Fibbing Friday — Kings, Queens, and Presidents

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as host for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Today is Frank’s turn to host and here are his questions.

1-What event took place on Wednesday, January 20th, 2021?

My entire extended family participated in a Zoom call.

2-What do Joseph Biden, Warren G. Harding, and James Monroe all have in common?

They were all born female and had sex change operations.

3-What distinction does James Monroe have that no President since can claim?

He was married to Marilyn Monroe before she married Joe DiMaggio.

4-Why did George H. W. Bush call George W. Bush, “Quincy”?

Because he told his wife, Barbara, that her infant son looked like he was squinting all the time and wanted to name him “Squinty,” but Barbara thought that would be undignified and they finally compromised on “Quincy” as his nickname.

5-What was historically significant about Queen Elizabeth, II’s coronation?

She was the first monarch of England to wear a miniskirt to her coronation.

6-Why did King Edward VIII’s reign not even last a full year?

He decided that he would rather be a jester than a king, but no one thought he was funny.

7-What event happened during King George III’s reign that changed his official title?

Unlike Edward VIII, George III was a really funny guy, so he changed his official title to King Jester.

8-What British figure was known as “The Iron Lady”?

Benny Hill.

9-What did Joe Biden do before getting into politics?

He was the founder of Joe’s Crab Shack.

10-What did Boris Johnson do before becoming Prime Minister?

He was a hair stylist best known for his work with with Martin Gore of the rock group Depeche Mode.
