A box-spring (or divan in the UK, where they don't use such common vulgarities as box) is a type of bed base.

1984 - Pop star Prince has a second penis surgically attached. Millions think he's a gimp. Millions more just think it is so he can go and fuck himself. A recent internet video proves this.
1985 - Cary Grant finds his bedside table has a small crack on one of the legs.
1994 - An Ace Of Base song is released. The subsequent decontamination process takes 15 years to complete.
1996 - Pop star Prince (or whatever the fuck he's called now) has a third penis surgically attached.
1997 - Prince succesfully sues his surgeon for giving him the penis of an impotent man, claiming it has given his other two penises "performance anxiety". Nobody knows what the fuck he's talking about. Again.
2005 - Steve Irwin kills a stingray in a boating accident while 5 times over the drink drive limit.
