LadyB, I'm going to have to get back to you with my giggles, because - I can't. I just can not, right now ...

Yeah, sorry y'all. ;)

Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I found a great blooper at Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin (spot the obvious mistake):

Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Oops! I can sympathize with bloopers, though. I prepared a book of my mother's old pictures for her 90th b-day, and on the front, a labeled photo of her grammar 'scool'. That thing is in the hands of every relative with my name as the author. :mad:

I know that feeling, I read over my Masters dissertation so many times before handing it in, and looking back now, the content is fine. But then I put the wrong year on the front cover!

I didn't know whether to put this here, or in the Richard III discussion.
A little mangled Shakespeare in the service of trade :D .

MLE, fantastic!

The Simnel bit seems like it's GOT to be an intentional joke ...

This is one that could go in the Annoying thread, but I have to laugh instead. Within 15 minutes of saying to someone, "Oh thank goodness - today has been so busy I forgot about that headache I've been fighting for two days" - the storm front lurched forward, and damn if I didn't have a throbbing sinus headache all the way home. And since.

I was SICK with this headache yesterday, though. So today I am choosing just to be amused, eat a good supper, have a good ale, and go to bed soon.
