Sad isn't it. Speaks volumes for the nation of retards that is being spawned by semi-educated council estate vermin (before I get ripped to shreds I am from an inner city/council estate). Sir Winston Churchill!!!!!

I'm sure they could also name half the reality show contestants and soap opera plots from the last 2 years though :roll:

Boudica
Sir Walter Raleigh
Boudica also known as Boadicea, queen of the Iceni, took on the might of Rome, but unfortunately lost
Sir Walter Raleigh, one of Queen Elizabeth 1's favourite famed for bringing potatoes and tobacco over to this country.
Hope this helps you out, S-B.

Boudica
Sir Walter Raleigh
1. threw a wobbly after her daughters were raped to death by roman soldiers and took it out on St. Albans. (may have even burned it to the ground, not sure)

2. Tried to cosy up to Good Queen Bess by buying her a large sack of potatoes and a packet of Lambert & Butler after the longest shopping trip in history.

I'll let you guess which one was which.

There should an IQ test and all those coning under a pre-set target score should be wheeled away for a lethal injection or something horrible involving mains electricity and delicate bits of anatomy. This could also be extended to people with poor manners or personal hygiene problems, bad drivers, beardies and ugly birds. Hmm, the more I think about those extra ones the more I like them.

I understand that most of the list are household names and therefore should be known to most people who aren't as thick as pigsh-it, but Cleopatra is a fairly difficult one. Their seminal hit 'Comin' atcha' was released back in 1998 and they only followed it up with a couple of lacklustre attempts at further chart success



I, for one, had to struggle a bit, getting them confused with Eternal and three of Five Star.

Loved that post BB101. I think you should consider becoming a History teacher!
