50 things you didn't know about 50 Shades of Grey!

Fifty Shades of Grey hey? Amazing book apparently if you like your reading with a bit of spice and a touch of whipping. My wife seems to be really enjoying things so far. But I bet you've never read these amazing facts about the raunchy trilogy though...

1.  The start of 50 Shades of Grey doesn’t start with the words ‘In the beginning God made Earth…’

2.  50 Shades of Grey is not actually a catalog of Earl Grey Teas. Teas don’t usually have shades.

3. 50 Shades of Grey has not actually made the colour Grey any more exciting. Grey is grey and could only be spiced up with a dash of red. Or possibly Burnt Umber. But not brown.

4. No characters in any of the trilogy drive a Lexus Sc400

5. 50 Shades of Grey is not about the undead. There’s no fifty shades of skeletons, ghouls or goblins either.

 6. 50 Cent has nothing to do with this book.

 7. He probably hasn’t read it either

 8. There’s a fair chance that 50 Cent won’t have a cameo in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

9. The book was not sponsored by Dulux paint

Not at all!

10. Dorian Grey doesn’t appear in this book. He’s a vampire and refer to point 5 about this having nothing to do with the undead.

11.   In the film Pulp Fiction, there’s no copy of this book to be discovered floating around the back of the gimp scene.

12.   Daniel Day Lewis didn’t study this book before his blistering performance in My Left Foot.

13.   Pulped up copies of 50 shades of Grey don’t make quality Daihatsu spare parts.

14.   If you studied this book in readiness for a maths exam, you’d probably fail. Badly.

15.   Funkmaster Flex enjoys making 60 minutes of funk. He’s never made 50 Shades of Grey.

16.   Putting a copy of this book in your fuel tank is probably one of the stupidest mistakes you could make in D.I.Y car maintenance. You try explaining to your mechanic why nothing seems to work anymore.

17.   Being made of paper, this book burns quite well.

18.   You can’t swear on a copy of this book in court.

19.   If you play a Nicki Minaj album backwards, nothing will line up with a loud reading of fifty shades of grey.

Nope, didn't work.

21.   If you read this book from page one when the house lands on the witch in the Wizard of Oz, nothing really happens.

22.   You’d need quite a lot of copies to build a three story house. Maybe you should try bricks instead?

28.   Ric Flair (The wrestler) once walked past a copy of the book somewhere.

29.   Dark Side of the moon, the iconic album title from Pink Floyd – isn’t actually referring to where Fifty Shades of Grey was written.

Dig that hole!

30.   No matter how much cheese you melt on it, it’ll still taste like you’re eating a book.

31.   If you take the first letter from the first word from each chapter and add them together, you’ll get a really long word that doesn’t actually make any sense.

33.   50 Shades of Grey can’t mow your lawn. Or do any gardening whatsoever.

35.   Holding down while pressing X, A, B, Y, X, A, A on an Xbox 360 controller won’t actually do anything to your copy of 50 Shades of Grey. At all. Trust us, we’ve tried.
