A face blinks about a dozen times a minute.
This is fairly consistent.
However, Josephine Baker blinked slightly more than average due to her exotic dancing and risqué costumes.
One assumes...

Coffee cake is the American crumpet.
...but usually a bit on the sweet side to my liking, as I prefer less sugar.  While we're at it I prefer pie far more than cake. 
No one has ever made me a coffee pie.
I shall wait.

Coffee Mugs™

Eyes are round and not square like their related orbits (eye-sockets in the skull) because if eyes were square the stress of winking, blinking and nodding would be focused on the corners and might eventually crack the skin. With round eyes the stress is evenly distributed around the eyeball, diminishing the likelihood of these unsightly cracks.  
This gives one's face a much longer shelf life and allows for all manner of grimacing.
Enjoy life --pout more often.

It has been determined that in Japan more paper is used to print comic books than to make toilet paper.
...this implies something very very important but I'm not quite sure what.
I need to get back to my drawing now.

Rabbits have nearly 360º panoramic vision.
Very handy when drawing someone in front of you, while pretending to draw a different person who's sitting elsewhere...
Explains why there are so many rabbit caricaturists.

In 1807 Napoleon was attacked by over 3000 bunnies.
In an attempt to celebrate an end of war with Russia, he proposed a massive rabbit hunt, but the rabbits planted by his chief of staff were tame bunnies and not wild hares.  They swarmed the emperor and nearly consumed him... until he managed a retreat.
His first real defeat was at Bunnyloo.
...now that you know this what do you do?

It is said that impending stormy weather will affect the froth atop your coffee.
It will move the bubbles towards the center of the cup; warm weather will move them towards the perimeter.
This would appear to be very important information.
