SniggerApril 6, 2010 Tim Worstallblogs9 CommentsJesus certainly picked a bad time of year to die, why do all his main life events appear to coincide with bank holidays? previousProtectionist arguments that don\’t stack upnextNot much of a surprise frankly 9 thoughts on “Snigger” dearieme April 6, 2010 at 1:52 pm My young daughter: “Daddy, didn’t Jesus die on Good Friday?” “Yes.” “Poor him, he missed his Easter eggs.” Ian Bennett April 6, 2010 at 1:59 pm And he only gets one present on his birthday. A friend who attended King’s College Cambridge related the custom of his College to telephone Jesus College on Christmas morning.

At Gettysburg, I’ll have you know, despite the intensity of the battle and the number of lives lost, commanders on both sides managed their forces so skillfully that not a single one of the monuments or gravestones was so much as even nicked by a bullet. Truly remarkable! Brian April 7, 2010 at 9:34 pm Dragging the stones to Stonehenge wasn’t too difficult with the A303 conveniently nearby. Apparently an American tourist visiting Windsor Castle enquired why it had been built so close to Heathrow Airport.
