1 What tax did Henry VIII introduce in 1535? Henry decided to put a very heavy tax on any family that named their child Henry. His goal was to have no competition for his name. The cost was equivalent to 1000 US dollars. As this was an astronomical amount at the time the name was never used again.
2 Who entered a contest for his own lookalike, and came third? That would be Paul McCartney. He entered a contest just a couple of years ago. The other contestants were much younger . The judges were not in touch with his current looks. (Silly judges)
3 What sort of creature is a mountain chicken? A mountain chicken is a chicken that can climb mountains and does not get harmed by the very thin air. The strange thing about them is that they lay square eggs. (ouch)
