Royal Movements, A History Lesson


Henry the Eight never wiped his own bum. I guy called "the groom of the stool" had the job and was held in very high esteem at court because of his intimacy with the royal person.

I posted this on facebook and got this great thread. Please continue in comments if you feel like it.

      “How was your day at the office dear?”
      “Well, nothing was moving this morning, a dribble of interest after elevenses, then after lunch things backed up badly resulting in a run just after afternoon tea and the whole thing blew up in my face round about five-thirty. I personally wiped half the investment off the board before closure, two or three half-chewed portfolios off the vestments and there were a fair degree of speculation on the walls.
      Talk about being up to our neck in shit.”
