today i learned – sun 17th sept 2017

this one is slightly late today … had a super lazy sunday of formula one and tellyvision box ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

despite this super chill day, i managed to learn something about one of the great shows from my childhood ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

#tdil the little car โ€˜brumโ€™ was so called because he was a brummie ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

so, for those of you who arenโ€™t part of the 90โ€™s fam ๐Ÿ‘Š – brum was a show that ran between โ€˜91 and โ€˜02, that consisted of a tiny car from the 1920โ€™s constantly escaping a museum to explore the great city of birmingham ๐Ÿš—.

as a lover of both cars and brummies #backtomyroots, brum is literally my perfect tellybox show ๐Ÿ“บ … like, it just doesnโ€™t get better than that ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป … i actually quite miss brum (i just hadnโ€™t realised until right now ๐Ÿ˜‚).

anyway, back to the fact! i was always under the impression that brum was named โ€˜brumโ€™ due to him being a car and cars saying โ€œbrum brumโ€. turns out that i was only 50% correct.

part of the reason that brum was given his name was due to him living in a museum in birmingham ๐Ÿ˜ brum was totally a brummie ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป.

you know, after writing this, it has occurred to me how much sense this fact makes ๐Ÿ™ˆ … i think the true fact of the matter here is that i was too young to actually realise brum was filmed in brumland ๐Ÿ˜‚ had i known that, iโ€™d have possibly guessed this fact sooner ๐Ÿ˜•

oh well, i guess itโ€™s been a while since we had a post that was complete drivel … so this comes as a welcome change ๐Ÿ˜… – tomorrow we shall return to hardcore actual facts! ๐Ÿค“ #weprobablywont

anyway, i think thatโ€™s enough from me today ๐Ÿ™ƒ

iโ€™m out โœŒ๐Ÿป #tdil


i literally donโ€™t even know what to say about this one ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป if youโ€™d like to read something actually educational, you just need to go ->here<-
