In the 17th and 18th centuries, people in costumes and masks would go from house to house, singing and dancing to keep evil at bay. These people were known as "guisers."

If you "are stuffed" in America, it means you're full.

If you say "I'm stuffed" in Austrailia, they interpret you to have said, "I'm f***ed".

About 67% of all quoted statistics are made up on the spot... except this one isn't! (from the source I got it from, which was online, so who knows for sure?)
