Billy Connolly is fantastic but then i'm a Scot and i think that its mandatory to have that opinion otherwise you are deported.

If you don't like Billy Connolly, I think you should be deported from Earth and sent off on a rocket to Mars a-hard-days-night-paul-10

What if you don't know about Billy Conolly and/or are agnostic? Will you still get the rocket-to-Mars-deportment treatment? 

Or should you just do what the rest all do, or Crackerbox Palace may have no other choice than to deport you? 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

You don't have to join the Connolly-based religion, you just have to know that he's great!

Today I learned who Billy Conolly is.

In that video, he is correct in that there is no mistaking what one means when one emphatically says those two words. I'd wager that even non-English speaking people know what it means.

I learned that:

In 2006, Stella commissioned Adam Hargreaves (Roger's son) to do a 'Little Miss Stella' book for her which is quite cute, it remains the only Mr. Men/Little Miss' book to be based on a real person.

 

 

 

My favourite 'Mr.Men' character is Mr. Clumsy

Thats so cool to know about Little Miss Stella.

My favourite Mr Man is Mr Grumpy. Obvious why.

latest?cb=20090712073450Image Enlarger

Reading up on Mr Grumpy (so i've learnt this today) and its no wonder why he's brilliant, he's strangely similar to me.

In the tv series:

  • He tied Mr. Tickle's arms in Up and Down.
  • When Mr Tickle tries to tickle him he often says "not if you value your arms", implying he will possibly break Mr. Tickle's arms
  • He got kicked out of the supermarket by Mr. Strong (Supermarket).
  • He's one of the many characters who don't care if Mr. Bump gets hurt.
  • He said to Mr Scatterbrain "You're not a well man, are you" in Hobbies.
  • Despite his grumpy attitude and stubborn nature, he is relatively polite and civil to anyone he talks to.

This is the clincher

He also now lives in a small brown house with signs that say "Go Away" and have frowns on them in his front yard. 

That's how to live.

I learned a lot of reasons why Queen Elizabeth I might have been the actual author of the so-called Shakespeare's plays. And that the Globe Theatre was made of wood, straw, and goat hair. 

I know-- goat hair?!?!!!?!??!!!!!! 

Also that when two people on electric guitars are jamming, and one person on an acoustic guitar tries to play, it doesn't work very well. And also that electric guitars are just like acoustic guitars, only cooler... or so claimeth the possessor of the said electric guitar. As I see it,  while it is true that electrics are just like acoustics, they are not cooler, but simply louder and more annoying at social gatherings. a-hard-days-night-john-1

My hypothetical money is on Christopher Marlowe!

You can't prove me right and you can't prove me wrong so meh!

 

Also there are these eejits wandering around "we'd be classed as junior terrorists", "get the Brits out of Ireland"- the only way you would in anyway get Northern Ireland "back" is by having a referendum in both countries which would most likely get rejected and won't be happening for a long, long time anyways (hey I might see it during my lifetime!) especially since Scotland voted "no" in their independence referendum (don't get me started on the irony of them saying they want the Brits out but then they train in English) Also I like how they train with hurleys, back in my day men going off for fighting used broomstick handles and that is the most half-arsed marching I've ever!

All I have to say is thank Christ that it's difficult to get a gun around here a-hard-days-night-paul-7

She influenced his plays since Shakespeare wrote what the monarch wanted, that's why after she died, he made a bunch of historical plays cause the next king liked them.

 

Why doesn't Little Miss Stella wear any clothing?

She is wearing a rather dapper bow and a nice pair of kitten heels.

Today I learned that people actually fall for those ridiculous Shakespeare conspiracy theories.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

We don't actually know about much William Shakespeare the man (who couldn't even decide on what way to spell his own surname), listen to Mark Twain "So far as anybody actually knows and can prove, Shakespeare of Stratford-on-Avon never wrote a play in his life."

I can't prove it.

You can't prove it.

We most likely aren't going to prove it.

 

I think he wrote his own plays, sonnets etc. but do I really care either way- no.

So long as I've got Puck's 'I am that merry wanderer of the night' to recite during auditions, I don't care.

Something I learned this year, which was probably obvious to the rest of the world, is that Brussels sprouts originally came from Brussels.

What about Chinese mallow, New Zealand spinach, and Swiss chard?

Here is an interesting one:

There were 35 different assassination attempts on Hitler,and as we all know- all of them failed.

 

Similar to Ex Tex's post above, I felt a right idiot when I learned that 'Times Square' was named after 'The New York Times' newspaper who have their headquarters there a-hard-days-night-paul-7
