Professor Cox’s Did You Know This: Why Do We The Unemployed Celebrate The Longest Day At Stonehenge?

Hello to my devoted socially distancing Coxettes, it’s your gorgeous (still Covid-19 free) leader Prof Brian Cox here, and i’m back answering your (almost) scientific questions…

I’m answering this one a few days early as I want to spend the rest of the week and weekend topping up my beautiful tan. Saturday will, as you probably know, be “the World’s Longest Day” and all over the globe people of all religions will be celebrating, but the question i’ve been asked is “why is Stonehenge the most popular place that dwarves, witches and the unemployed flock to dance naked at sunrise on June 21st, or is it the 20th? And what’s with these old stones anyway, do they have any use?”

You are correct that Stonehenge is apparently the most popular destination, but many other sites attract such low life on the same day, including our very own Hammerite standing stones. Stonehenge actually draws the most people due to the parking, abundance of toilets and the chance to get on TV dancing with gay abandon.

The question of what is the purpose of Stonehenge is one that’s been open to debate for many centuries… Some say it was a burial site, a place of worship or perhaps even an ancient “rock themed” funfair. I myself am inclined to believe it was once a cafe & service station for cave men & women due to the fact it was sited close to the A303, itself an ancient trading route between Exeter and Belgium. This would also account for the fact there’s still a visitors centre on the site. I believe the longest day would have been significant because the cafe would have stayed open late (opening times would likely have been at sunrise to sunset) and they probably also had some good offers on, perhaps 10% off a bison burger or BOGOF on animal furs and dinosaur eggs (good for omelates)…

So there you go, another Did You Know This Longest Day fact ticked off for twelve months. I’m off to do a zoom call with HRH The Queen as she no doubt wants to bitch about some of the wayward members of her family. Keep safe, keep well, Prof Brian Cox.

Get Fit With Hit & Knit (On-Line) Starting Next Week

Starting on Monday evening at around 7.30 (via Zoom if she can get her broadband working), ex- Olympic athlete and holistic horse-whisperer Clare Balding will be trying to resurrect her famed Hit & Knit course by taking it online. As you’ll probably have read in the press her (now ex-) friends Michael McIntyre and Germaine Greer unfortunately made a pigs ear of running the courses a few years back and so Clare (currently furlonged due to Covid) is in future going to run the courses herself from her kitchen one evening per week, hopefully for three months. The unique course she invented combines the mental & physical riguers of knitting with the keep-fit pummelling of boxing. She took inspiration from the Rocky films and used it to successfully train EasyJet crews and the staff of a Greggs somewhere. Clare’s catchy slogan is “before you can say Hit One, Purl One you’ll have made yourself a matching scarf, hat and gloves and be able to punch well above your weight. You’ll probably end up as a new you!” And as it’s now online all ages are welcome with the whole online course only costing £3,499. Chegwins Gym are honoured that Clare is renting our zoom “channel” to host the courses. See you next week. Rod S. Welling, manager, Chegwins Gym.
