#HistoryTweetsNowtOnTV

March 1, 2012

This week Jimbo (@JimboStudios) and Fisher’s (@CFishTank) #TweetsNowtOnTV were all about history…but thats in the past now.

Jimbo – @JimboStudios

Cavemen spotted in Barnsley every Friday night

The invention of the TV – seems good but when you think about it, it actually exposes everyone to places like Essex

Henry VIII – had 6 wives, who shouldn’t have said to him “I’ve had it up to the neck with you”

Nazi Germany – ruled by the most hated man ever, no not Justin Bieber

BC – this means events that occurred before Jesus Christ like shutting your finger in a car door or stubbing your toe

Invention of the Wheel – this was a wheely good idea

Ancient Egypt – used to mummify the dead which preserved them, which might explain Bruce Forsyth

Christopher Columbus – sailed and discovered America, and everyone thinks the Costa Concordia captain was bad!

The French Revolution – was a bad day for the French, I think it’s when they realised they were actually French

Admiral Nelson – was a famous navy officer whose boat insurance was very cheap

Live Aid – a rock concert which helped raise money to fight poverty in Africa…and Bonos face lift

The Gunpowder Plot - This guy really fawked it up

Battle of Waterloo – was when Abba were so popular that people were fighting over copies of their single in HMV

Stoneage – when hairy men communicated through grunting, this age reoccurs every Saturday night in Barnsley at 1am

Charles Darwin – came up worth the theory of evolution when he discovered Piers Morgan had evolved from a rat

Gunpowder Plot – was when a bloke called Guy tried to blow up Parliament, it didn’t work, he fawked it up

When Women Won the Vote – without this event there’s no way One Direction would have got that far in X-Factor

Florence Nightingale – before she was a a nurse she was a vet, she was glad when the dog days were over

Fisher (@CFishTank)

Allegations against him were blown out of proportion...and so was he

The Moon Landings: is when Neil Armstrong took one giant leap – that said, he was assisted by the zero gravity

The Fall of the Berlin Wall: David Hasslehoff was present, but unfortunately he wasn’t underneath it at the time

The Independence of America: was formally declared in 1996 by Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum

9/11: equals 0.8181818

Election of George Bush: happened in 1988 – he was a bad president, the USA vowed never to make that mistake again

English Civil War: was one the politest wars ever – I think that’s what a civil war is

The Polish Uprising: this started in 1863 and was led by an army general named Mr Sheen

Lord Nelson: was a great UK military leader. During his tenure, the UK only had 1 army

The Bore War: involved the British Empire fighting against some wild pigs… and John Major

The Easter Rising: was when Jesus came back from the dead in Ireland in 1916

Waterloo - ABBA's new single was a lot to fight over

The Battle of Stanford Bridge: took place in 1066 before the Battle of Hastings – 3 Chelsea players were red carded

The assassination of JFK: happened when Lee Harvey Owsald shot an airport

The Cuban Missile Crisis: involved Fidel Castro and Che Guevara getting lost in a supermarket

The Monica Lewinsky Scandal: her affair with Bill Clinton was blown out of proportion – and so was he…

Six day war: was only meant to last 1 day – but Royal Mail delivered the letter declaring a ceasefire

The invention of sliced bread: this happened in 1928 – it was described as being the best thing ever

and a couple from a #TweetsNowtOnTV follower @AlistairHGVCC

Columbus: public transport in South America

Charles Darwin: has a theory of evolution which is questioned because of Wayne Rooney
