Hold on to your hats, yarmulkes, and/or turbans, cause I’ve got a piece of movie trivia from IMDb that will knock your socks off! Actually, I guess I should have told you to hold on to your socks, all things considered, but I digress.

By now you’ve probably seen Uggie, the lovable mutt who appeared in the Oscar-nominated film The Artist as well as the not-even-allowed-in-the-Oscar-parking-lot film, Water for Elephants. Well, while combing through his IMDb page, I came across this startling bit of trivia in the aptly named “trivia section.” As it turns out, Uggie the Dog “is a dog.” Crazy, right?

Now, I’m no dummy, so I know better than to believe everything I read on the Internet, especially if it’s dog related. After all, I’ve been hearing rumors that Katherine Heigl is a bitch for years, but last week when I brought her a bag of bacon flavored Beggin’ Strips outside the Golden Globes, she just looked at me like I was nuts before peeing on my leg and scampering away in a huff.

So, not wanting to get tricked again, I went to Snopes.com to verify the claim. Unfortunately, an entry on the subject has not yet been created, so for now, let’s just file this one as “undetermined.”

It’s the question on everybody’s mind: how many different types of guns were used in the 2007 Dan Fogler comedy Balls of Fury? It’s a question that has baffled fans, movie historians, and expert scientists for quite some time now. Finally, there’s a website brilliant enough to solve the mystery.

Enter the Internet Movie Firearms Database (IMFDB). It’s like the IMDB, only instead of generally useful info on movie casts, release dates and box office info, you have page after page of cataloguing every gun in every scene of every movie and television show (including many screenshots). This level of dedication is truly astounding and praiseworthy, unless the editors of the IMFDB are crazy gun-nuts. In that case, a film database website can be admissible as evidence in court, right?

Oh, and to answer that important question: there are 19 different types of guns in Balls of Fury, including an M4A1 Carbine! Now you know, and knowing is half the… something. I don’t know. (Boing Boing)
