MAKES YOU SMILE

Back in the 1700s, Sir Henry Raeburn (a Scottish artist) painted a picture of a minister (Robert Walker) skating on Duddingston Loch.

When the architect was designing the Parliament Building, he decided to give each Parliament member a “thinking pod,” shaped like the skating minister.

Thus the building has these strange-looking pods sticking out from the back wall where the country’s leaders can sit and think.

Unfortunately, they’ve discovered that the pods leak and hundreds of thousands of pounds have been spent in making the skating-minister thinking pods leak proof.

I know this all sounds kind of crazy, but I’m telling you the absolute truth. Look it up if you don’t believe me 🙂

  1. I don’t get it. Those pods dont’ look anything like the picture. Do the people have to stand like him while they think?
