Ancient Texts

Ah Madonna. She keeps the gays quiet.

But exactly how old is our claw-handed harridan of pop? Rumours are flying that Dame Madge is about to get a telegram from the Queen, as one does on one's hundredth birthday. And that her insistence on playing Eva Peron was because she so clearly remembered those events in 1945.

But no. While Madonna looks ageless and deathless, she is a lot older than that. Here's a scene from the Bayeax Tapestry, circa 1066AD.

Well. Madonna DOES keep the gays quiet

You know, in retrospect, we now vividly remember seeing a gargoyle on Peterborough Cathedral decked out in a cowboy hat and some fingerless lace gloves...


(Larks! Why not make your own tapestry? And then tell us about it!)

This is [verily] the coolest [pointless] tool the web has ever offered! Thank you!

Aren't the gays referred to in the tapestry, Madonna's dance crew that was so vividly portrayed in her lovely rock-u-mentary?

Well, I heard a theory that Dame Vera Lynn is an alternative cloned version of Madge, in which the anti-aging subroutines went a bit awry...

Thanks for that morning diversion. Just frittered away an hour on it.

Is that the ancient version of her tour 'The Girlie Show'?

Lee, sweetheart, that's fabulous. I want one!

(now, if only I had a spare lifetime to learn to use the damn software...."Oi! Internski! come here and learnt his will you?"

I wish).
