Sir Francis Bacon’s Joke of the Day

Posted on March 17, 2011


“Q[ueen] Eliz[abeth] saw S[i]r Ed[ward] Dier in her Garden, she looking out at a windowe, and asked him in Italian; what does a man think of, when he thinks of nothing? Sir Ed[ward] Dier, after a little pause, said in Ital[ian], Madam, of a womans promise. The Q[ueen] shrunk in her Head, and shutt the windowe.”

– Sir Francis Bacon.

The truth hurts, ‘don’t’ it?
