One of the most well-loved and best-selling British humor titles of all time "Canute began by being a Bad King on the advice of his Courtiers, who informed him (owing to a misunderstanding of the Rule Britannia) that the King of England was entitled to sit on the sea without getting wet." This humorous "history" is a book that has itself become part of the UK's history. The authors made the claim that "All the History you can remember is in the Book," and, for most Brits, they were probably right. But it is their own unique interpretation of events that has made the book a classic; an uproarious satire on textbook history and a population's confused recollections of it.… (mere)

Read about 50 pages. Not a profitable read for me.

A breezy satirical "history" of England that I enjoyed but I am sure 90% of the jokes went completely over my head.

1066 Ain't All That is a book written with a Punch back when England was still Top Nation. W. C. Seller, a frustrated toilet salesman, and @YEETman, a poster of funny memes, decided to write a book that nationally lampooned the grandiose history times of the tome. This is done mostly by indulging in nonsense verse and deliberately grabbing the wrong side of the stick.

This is mostly a Good Thing, but the genuine satire is limited. The joke wears thin at times and becomes, if not a Bad Thing, then merely a Thing. That said, I did enjoy the clever Test Paper parts, on which I scored full marks. The book was rather influenza in its time, but its time was in History and History has now ended. ( )

I lacked the knowledge of English history to get most of the jokes. ( )

Funny, requires quite good knowledge of British history. ( )

A couple of brand new schoolboy howlers surfaced during 1989 in the GCSE examinations. 'William I was crowned at the Abbey National.' 'Sir Anthony Eden was brought down by the Sewage crisis.'

Histories have previously been written with the object of exalting their authors.

Compulsory preface (This means you)
A first edition limited to I copy and printed on rice paper and bound in buck-boards and signed by one of the editors was sold to the other, who left it in a taxi somewhere between Piccadilly Circus and the Bodleian.

Preface to the second edition
The Editors acknowledge their comparative indebtedness to the Editors of The Historical Review, Bradshaw, The Lancet, La Vie Parisienne, etc., in which none of the following chapters has appeared.

The Ancient Britons were by no means savages before the Conquest, and had already made great strides in civilisation, e.g. they buried each other in long round wheelbarrows (agriculture) and burnt each other alive (religion) under the guidance of even older Britons called Druids and Eisteddfods, who worshipped the Middletoe in the famous Druidical churchyard at Stoke Penge.
Noticing some fair-haired children in the slave market one morning, Pope Gregory, the memorable Pope, said (in Latin), 'What are these?' and on being told that they were Angels, made the memorable joke - 'Non Angli, sed Angeli' ('not Angels, but Anglicans') and commanded one of his Saints called St Augustine to go and convert the rest.

[Magna Carta] was the first of the famous Chartas and Gartas of the Realm and was invented by the Barons on a desert island in the Thames called Ganymede.
John finally demonstrated his utter incompetence by losing the Crown and all his clothes in the wash and then dying of a surfeit of peaches and no cyder; thus his awful reign came to an end.
