10 things and so on!





1. Raisa Gorbachev sent the UK agriculture minister a book of 500 potato recipes.

Infinitely useful - better than a lot of the claptrap that is sent both ways.
--------------------------------


2. Breaking Bad is the show people most often lie about having watched.

This is the truth - I have never seen it!
--------------------------------


3. There are only seven surviving skeletons of the quagga - a cousin of the zebra that became extinct in 1883.

--------------------------------


4. Women are now rarely described as "blonde" or "sexy" in conversation.

That would be because of the thought police!

--------------------------------


5. The threat of being eaten doesn't deter dumpling squid from having sex.

In other words 'Oh f..k it!'

--------------------------------


6. Jamie Oliver turned down a role in the Hobbit.

--------------------------------

7. It costs £300 to operate on a constipated goldfish.

And why would we want to?

--------------------------------

8. Churchill's future sister-in-law wrote to him in 1907 warning him not to become a Muslim.

--------------------------------

9. Eating a menu composed of dishes cooked with alcohol in them can push you over the legal drink driving limit.

Depends on the dish, if cooked in an open pan the alcohol evaporates off because it has a lower boiling point than water.

--------------------------------


10. TV comedy Miranda elicited a complaint that the show was biased against tall women.
