Zydeco Dupree is a stand up comedian and free-lance reporter with The iRumors News Agency.

His sister Voodoo Dupree is a senior writer for Glamboyant Magazine who has interviewed such well known celebrities as Britney Spears, Michelle Obama, Simon Cowell, Ke$ha, and Honey Boo Boo.

Zydeco, who was born and raised in Louisiana, is a fan of all kinds of trivia and has just published his third book.

Following is a list of some of the more than 4,000 items listed in his book titled Traipsing Through Trivia Territory.


  1. Technically, hummingbirds can fly upside down but they don't like to because it makes them dizzy and very nauseous.
  2. Research studies have shown that three weeks before Thanksgiving turkeys get real nervous-as-hell.
  3. The number 7 is really an even number, but it was changed back in March of 1603, in order to even out the even-to-odd numbers ratio.
  4. Crickets have tremendous hearing and can actually hear other crickets chirping as far away as six miles.
  5. Guppies are the only known species of fish that can giggle.
  6. The temperature of the sun is so hot that it could cook a 20 pound Butterball turkey in just 1.2 seconds.
  7. Infamous train robber Jesse James' real first name was Etta.
  8. The inside of an adult female kangaroo's pocket smells like a cross between lilacs and a sardine.
  9. The homing ostrich, unlike the homing pigeon failed miserably.
  10. Out in the field research tests have shown that a middle aged termite on speed can totally devour a full grown California redwood tree in about 8½ minutes.

[NOTE: Zydeco Dupree's first book is titled If Brains Were Cotton, Sarah "Snowflake" Palin Would Not Have Enough To Make A Tampon For A Flea. His second book is titled Trivia Territory].
