Blackadder on Byron: ‘Mrs Miggins, There is nothing intellectual about wandering around Italy in a big shirt trying to get laid!’
After he’d signed up to join the tank regiment, Peter Ustinov was asked why he chosen that one. He replied ‘well, if I must go to war, I’d rather do it sitting down…..’ Wonderful!
So we appear to be ‘enjoying’ the 2020 Olympics. Is this simply because they had the posters and signage done? I think it would have been very cool and 21st-century if they had simply send around a bunch of people with Sharpies and spray cans to alter the signs!
Does this mean that in the future we can attach unrelated numbers to events rather than follow the clearly outmoded practice of using the actual year? Assuming this to be the case, and due to the fact that I have recently had a significant birthday, I am planning to use 2000 as my year of birth from now on. Not only that, I shall adjust it every fifth year to ensure that I am permanently in my twenties.
Please read to the end.
