Twisted History

images

I took many history classes, but I can’t seem to remember these, ahem, facts*:

After hearing the music of the Frence troubadours, Petrarch began to write sonnets about Courtney Love.

King Arthur lived in an age of shivery.

Alexander the Great conquered Persia, Egypt and Japan. Sadly he died with no hairs.

The king wore a scarlet robe trimmed with vermin.

The nineteenth century was when people stopped reproducing by hand and started reproducing by machine.

Another Greek myth was Jason and the Golden Fleas.

* As always, my thanks to Drummond Moir, who compiled Just My Typo.
