Did Ya Know?

1.) In 1910, Virginia Woolf and her friends dressed up in costumes and donned fake beards in order to convince the Royal Navy they were a group of Abyssinian princes.

Sounds like they had fun!

2.) Ray Bradbury, author of Fahrenheit 451, was a descendant of one of the Salem witches. Bradbury was descended from Mary Perkins Bradbury, who was sentenced to be hanged in 1692 but managed to escape before her execution could take place.

Awe snap!

3.) Sting wrote the song ‘Every Breath You Take’ at the same desk which Ian Fleming used to write his James Bond novels.

Good luck charm errr…desk?

4.) In Russia in 2009, Winnie-the-Pooh was banned because a senior official was found to own a picture of Pooh wearing swastika-covered clothes.

Winnie-the-Pooh banned!? What were they thinking!?

5.) As a schoolboy, Roald Dahl was a taste-tester for Cadbury’s chocolate

Maybe this was the inspiration for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
