News, but not the serious kind
Two, four, six, eight, who do we impersonate?
Not much, these days. Its heyday was the 1960s, when the Ford Motor Company manufactured a popular car model there.
Really? I didn’t know that!
You’ve never heard of the Maltese Falcon? What the hell do they teach you kids today, anyway?
So, is it famous for anything now apart from papal visits?
Yes. Malta boasts the world’s worst Michael Jackson impersonators. This only became evident recently, when La Toya Jackson visited to promote a hand cream and was confronted at every turn by folks claiming to be impersonating her dead brother.
And what’s the capital of Malta?
You mean like the cheese product?
Uh, yeah. Valletta, just like Velveeta….
Hey Blog Guy, I think you just made up one of these so-called facts!
Busted. Which one?
Who would go to Malta to promote hand cream?
