Actually By The Daily Mash
Curator’s Comments: As Peabody’s Lament readers know, Mr Gove is a British MP and the Interior Secretary for Education who believes the television sitcom The Blackadder is ruining contemporary Britain’s understanding of World War I.
GOOD morning class. I’m Michael Gove: education secretary, next prime minister and the man who puts the Gove in government.
The Revolutionary War: Historians claim that Britain and America fought each other in this war, but that could never have happened because we’re both the goodies. Clearly some kind of administrative mistake.
World War Two: Evidence that the Soviet Union defeated the Nazis on the Eastern Front is obviously false, because they were Communists and only a nation built on free-market principles with privatised utilities could be successful.
Dunkirk: Revisionists have called this a British retreat, but actually it was more like an early D-Day but a little bit slower and slightly more backwards.
Italia ’90: BBC lies that Chris Waddle kicked a crucial penalty into the sky have been disproved by amateur historians on the Daily Telegraph’s comment desk, who uncovered new evidence that he buried it in the net and England beat Argentina in the final.
