(For your amusement)

From ‘Pass the Port’ – my recently acquired book of after-dinner stories:

booksOn the occasion I when I made my last speech a young lady came up to me and said: “I enjoyed your speech sumptuously.”

“Thank you very much.”

She went on: “You ought to have your speeches published.”

In as self-deprecating a manner as possible I said, “Well, perhaps I will have them published posthumously.”

“Oh yes, I should,” she answered, “and the sooner the better.”

Be blessed, be a blessing (not just posthumously)
