Odd Historical Facts Make Funny Inspirational Posters

Someone suggested I tweet historical facts, because my book is an historical mystery. Not a bad idea, I thought.

That was until I started digging for said facts. Most are, well, boring.

Some are just plain weird.

Sure, I could tweet them, but I thought it would be more fun to display them as if they are inspirational posters, with serious looking pictures and the facts where you’d normally find “believe in yourself” type encouragement. So that’s what I did.

All images are from Pixabay.com, and the facts are from list25.com, buzzfeed, and sotruefacts.com.

  3. Ha! I think ‘Napoleon was once attacked by rabbits’ has a definite place in the breakroom of my work. We can all just look at it and nod knowingly to each other, like, ‘what sage advice’. 🙂
