Hmm, this looks like a job for Captain Jack!

“Quarter of Brits think Churchill was myth: poll

Britons are losing their grip on reality, according to a poll out Monday which showed that nearly a quarter think Winston Churchill was a myth while the majority reckon Sherlock Holmes was real.”

Well who doesn’t prefer a drug addicted violinist to a warmongering Sunday painter?

“The survey found that 47 percent thought the 12th century English king Richard the Lionheart was a myth.”

Hey, but he was gay — just like Elton John! Can we have a recount?

“And 23 percent thought World War II prime minister Churchill was made up. The same percentage thought Crimean War nurse Florence Nightingale did not actually exist.”

Really? What did they think of Mary Poppins?

“Three percent thought Charles Dickens, one of Britain’s most famous writers, is a work of fiction himself.”

The

of his day, no doubt.

“Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi and Battle of Waterloo victor the Duke of Wellington also appeared in the top 10 of people thought to be myths.”

Well Gandhi was clearly invented by Richard Attenborough. And the Duke of Wellington is a statue owned by Vesper Lynd.

“Meanwhile, 58 percent thought Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s fictional detective Holmes actually existed; 33 percent thought the same of W. E. Johns’ fictional pilot and adventurer Biggles.

UKTV Gold television surveyed 3,000 people.”

Well after that there’s nothing left to say but —

“All bound for Mu Mu Land
All bound for Mu Mu Land
(hey)
(hey hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified!)
(hey hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land

They’re Justified, and they’re Ancient,
And they like to roam the land.
(just roll it from the top)
They’re Justified, and they’re Ancient,
I hope you understand.
(to the bridge, to the bridge, to the bridge now)
They called me up in Tennessee
They said “Tammy, stand by the JAMs”
But if you don’t like what they’re going to do,
You better not stop them ’cause they’re coming through
(bring the beat back)

(Hey hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified!)
(Hey hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified!)

Mu Mu Land
Mu Mu Land
All bound for Mu Mu Land

They’re Justified, and they’re Ancient,
And they drive an ice cream van.
(just roll it from the top)
They’re Justified and they’re Ancient,
With still no master plan.
(to the bridge, to the bridge, to the bridge now)
The last train left an hour ago,
They were singing “All aboard”
All bound for Mu Mu Land,
Then someone starting screaming “Turn up the Strobe”
(bring the beat back)

(Hey hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified!)
(Hey hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land (ancients of mu mu)

Rap:
Justified and Ancient, Ancient and a-justified,
Rocking to the rhythm in their ice-cream van
with the plan and the key to
enter into Mu Mu
Vibes from the tribes of the JAMs.

I know where the beat is at,
‘cos I know what time it is.
Bring home a dime,
Make mine a “99”

New style, meanwhile, always on a mission while
Fishing in the rivers of life
Fishing in the rivers of life (hoi!)
Fishing in the rivers of life (hoi!)
Fishing in the rivers
Fishing in the rivers
Fishing in the rivers of life (hoi!)

Voo-va-voolie
Za-shi-va-zom
Voo-va-voolie

(Hey hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified!)

All bound for Mu Mu Land (justified!)

All bound for Mu Mu Land

Mu Mu Land (ancients of mu mu)
All bound for Mu Mu Land
