” and Napoleon was 5’6”.

-          Tom Cruise comes in at 5’7”.

-          The shortest Top 10 hit song was The Box Tops’ ‘The Letter’ at 1 minute and 55 seconds.

-          Frodo Baggins was 3’6”.


In short, I predict that February will be longer in 2020.
