MINI BELIEVE IT OR NOT –
There’s a desk in the U.S. Senate designated the “candy desk” because it’s full of candy.
- The tradition of the candy desk was started in 1965 by Senator George Murphy of California
- It’s located in the back row of the Republican side
- The candy desk is always by the Chamber’s most heavily used entrance
- The tenant of the candy desk is charged with stocking it with candy from his or her home state
“BIONs” – short for Believe It or Not – is the word we use at Ripley’s to refer to anything that is unbelievable and worthy to become part of Ripley’s lore and collection.
