Today’s little-known historical fact

Everyone knows about William Tell’s accomplishments as an archer. However, historians have recently learned that in addition to archery, Tell also excelled at bowling, a sport he participated in regularly with his wife and children. Sadly, all the league records have been lost, so we’ll never know for whom the Tells bowled.

    I think that’s what they call “a groaner”. I think that because I actually groaned!

    The better a joke, the louder and longer the laughter. The better the pun, the louder and longer the GROAN!
    Anita keeps asking me what I am still groaning about a day after reading this. She thought I hurt myself landscaping! 😂

    I researched this once, and that league was sponsored only by the bowling alley, which comped all of the teams.. So do not ask for whom the Tells bowled. They bowled for free.

      That was brilliant!!

    Actually, I heard they played in an Asian village which didn’t allow alcohol. Of course, the losers still bought a round for the winners. So, ask not for whom the Tells bowled, they bowled for tea.
    Try Laughter. See what happens
