Anna (SylviaGrant) Richard the lionhearted's cook ran out pork so he killed one of the prisoners and made this delicious meal and set it in front of the king and he took a bit of it and said it was really good. Even after the cook said it was human Richard seemed to like it even better. I'm sorry but that's disgusting!

Sarah Weldon (sarahrweldon-author) | 6045 comments Every house I have lived in had a ghost! I have two here, one is a child which rushes past in spring, I have felt it and seen it flash past. Weird!

The second is even scarier it tried to suffocate me!

Irene (wingdesilverii) | 2500 comments A butcher in a small twon accidently killed a young man so to get rid of the body he ground it up to sell as ground-beef. The people really liked iy and would pay more for it. He killed ten other people and did the same labeling them as highquality beef.

A bit like Sweeny Todd the demon barber of Fleet Street, and his meat pies, he killed his clients and his ladyfriend next door in the pie shop turned them into meat and potato pies! Hence the London rhyming slang for a meat pie with steak and Kidney - Kate and Sidney!

Anna (SylviaGrant) It was a wedding that thousands waited eagerly for since the engagement was announced. Invitations were sent, the details were meticulously labored over, and finally, to the almost-hysteric joy of the crowds, the big day arrived.

In the small village of Talwas, Rajasthan, Raju, a well-known cigarette smoking monkey, and his bride Chinki were married, according to Stuff.

Raju had become a local celebrity after Ramesh Saini, a rickshaw driver, adopted him three years ago when he found the monkey unconscious.

He's been a surrogate son to the childless Ramesh ever since.

"I want to enjoy the feelings of a son's marriage through Raju's wedding." Ramesh told the publication. "We will welcome the bride in our house ... after the wedding with all rituals."

Raju's bethrothed Chinki lived with a priest in a nearby village.

More than 2,000 guests were expected to attend the pre-wedding feast and to watch Raju ride atop a horse in a procession, Stuff reported. The wedding was planned in accordance with traditional Hindi customs, including sacred fires and fragrant incense.

Irene (wingdesilverii) | 2500 comments Yep, how about this (true story by the way): When a public pool was drained because of cloudy water. A woman's body was found in the deep end. Authorties estimate she had been there for about 4-7 days and cause of death, drowning.


message 13: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Weldon (sarahrweldon-author) | 6045 comments LOL They found a woman in the lake near where I live. In her nightie and dressing gown, she drowned too. Trouble is when they did the post mortem they found traces of bleach in her stomach and no water! They charged her husband with murder!

I never heard that theory before! I prefer the royalty theory or memeber of the royal entourage! They married their cousins that can never be good!
