Anyway, today's Fact of the Day on Well I Never -

Today's Interesting Fact of the Day, on JD's Interesting Fact of the Day thread; it's interesting, and it's topical:
Donald Trump once did the draw for the Rumbelow's Cup, live on Saint & Greavsie! Well-I-never.
btw, I've always found it odd that there's a St. John Ambulance, but not a Greavsie Ambulance.

Having just read Steve R's post about Rev. Charles Gordon Young, it seems that Gavin Peacock is not the 1st clergical Ranger; in fact, Charles Young was curate of St. Jude's church while he played for us!
Well I Never - Amen!

We break new ground today on JD's Daily Well I Never thread, as today's Interesting Fact of the Day is also a tongue-twister:
Ken Dodd's dad's dog's dead.
Try saying that with a mouth full of haggis, JD!
Well I Never!

A medium courgette - if you can find one - gives you as much potassium as a banana. Also, a courgette is a small marrow; courge is French for marrow, courgette just means 'small marrow.' Two for one - zut alors! Well I Never!

The world's oldest police force still in existence is the York Minster constabulary, est. 1285!
I can imagine an arrest from those days:
"Verily, thou art nicked."
" 'Tis a fair cop, guv. Put ye cuffs on"
