We can reveal the Grand Old Duke of York, who claimed to have ten thousand men, who he marched up to the top of the hill and then in a surprise military move, marched back down again, lied about the size of his battalion.

As opposed to the ten grand of troops, it was revealed he actually had a Sherpa and a goat with a wooden leg.

The claims that when they were up, they were up were subsequently proved to be unreliable gossip, and the same was said for when they were down. However, the court heard that when they were half way up they were neither up nor down. This matter was the only aquittal in his trial.

Make Ed Parnell's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
