On This Day In History - 29 January

On This Day, the 29th of January 1820, King George III of Great Britain and Ireland, died.
George-The-Turd-Thrower enjoyed taking a dump on the throne and chucking it out the window at the commoners. He did this on instructions from the gorilla in the purple tutu. Yes, in case you had no doubt, George-Third-Of-His-Name was nutso-bonkers-crazy.
Although he did have the longest reign of any of his monarch'd predecessors.
King George III was the third British Monarch of the House of Hanover and was also King of Hanover at the same time. And, unlike the previous two Georges, he was actually born in England. He also spoke English, and Klingon when conversing with the tutu-clad gorilla, and never actually visited Hanover.
George III is best known for having many episodes of insanity. They took over his life in 1810, so much so, his son, the Prince of Wales took over running the country as Prince Regent. Upon the death of his father, the Prince Regent became King George IV.
Celebrity Birthdays
On This Day in 1945, a moustache was born. Not just any moustache, but THE moustache. Yes, I'm talking about the one super-glued to Tom Selleck's face. Happy Birthday, Magnum.
On This Day in 1954, Oprah Gail Winfrey is born.
Oprah went from poverty to becoming America's only female African-American billionaire. She is best known for her very popular talk show, cleverly titled, The Oprah Winfrey Show, which is the highest-rated television show of its kind in history.
