Fact of the Day: Prince Plague

King Francis I of France's third son Charles came across houses that had been sealed off from plague. Foolishly he claimed that no prince of France had ever died from plague and rumors said he took dares to test his confidence out. He died of plague not long afterward.

    1. I can only presume that you are referring to that twit called Donald and not the Disney one!
      Oh yes let a plague descend on that damn building on Penn Avenue and the world will be a far better place.

      You have to have a laugh at Turnip Top selling comic jet planes to Norway. The Norwegian Prime Minister, Erna Solberg must have wondered where the hell she was.
      Is that country between Canada and Mexico ( my sympathy to the people of both) now called THE USI ???
      The "I" being for "idiots" instead of States.

  9. My dad always warned me not to take dares! Too bad King Francis I hadn't drilled that into his son's head.
