If you laid Robin's Merry Men end to end, and when Maid Marian was around that's exactly what happened.

/apologies to Dorothy Parker, who is dead and probably doesn't care.

That would be quite a trick since no one has been able to prove he actually existed.

You know it's true every lie they do they do it for you.

Great. Just f*cking great.

First, Mom drops the whole Easter Bunny bullsh*t on me. Then, last year, it was the whole Santa Claus discussion.

Is there anything else you'd all like to get out of the way?

Wait, we can verify this. Does he have an english accent?

The only thing that would have made that movie better would be if it featured a 1991 Nicholas Cage...

You know all those stories about Jesus...

Yeah, but does it have a forced air furnace or cable tv?

Yeah... There's a whole book written about it.

You should probably read it sometime.

Now, now, to be fair, Jesus very likely DID exist.

Eh, English historians are pretty sure he did, though it's not a 100%, set in stone type thing. They don't know exactly where he fits in time though, the vast majority of people back then didn't leave many records. Earliest we have is a couple historical chronicles written in the 1300s and 1400s placing entries on him at 1266 and 1283.

I hope so. That guy was cool as sh*t.

1.3m quid for a house like that? What's the catch?

Ah, yeah, it's in Brighouse.

You could tuck a turkey fryer near the portico.

Costs approximately three zillion pounds a year to maintain, I suspect.

Of course he exists.  If he doesn't, who the hell has been cleaning my pool?

I prefer non fiction, although I did read The Hunger Games trilogy a while ago.

The Estate Agent went to a lot of trouble to get that story in the newspaper, and this one didn't even provide a link to the property.

Charnock Bates. You'd think that for a specialist agent they could do better photographs. I mean really.

Yes, I bet the heating costs would add up pretty fast.

But he was supposedly bumped off by the scheming prioress of Kirklees, who hastened his demise by draining his blood.
fired an arrow out the window from his deathbed, asking that he be buried where it landed.


Uh. Why not fire the arrow into the person that's trying to kill you?

There's also a little nook in the kitchen for cooking things in oil. It's called a fryer tuck.

/Literally got nuttin'

Rabbi Tuckman does not think that is Kosher.
