    The Canary Islands are actually not named for canaries, but for dogs. This is because a large population of wild dogs were found on the island (and the Latin root for dog is canaria).

    Tablecloths were originally meant to be served as towels with which dinner guests could wipe their hands and faces after eating!

    in Barnsley they still are used for that reason

    New Book Claims Hitler Gave Sex Dolls to Nazi Soldiers

    A new book reveals that Adolf Hitler ordered the manufacture of Aryan blow up dolls to discourage his troops from sleeping with disease-ridden prostitutes.

    The so-called “Borghild Project” reportedly kicked off in 1940 when SS chief Heinrich Himmler wrote to Hitler alerting him of the health risks posed to his men by liaisons with French women. “The greatest danger in Paris is the widespread and uncontrolled presence of whores, picking up clients in bars, dance halls, and other places,” he wrote. “It is our duty to prevent soldiers from risking their health just for the sake of a quick adventure.”

    I
    wonder if any of the three main UK political parties would win a landslide election if they put free blow up dolls for all as a pledge in their manifestos?.....<laugh>
