Hereford Cathedral, Hereford
When The Dean Of Hereford Read His Prayers On Horseback
Since the sixteenth century, regular processions have been organized around Hereford Cathedral to mark holy occasions. For one such occasion in the 1960s, the Dean of Hereford, Robert Price, decided that, rather than walk on foot like lowlier canons, he would ride on horseback so that he might more easily be seen reading from his prayer book.  As Stephen Pile recalls in his Book of Heroic Failures, "The proud cleric mounted his mare, opened his book and took to the streets. His reading was at an early stage when a stallion broke loose, saw his mare and mounted her.  The dean was trapped, read practically nothing and swore he would never ride in a procession again."

When An Ambitious Actress Propositioned Irving Mansfield
An aspiring nymphette, eager to appear on Talent Scouts, sent producer Irving Mansfield a saucy photograph with a provocative note: "I'll do anything to get on your show—and when I say anything, I mean anything."  Unfortunately for the young nymphette, the letter was found not by Mansfield, but by his wife, the novelist Jacqueline Susann.  "I am Mrs. Mansfield," she replied, "and I do everything for my husband—and when I say everything, I mean everything!"  * This story is also told of Sinclair Lewis and Dorothy Thompson.  [Susann herself once hosted two game shows: "Your Surprise Store" and "Ring the Bell".]

Charles G. D. Roberts' Failed Seduction
The Canadian poet Sir Charles G. D. Roberts was famed for his sexual appetite. On one occasion, at a meeting of the Canadian Authors' Association, he lured author Kathleen Strange to his hotel room, promising to show her photographs from his bohemian days on the Continent.  "He passed her a series of pictures showing himself and Isadora Duncan in Grecian costume, though in less and less of it with each snapshot," reports Douglas Fetherling in the Broadview Book of Canadian Anecdotes. "The final print—depicting him in puris naturalibus—was accompanied by 'a short struggle' that ended in a slap across his face. Strange went on to say that Sir Charles pointedly ignored her at the next several CAA conventions until, chancing upon her alone in ...

When PETA Translated a Slogan Into Spanish
In 2003, members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) in Palm Springs, Florida translated one of their slogans into Spanish – and ended up promoting orgasms.

Peggy Eaton - Chaste As A Virgin
During Andrew Jackson's first term, his friendship with Peggy Eaton, the attractive wife of Jackson's secretary of war, aroused considerable controversy. Mrs. Eaton enjoyed a reputation for remarkable lubricity which her marriage to John Eaton did little to change; indeed, Washington ladies boycotted receptions at which she was present and clergymen denounced her in public.  Jackson once called two such ministers into a cabinet meeting to discuss the issue. The clergymen acknowledged that there was little concrete evidence of improper behavior on the part of John Eaton. "Nor Mrs. Eaton, either!" the president angrily declared. "I would prefer not to venture an opinion on that point," one clergyman replied. "She's as chaste as a virgin!" Jackson snapped.  Some time later, ...

The Secret To Jack Lalanne's Longevity
One day in 2003, Jack LaLanne was visited at home by "Man Show" host Adam Corolla. Though he was 88 years old, LaLanne appeared to be in better health than his famous beer-swilling guest. "How do you do it?" Corolla asked. Lalanne's reply? "Impure thoughts and dirty girls!"  LaLanne later made a blended beverage of celery, carrots, and other vegetables. Corolla followed with a blended beverage of his own—comprising a beef & cheese burrito, a donut, beer, a cheeseburger, more beer, and some grape pop. And, yes, he drank it. [LaLanne died on January 23, 2011, aged 96.]

Kiefer Sutherland Wins A Golden Globe - "I Now Know What Charlie Meant"
At the 59th Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2002, Kiefer Sutherland was named best actor in a dramatic television series for his role in the critically acclaimed 24.  His good friend (and fellow "brat pack" member) Charlie Sheen, having been similarly honored for his role on Spin City, had described his own excitement while receiving his award...  "I now know what Charlie meant," Sutherland declared, taking the podium. "I've just lost all feeling in my lower half."  Sutherland's comment elicited great gusts of knowing laughter; Sheen first gained notoriety for claiming to have slept with thousands of prostitutes. Among the captions accompanying his Golden Globe pics? "Sheen fondles yet another fake globe!"
