  1. Thank you for the explanation of Buckingham. I am guilty of watching The Tudors and wondered what the backstory was behind this. What is maddening about the show is that there is a lot of historical accuracy (such as Bucks death), but then it is overall mucked up with a lot of silly inaccuracies! Could have been great if they would have stuck to the truth (and had a ginger Harry!)

    1. Pleasure, ma’am. I did try to watch the Tudors. But I literally could not watch the bloke who played Henry. Just couldn’t do it. Tried so hard it hurt, but just couldn’t. Don’t know what it was.

      1. Me neither, not Henry at all and for the “new to English history” Australian, completely misleading. Sad

  2. Perpetuating animal-based myths!

    Pigs don’t wallow in “you know what” unless they are extremely stressed out, say because they live in factory-farm horror and are extremely smart animals who – shocking, I know – don’t like being crammed into poorly ventilated barns with a thousand other pigs for hours and hours on end!

    Pigs who have access to outdoors, grass, puddles, etc, very rarely wallow in the nasty stuff!

    1. I have to retract any salt which was on the last comment (very little I reckon) because while I would love to know what % of times that a person types “lol” do they actually laugh out loud… I should think it’s a very small number. Yet forsooth I did make actual noises of laughter several times during this episode, which is a good feeling, especially sometimes when the poo seems to show cunning and a lack of Ruth in finding your life at said time.

      1. I should do some research. Though I am probably happier imagining a nice answer than knowing the truth, so maybe not

      2. The whole “going to war in defense of the Treaty of Universal Peace” reminded me of Bismarck – “Preventative war is like committing suicide from fear of death!”
