Tch! Is is just us, or is this week dragging something hellish? Never mind, grab a few minutes away from it all as you peruse these amazing facts about Thursday, July 29:
» It's 23 years to the day since Lady Diana Spencer donned a flouncy meringue to marry The Prince of Wales at St Paul's Cathedral in London. More than 700million people around the world tuned in. Eastenders scriptwriters take note: perhaps Fergie could perform a cameo and get hitched to Ian Beale.
» Anti-fur group PETA planned to take their campaign to the internet in 1998, only to find their domain name already taken up by the People for Eating Tasty Animals.
» A Welsh couple were given permission to marry at home, owing to the bride's agoraphobia. They planned to spend their honeymoon watching videos.
» Which of Claire Sweeney's assets would you reckon she'd be best having insured? We don't know either. But the smiley lass decided to have her knockers safeguarded for £5million in 2001 in preparation for abseiling down a 90ft building wearing just knickers and a bra.
» Happy fourth wedding anniversary to Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt, who in their vows promised to make banana milkshakes (Jennifer) and split the cost of the heating thermostat (Brad).

About Us

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses. We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
