Someone posted this on Sharon Kay Penman's Facebook page yesterday.  Too good not to share: Richard III's Attempt to Set History Right.

I don't dare go back to supersizers. Now that it's Friday and I'm home I have a Chadwick to read.

These are great!!!!!  My favorite I think was the Blackbeard the Pirate song, shades of Gilbert and Sullivan.

Oh, Vicky -- I promise -- watching these are so much more fun than grocery shopping. Just tell yourself, as I did...over...and over...and over, that these are educational and enlightening -- you're improving your mind!!

Deb-thanks for posting this.  I have spent the last 2 days so sick I could barely move out of bed but when I woke up this morning at 4:30 after being asleep for 17 hours, Richard III redeeming himself really cheered me up.  I watched those stupid things for 2 hours!

It went somethng like "ha ha ha, ow my chest!  ha ha ha owwwww"

LOL! Sorry you've been sick, Holly -- hope you feel better soon (but in the meantime, being sick in bed is a good excuse to watch these clips!)
