A fact about tonsillitis…

The first man to contract tonsillitis was wealthy industrialist Sir Jonathan Tonsil in 1765.

At the time, he claimed it had developed as a result of his hobby, which was to indulge in roaring matches with his faithful lion companion, Griffin.

However, on his deathbed, Sir Jonathan changed his story, confessing that he had in fact contracted the disease after committing an act of oral relief on the beast as it slept.
