    Last installment from @ 450 years ago.

    There is an old Hotel / Pub in Marble Arch, London, which used to have a gallows adjacent to it.

    Prisoners were taken to the gallows, (after a fair trial of course) to be hung. Cry
    The horse drawn dray, carting the prisoner, was accompanied by an armed guard, [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
    who would stop the dray outside the pub and ask the prisoner if he would like ''One Last Drink''. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    If he said Yes, it was referred to as “One for the road” [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    If he declined, that prisoner was “On the Wagon” [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    If you part your hair on the right side, you were destined to be carnivorous.

    If you part it on the left, your physical and psychological make-up is that of a vegetarian. Suspect

    In WWII the US military planned to airdrop over France propaganda in the form of Playboy magazine, with coded messages hidden in the models' turn-ons and turn-offs.

    The plan was scrapped because of a staple shortage due to rationing of metal. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    The ancient Greek ruler Thermystopyle was born with only one eye and had a false one made out of marble.

    During the first Olympic games a javelin thrower tripped on his run up.

    Thermystoplye laughed so hard that his false eye popped out and could not be found.

    Which is where the expression, ‘it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye’. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    Alternatively, a tennis-court could be scrunched up to the size of a matchbox?
