From Marilyn to Shakespeare: how well do you know history’s most bungled quotes? | David Attenborough
Those of you who had “Sir David Attenborough has beef with Adelaide shopping center plaque” in your 2021 bingo playing cards will need to have finished a victory dance this week. An area conservationist recognised some “honeybee propaganda”, attributed to the legendary naturalist, on a plaque accompanying a Westfield Tea Tree Plaza mural and alerted the related authorities (i.e. Sir David himself).
The plaque has been finished away with, however lots extra misquotes and misattributions stay. If you’ve ever seen a brush-script quote adorning a black and white photograph, a painted sundown, or an embroidered sofa cushion and puzzled “Dangle on a minute …”, this quiz is for you. Final one to end will get their title hooked up to a Spider-Man quote on an inspirational $2 store fridge magnet.
