Did you know?

Elvis wasn't the only king to die on the throne. On 25 October 1760 King George did his usual old man routine. He got up early, had breakfast then went to take a dump. While sitting on the john George was struck with a massive heart attack and died. This should be a warning to all future kings: every time you enter the bathroom you run the risk of heart failure!

I know this is not funny...bwah ha ha!!

I'm sure there's a somber lesson here and I should stop and reflect, but I have no class.

How ironic that the highest ranking person in England died in the lowliest manner. Tee Hee, that story has always made me laugh, though.

Well we can look at it this way, (and I'm never implying heart attacks etc are funny-just putting that out there!) he could have gone out with a long, painful, and less talked-about death!

Maybe they should've tried laxatives first.
