PopQuizzical Daily! for April 2, 2012:

The first U.S. issued one cent piece, or penny, had
an interesting phrase on it.  Fill in the blank of the
phrase on a 1787 U.S. penny:
Mind Your _______.
(Answer in tomorrow’s PopQuizzical Daily!)
Yesterday's PopQuizzical Daily! answer: 
True (no foolin').
Scholars think that an copying error erroneously
referred to March 32nd in Chaucer’s tome
“Canterbury Tales” led people to believe that
April 1st was a fool’s day.  There was no mention
of disassembling the king’s carriage and
reassembling it in his bedroom, but there should
have been.
