Trivia fact for Thursday, Sept. 23: What movie funnyman appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine in a photo parody of the famous Coppertone ad that showed a dog pulling down Little Miss Coppertone's panties? Jim Carrey, in the magazine's 1995 Summer Double Issue, with the headline "Jim Carrey - Bare Facts and Shocking Revelations." Esquire magazine ran a similar parody featuring Carmen Electra in June 2004.
