Wonderful Horrible

Recently, we have become avid fans of Horrible Histories. We are now busy catching up with loads of episodes we’ve never seen before. Trouble is, we both saw the title and assumed it was some awful gross-out comedy, the sort of thing of which there’s far too much around these days, so for a long time we simply avoided it. But now we know better. Horrible Histories is brilliant, especially the songs (including, among many others, the Pilgrim Fathers Rap, above) and the black humour of Stupid Deaths. (‘Congratulations, you’re through to the afterlife…’ 🙂 )

Now, why wasn’t history like this when we were at school?
