    Women were around long before men. Men were only invented so women could have someone to nag.

    Moments afterwards they declared it was a bit shoot but it'd have to do for now - it could continue to be worked on. And on.

    Mountains are actually ancient dinosaur poo mounds. Scientists have incorrectly assumed dinosaurs are smaller as the bones they have discovered are actually the toys of baby dinosaurs.

    Dinosaur poo mounds are measured in Goldblums. 1 Goldblum = 2m.

    What we now know as the Eden Project was actually intended to be an outlet store for the Dutch Cheese Marketing Board, with the domes being covered in red wax.

    However, an error on the planning application saw the project incorrectly named and the rest is history...

    Contrary to popular opinion, the Scottish indie band “Belle and Sebastian” were not named after a French TV series about a wee boy and a big dog, that used to be on after Blue Peter. They were actually named after the BabyBel cheese and the song “Sebastian” by Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel.
