Everyone knows the famous Spitting Image Sketch.
Thatcher having dinner with her cabinet.
What would madam like?
And the vegetables?
They'll have the same.
Except I've heard this repeated atleast a half dozen times by people who believe it to be true. It shows one to be a total ignoramous, Thatcher was famously for all her steel feminine and charming in person. And had no sense of humour.
In a previous job our CEO who was a total prick stated this sketch as a factual example at our annual conference. So are there any other famous sketches jokes out there masquerading as the truth?
