Et helt nytt bilde av et feil flagg jeg fant denne uka. Black Monday, på HBO.

Morecambe/Morecombe?

I min tidslinje het denne engelske duoen alltid Morecombe And Wise. Nå er det MorecAmbe som er det riktige. Jeg er ikke den eneste som husker dette, for det finnes et utall sider som har den gamle stavemåten. Bare se selv!

"The statue he produced was a larger-than-life sculpture of the comedy duo Eric Morecombe and Ernie Wise."

Nok et bevis ...

På at Dolly, kjæresten til Jaws i James Bond-filmen faktisk hadde tannregulering. Bare se her: 

Kiel reprised the role of Jaws in the 1979 film Moonraker. The film culminated with Jaws changing sides and joining forces with Bond to save the world. It also saw romance blossom between Jaws and Dolly, a small, pig-tailed blonde with braces, comically played by Blanch Ravalec.

 

Blonde with braces. Blondine med tannregulering. Det kan vel ikke sies klarere enn det? Hele artikkelen ligger under her.

Teach/Thatch/Blackbeard

En sak på engelsk denne gangen, mest fordi jeg la den ut på en internasjonal Facebook-side. Det handler om piraten Blackbeard:

I've always known the Pirate Blackbeard as Edward Teach. In every book, every movie, everywhere. But while watching the series on Netflix about the pirate age, everyone calles him Thatch! WTF? I have never heard that name. Seems he has two names now?
 
"Edward Teach (alternatively spelled Edward Thatch, c. 1680 – 22 November 1718), better known as Blackbeard, was an English pirate who operated around the West Indies and the eastern coast of Britain's North American colonies."
