Hi Folks,

A school teacher once a month has a sticker day. She gives each child a sticker and asks them to write a story about it. On this day she gave a little boy a sticker with a horse on it, his story is below. As you can imagine he misspelled the word ... which changed the context of the story completely! If you have kids or are a teacher, this will bring back memories. - Enjoy...

Most Syrians struggle to even read Arabic, much less have a clue about English.
So, how do a group of Syrian protest leaders create the most impact with their signs by having the standard "Death To The British"
(etc) slogans printed in English?
They simply hire an English-speaking civilian to translate and write their statements into English.
Unfortunately, in this case, they were unaware that the English "civilian" Insurance Company Employee hired for the job was actually an ex 2nd Para Sergeant!
Obviously, this picture of this protest rally never made their way to Arab TV networks, result below.

Bus Fare to anti British protest Rally £7.55
Paint and Canvas for protest signs £38.75
Asking a ex Falklands veteran of 2nd Para to translate your anti British signs into Arabic ..... PRICELESS!

This is an old hotel/pub in Marble Arch, London.

It used to have gallows adjacent to it... Prisoners were taken to the gallows (after a fair trial of course) to be hung. The horse drawn dray, carting the prisoner was accompanied by an armed guard. They would stop the dray outside the pub and ask the prisoner if he would like 'One last Drink' If he said Yes, it was referred to as 'One for the road'.... If he declined the prisoner was said to be 'On the wagon' ...

They used urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot and then once a day it was taken and sold to the tannery. If you had to do this to survive you were 'Piss Poor'. But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot. They were known to be the lowest of the low as they didn't even have a pot to piss in ...... That's the truth...
Now, who said history was boring!

Cheers from the land of the Tartan, Love Kate xxx.
