You know how sometimes you suddenly realise you’ve been missing something that everyone else just took for granted? I never realised until yesterday that the reason George Bush is nicknamed “Dubya” is because it’s a skit on his middle initial, “W”. I just assumed it was some crayzee American nickname, or something. I’ll get me coat.
In other news, I’ve just learned that Apollo from Battlestar Galactica had a recurring role as “Archie” on Horatio Hornblower. This is so inherently unlikely that it’s as if different worlds are colliding in my brain, but it’s true. Weirder still, he was in Peak Practice.
So, is there anything else I should be told before I’m allowed to re-enter polite society?
