... but don't write them off yet. I think they are building up to a big discovery, such as the real burial place of William Shakespeare ... in a car park.

The tomb of William Shakespeare is clearly a decoy. And despite many theories such as the one that he was not really Sir William Shakespeare, just a hack actor-playwright of the same name who couldn't tell a hawk from a handsaw, nobody really knows anything about him because of a giant conspiracy to convince the public that  Patrick Stewart is an actor, when in reality, he is heir to the Crown of Scotland and to the Borg (cough, cough), er, sorry, got a bit of asthma today--to the Borgias.

Lots of Stewarts around. Has he traced his ancestry back to Bonnie Prince Charles? Mine goes to James IV, but it's all academic because there's no way the separatist side wins the vote next year.

I know Subby was making a funny, but Julius Caesar was actually cremated in the forum in Rome. The exact spot is preserved to this day.

Frank: Yes. Well, when I see 5 weirdos dressed in togas stabbing a guy in the middle of the park in full view of 100 people, I shoot the bastards. That's my policy.
Mayor: That was a Shakespeare in the Car Park production of  Julius Caesar, you moron! You killed 5 actors! Good ones!

And to continue the Shakespeare theme...

"A Ford! A Ford! My kingdom for a Ford!" *ack!*

"Triple-A, Triple-A, wherefore art thou, Triple-A?"

"A plague on both your Jettas!"

etc.

In addition, the team has found a jet ring with a curious symbol etched onto it, apparently showing the letters IX overlain. Opinion as to its meaning is divided...

I'll tell you what it mean. Those damned Ixians have finally discovered the secret of time travel and are trying to destroy the Golden Path!

In addition, the team has found a jet ring with a curious symbol etched onto it, apparently showing the letters IX overlain. Opinion as to its meaning is divided; it may just be an attractive design but it is also reminiscent of an early Christian symbol known as an IX (Iota-Chi) monogram taken from the initials of Jesus Christ in Greek.

Or it could mean, you know, NINE.

Does your Mother know you're out?

 I never thought to look to see if Patrick Stewart is a Stewart of that ilk or not, but he did appear on an episode of "Who do you think you are?", I see.

And here is that ancestry in full:

Patrick Stewart was born on the 13th July 1940 in the small West Yorkshire town of Mirfield. His father Alfred Stewart served with the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry and his mother Gladys Barrowclough was a textile worker.

Just kidding. They know a lot more about him than that. He's not Sir Terry Pratchett.

Apparently his family did a hard day's honest work attending charity galas and writing plays while he larked about in the coal mines. Or maybe it was vice-versa.

It appears his people are from Yorkshire, which is the sort of place where men shovel snow in a wifebeater and shorts and then die of a heart attack three days later, giving climate change denialists grist for there flimsey propaganda mill that claims more people are killed by cold than heat (they don't tout the fact that this based on a study of only four countries which include the UK, Finland, Greece and one other which I don't recollect at the moment).

The bastards!

I mean climate change deniers, not Patrick Stewart's Geordie cousins. God forbid! They work hard, they play hard, they may be in and out of other people's houses all day, but mostly it is to nick their TV sets and silverware, not to fornicate. Who's got time to fornicate? Well, the unemployed. And Conservative MPs.

But really. I forget what I was saying. I forget what this thread is about and I started it.

Any hoo, I won't bore you with his family tree. I can bore you with mine. I have an astonishing number of hardy Yorkshire ancestors. I also have some British ancestors from shiattington, Bedfordshire, which was renamed Shillington when the shiat mines ran out.

No, really. They had a highly profitable line in mining coprolites, antique shiat that was useful to make fertilizer. In the shiat mining heydey, shiattington had 17 pubs, most of which were full of shiat miners and whores, peeving the locals to no end. The locals and the shiat miners tended to frequent different establishments--for various reasons. One, the shiat miners had all the money and thus all the girls, but their money DID stink, unlike the money that the Emperor Vespasian made from taxing urination (or to be more correct, the sale of the urine to dyers and other industrialists).

But I digress. Let me just say that Sir Patrick comes by his OBE honestly, like a good hard-working, bald-headed Geordie. And he does have a giant Yorkshire heart and a broad Yorkshire sense of humour.

I hope.
