  1. I loved learning about the first two and that Rick Astley one never fails to make me laugh!

  2. These are hilarious! It reminds of War of the Worlds airing on the radio and confusing people into thinking we were actually being invaded by Martians. LOL!! Thank you for sharing and hosting #FridayFrivolity!

    1. I read about a similar instance in the UK recently, from the 1920s. They reported that the Soviets had captured London as part of a drama and sparked a big panic! x

  3. These are so fun! Oh my goodness, imagining the stockings... ;P And now I'm going to have that song stuck in my head, of course.......

    1. I'd like to think I wouldn't have fallen for it... but I bet I'd have been there, whipping off my stockings to try it! x


I love to hear from you, so please don't be shy!
