scamming like a victorian

Let's start Monday off right with this how-to: The Real Victorian Hustle!


  1. How fascinating! I always find things like this so interesting! I remember reading an annotated kids version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame when I was younger which discussed Parisian begging tricks such as pretending to be lame or blind. More frightening are the rumours of people maiming themselves or family to better beg.

  2. I love love love Horrible Histories, Matthew Baynton is really funny!
    That was a particualry interesting episode, the soap trick is genius!
