Thread Name: BS: The History of England part one.
Subject: RE: BS: The History of England part one.
Julius Caesar attempted to invade Britain in 55 BCE. He didn't make, but not for the reasons he gave. Recent discoveries in a chalk pit, found when the overlaying soil collapsed (and dropped four navvies, a policeman, and an urn of tea into a pit approximately three feet deep) have clearly shown the presence on the cliffs of Dover of a line of giant chickens, possibly ridden by Picts and their allied tribe, the Chufles.

It was written in a now-lost manuscript of Deodorius Cassius Lupus that one of the most chilling sights in the Ancient World was an attack by Picts riding giant chickens, followed by the Chufles with their warbrooms.
