If at the start of the Premier League season, someone had told you that Chelsea would fail to defend their title, and on the day when the new champions were officially confirmed, Chelsea fans would be chanting the name of the new champions, it would have seemed unbelievable.
And yet, as has been well reported, Leicester City went on to become the 2015-16 Premier League champions, despite being initially priced at an incredible 5000-1! To put that into perspective, here are a selection of other bets which were judged more likely to happen than Leicester winning the Premier League...
25-1 – Alien life to be proven to exist by the end of 2016
100-1 – Bruce Forsyth to be the next Doctor Who
175-1 – Prince Harry to marry Cheryl Cole
200-1 – David Beckham to be the next James Bond

Another batch of silly football quotes to celebrate the end of the season.
|"Hooray!" The crowd celebrates the news that more funny|
football quotes are to appear on the Charles Fudgemuffin blog.
1) “West Brom have won a few late points. Do those points help or hinder them? I think they help them.”
2) “It's Ipswich 0 Liverpool 2, and if that's the way the score stays then you've got to fancy Liverpool to win.”
3) “The one thing that Cristiano Ronaldo has is pace, quick feet and a great eye for goal.”
…Chris Waddle (I think that's three things, Chris)

Stranger than fiction...
|The tropical island of Koh Phangan. It's okay, I suppose.|
'True Or False: Ulaanbaatar is the capital of Mongolia?'
Instead, this is a daft 'true or false' quiz about a few random insignificant things which happened while I was on holiday on Koh Phangan (the inspiration for Ko Pagna in the 'How To Save The World' books).
None of the following events are world-shatteringly exciting, in fact they're all really minor incidents, but I found them a little weird, so have a read of the following happenings and see if you can guess which ones really happened and which are stories I've just made up.

Long winded waffle in place of a simple description.
|A cover up?|
Or 'Responsible discretion in the national interest..."
"Reponsible discretion exercised in the national interest to prevent unnecessary disclosure of eminently justifiable procedures in which untimely revelation would severely impair public confidence."
Or to put it simply ... a cover up!
More recently, the practise of using long winded mumbo jumbo to describe simple terms seems to have spread to the naming of job titles, and I featured a few of these silly job titles in a previous blog post.
