As Richard III’s reburial starts….
Back in February , the bones of Richard III were unearthed beneath a car park in Leicester. Here is a comic sketch I wrote at the time.
Scene: Opening the mail in Buckingham Palace.
Queen: Philip, one has a letter here from Leicester City Council.
Philip: Leicester? You still have some English subjects there? I thought they were all..
Queen: (cutting Philip off): Behave Philip you know how you upset the Chinese with your “slitty eyed” comment.
Philip: What do the blighters want?
Queen: Apparently, they’ve found the bones of Richard III and want to know whether we want them.
Philip: Richard the third? That’s rhyming slang for
Queen: … disinterred
Philip: Why would we want them? ( Corgis yapping)
Well, the dogs might like them.
Queen: One doesn’t feed ROYAL bones to the corgis.
