    A few selected historical facts from No Such Thing As A Fish!


    In the 1888 edition of Encyclopædia Britannica the entry for Wales reads: "See England".

    In 1903, a man called W. Reginald Bray posted himself.

    During the financial crisis of 1720, known as the South Sea Bubble, the Houses of Parliament called for stockbrokers to be sewn into sacks filled with poisonous snakes and thrown into the River Thames.

    The first BBC radio presenter with a northern accent, Wilfred Pickles, was given the job to make it more difficult for the Nazis to impersonate news readers.

    Viking names included "desirous of beer", "squat-wiggle", "lust-hostage", "short penis", "able to fill a bay with fish by magic" and "the man without trousers".

    For the first fifty years the Ancient Olympic Games the only event was the 200 metres (or to be precise, 192 metres).

    In World War I the Romanian army issued an order that only officers above the rank of major had the right to wear eye shadow in battle.

    When the first transatlantic telegraph cable was laid in 1858 the reception on it was so bad that it took 17 hours to send the first message across.

    The whoopee cushion was invented by the Roman Emperor with the birthname Bassianus.

    In the 1840s London buses has straps attached to the driver's arms that the passenger would yank if they wanted the bus to stop.

    In 1461, the mayor of Jaén, Spain, donated 10,000 eggs to his citizens so that they could have a huge food fight.

    In 1951, Australia's football team played against England and lost 17–0. Their goalkeeper was called Norman Conquest.

    Until 1858, all British passports were written in French.

    During the Second World War, Foyle’s bookshop bomb-proofed itself by covering the roof with copies of Mein Kampf.
