In a visit to a waxworks in London, a man was spotted acting strangely talking to customers claiming he knew some of the historical characters that were wax dummies even although they had died hundreds of years ago.

I approached him and asked him if he would like to go for a cup of tea. He agreed and we proceeded to the tearoom. I ordered a cup of tea and a sandwich but strangely he did not want anything to eat or drink.

He was in his late forties dressed in a smart Saville Row suit with a gold ring on his finger with the symbol of a serpent on it. He claimed his name was Douglas but that I might know him as Count St Germain he reiterated that he personally knew characters from the past including Mozart & Casanova.

All of a sudden he stood up and said he had to go.

I thought he was a bit of an eccentric and thought no more of it until I returned home. I done a search on the internet for Count St Germain and was surprised at the amount of information about a man who claimed to be immortal. Records show he was born around the late 1600's although some believe his longevity reaches back to the time of Christ.

I visited the British Museum to see if I could find out more about this strange character and came across a book hundreds of years old with a picture of Count St Germain.

I was amazed to see on his finger a gold ring with the symbol of a serpent. Is it possible that this man has achieved Immortality.

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