Fresh Thoughts #32: The Queen's Wit

Queen Elizabeth II

My mum's Irish.

And like many old societies, the Irish have strong opinions about death.

If you've been to an Irish wake, you'll know you're as likely to hear laughter as crying.

Joking is a rite of passage.

Over the last week, I've been drawn to humorous anecdotes rather than sombre end-of-an-era ones.

This is the funniest story I've heard about the queen in the past few days.
