The BBC takes on Christopher Columbus, hilarity ensues

Happy Columbus Day!

Today, we celebrate Christopher Columbus, a man who didn't find America, didn't find a shortcut to India, didn't discover the world was round (he thought it was pear-shaped) and did possibly bring syphilis to Europe.

Again, happy Columbus Day!

The BBC children's series Horrible Histories has a wonderful video about him that you can watch above. Enjoy!

• Joe Grace is a writer and journalist who lives in Chicago with his wife. He once thought he discovered that his cat was a vampire. Like Columbus, he – too – was wrong. I'm always looking for fun videos to share at Going For Gusto. If you see one, post the link on the Going for Gusto Facebook page and I'll be sure to credit you.
