    Comedian Andy Borowitz wrote that Rupert Murdoch had bought the bones at auction and was going to display them in his newspaper’s building.
    He went on to say that Murdoch said “This is far from the first time I have bought a British leader.”
    Of course the story is false because Borowitz writes SATIRE.

    @Rockngolfer

    You would be AMAZED at how many times I have seen some conservative poster railing away on something on here based on an Andy Borowitz “Report”!
    It’s truly sad that some people cannot recognize satire, and comedy when they read it!
    Although, in Rupert’s case, I wouldn’t be so sure about the “Buying a British Leader” bit being 100% false…

    And The Onion, and The Free Wood Post, and The Daily Currant (note spelling, not like Current TV)

    We lived in Lake Havasu City for a while, where an American businessman actually DID buy a bridge, from the Brits, and moved it. So when folks say “if you believe that , i’ve got a bridge to sell you”, they should look beyond the simplistic.


    But, in the modern world, Richard might actually find more use for a parking lot than a horse. He could be the shopping mall king!

    The answer to the question “Where is London Bridge.”
    @dtroutma your reply button didn’t work.
    I have to go see you tomorrow.

    But, if he says the Bridge has a “Great View Of Brooklyn”, I’d be a little more suspicious…

    Richard III had scoliosis.

    Still, scoliosis is not the same as kyphosis.
    “Crookback,” yes. “Hunchback,” no.

    Imagine you are a little, old, monarchistic lady who parked her car on that very spot for years while you bought fish and chips for your cats. Good grief! One can only shake his head in disbelieve. Somehow I am reminded of the movie “Adam and Eve” where they build that malt-shop over the bunker…

    “There’s a dead king under the car park!”
    “York, or Lancaster?”
    “How can you tell?”
    “It’s engraved at the base of the skull.”
    “I’ll check.”
    (later)
    “It says ‘Ricardus Tertius Rex.’”
    “York, then.”
    “We should call the British Museum.”
    “Shouldn’t we call the police?”
    “Call the Museum Police!”
    “All right, THE MUSEUM POLICE!’

    Finding the King was tremendous because of the notoriety of his demise.
    .
    The cartoon has been drawn by a political person with no understanding of history. The find is interesting in that we can compare reported history with facts.
    Amazing is the coherence of the find with contemporary references made by the victors in the War of Roses.
