Shakespear WTF?

History isn't what it used to be

According to QI, Nelson's famous last words were in fact "Drink, drink, fan, fan, rub, rub."


I can see why "Kiss me, Hardy", "Kismet, Hardy" and "I have done my duty" are much more well known. Though wrong. (Apparently, he was thirsty, hot and his chest hurt.)
