Wow, I almost missed this! How can that be?
Yes, it’s “Fibbing Friday”, held by our hostess, Di, of “Pensitivity101”
It’s Friday! And that means it’s time for another installment of Fibbing Friday. Di, over at pensitivity101 share hosting duties for this weekly challenge, and this week, it’s my turn!
In case your new here or just have trouble remembering these things, (Hey! Some of us aren’t as young as we used to be. Don’t judge!), here’s how it works:
- Answer the questions below as creatively as you desire in a post on your blog. Just make sure your answers bend, stretch, break, or just flat out ignore the truth. It is called Fibbing Friday, after all.
- Tag that post as “Fibbing Friday”.
- Link back to this post so others can enjoy your creativity. If you are on WordPress, pingbacks are enabled, or you can just leave a link to your post in the comments.
So, without further ado, here are this week’s questions:
- Why was Eric the Red called Eric the Red? (I won’t cheat and look this up), but, who is Eric The Red? Why wasn’t he Eric The Blue, perhaps Chartreuse? (I’d like the answer to this myself). 😉
- Why did Christopher Columbus sail west? If he chose to sail West, the ship would have hit sand and dirt.
- Who were the Vikings? A bunch of short brawny men who wore helmets with horns to appear taller then they were. I mean really, who would have taken them seriously if they stood 4 feet?
- What is a scullery maid? A maid who cleaned skulls, (whoops, Sculls with a “C”). I don’t have a clue… why don’t you have Eric the Red to give the answer to this one. 🤨
- What is a dumb waiter? A waiter who brought dinner and place settings to the master bedroom.
- How did British sailors earn the moniker, Limeys? It was better to not refer to them as Slimy… They’d make you walk the plank.
- How did U.S. troops earn the moniker, Yanks? Because “Tanks” sounded way too intimidating.
- What is borscht? I think… I know it has something to do with the Ukrainians. A type of sausage?
- Who were the Bolsheviks? The Kardashians’ second cousins removed.
- What was the original purpose of the Great Wall of China? To keep out the US manufactures away from learning how to make really cheap crap to seel to the US people.
