We're a lot giddier than usual this week as we explore the trivia of things on the side. Chris gets kicky with a sidekick quiz, and Dana's got a list of things that are more famous for their side effects than their intended use. Colin takes us on a lol-lercoaster of ridiculous sideline behavior in sports. Karen dives into the snippy history of the human face profile. Do you know your heads, tails, and the sides of your money? And why are there so many darn chickens crossing the road?
ALSO: anniversary gift symbolism, Mashup Music Round!

Oil up your noodle so you can slurp up some quiz time deliciousness. Dana heats up our brains (and meatballs) with "SWEDEN? OR NOT SWEDEN?" Chris has Christmas music on his mind while Karen made a quiz about entertainers solely for the purpose of embarrassing everybody else. Colin dips into wordplay for his "Word in a Word" quiz. And can you identify these famous quotes when slowed down to "witness protection" speed? And witness how we all completely lose it during Dana's segment about processed foods.

Ah, the foot; the meatbrick with 5 sprouting flesh morsels can hold so much mystery, wonder, and microbes. Let us rock your socks off with trivia and tales about our glorious feet: what does the "pink" in "pinky toe" mean? Why do we hang up stockings for Christmas? And where did the measurement of feet and miles come from? Karen blows minds with the phenomenon of "Frito Feet," and we dip our toes in Chris' idiom quiz.
ALSO: Check your body for some mildly odd genetic traits. Just sayin'.
