On this day in 1540 AD...
Henry VIII of England annuls his marriage to his fourth wife, Anne of Cleves.
Dammit! I'm only up to episode 304 of The Tudors and now I know how the season ends.
History should come with "spoiler alerts".
And when is that crazy-eyed Johnathan Rhys Meyers gonna put on the fat suit and carry around a turkey leg?!
Sure, maybe that song is less than historically accurate. But, are you telling me Showtime's playing fast & loose with facts? They're cable, for God's sake! And cable you have to pay for, too. That should mean something.
If movies have taught me anything- it's this: Henry the VIII was a big man. Charles Laughton doesn't play you in a movie if you're some skinny dude.
Check out the pic above: Henry's clearly holding a croissant in his right hand. (He was king of France at one point, too, right? I have to admit sometimes I drift in and out of the episodes).
Or maybe it's a rolled-up pancake. The point is: the guy liked to eat.
This is no way to win an Emmy, Mr. Meyers.
Actually... what the hell is Henry the VIII holding in his right hand?
