Humorous History

My favorite section of Humorous History was about King Henry VIII of England.

He had three “Grooms of Stool” that were responsible for wiping his bottom.  This job was not all bad, because he rewarded his “Grooms of Stool” with money, land, and official titles.

In spite of all that, wiping a grown man’s butt sounds like a horrible job.

  1. It does sound kind of gross, but nurses do it all the time. And, in this case, it sounds like you got paid quite a bit for doing about 10 minutes of work a day. Looking at it that way, it probably wasn’t all that bad.
