Today’s Daily Telegraph – rapidly stitching into its hair-weave the jester’s crown of Britain’s silliest paper – has not one, but two exciting historical revelations:
First up: Charlie Chaplin may have been …French!
Second: Hitler had a son, Jean-Marie Loret, by a Frenchwoman he met while moseying round the Maginot Line during WWI:
I can’t see why the Telegraph doesn’t have the nous to put 2 and 2 together to get the real answer:
I have just read something which I can scarcely believe but wish beyond measure to be true: that King Charles spaniels are, by Royal decree (Charles I, Charles II?), allowed to go anywhere they want to within the realm. Even unto universities, post offices, military hospitals or Nazi party offices (the places Hitler decreed
in the first state-wide smoking ban in 1941). Even if the said establishments say (as they so often do) no dogs except “assistance dogs” allowed. I would dearly like this to be true. Can anyone confirm/refute?
