  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC. That's 'Before Computers'. Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all... Archbishop Temple's School.




    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock 'n' Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during 'The Cold War'...and then




    I became 'a family'. Which meant that I sort of missed the 'swinging sixties', but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.




    During the 'Thatcher Years' I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 54 years of happy marriage.

Fathered by the Führer ?

Posted by Big John on February 24, 2012

A popular song mocking the Nazi leaders during World War II went something like this …

“Hitler, has only got one ball,
Goering, has two but very small,
Himmler has something simmler,
but poor old Goebbels has no balls at all”.

Well, if it was true what they sang about old Adolf, he seems to have put that one testicle to good use by fathering a child with a teenage mademoiselle when serving in the German army during World War I.

It would seem that the future leader of the Third Reich met this young woman when she was cutting hay, and they later “made hay” together, which resulted in baby Jean-Marie.

There seems to be some evidence to support this story, and photographs show a strong family resemblance, but I’m not so sure. In fact, I’ll go along with the subject of the song and say that it’s probably …

… a load of old ‘cobblers’ !

  1. Well that horrible little mustache looks genetic, but that is about it. If I were Jean-Marie, I would hide the fact that I may have been the devil’s spawn. Nothing to brag about here!

    Remember we have Photoshop these days. My father had a saying “You cannot believe all you read, or half you see”!
    Which half do I believe?
