Oh, the humanity!

BBC: Cilla Black's funeral to feature song from Sir Cliff Richard

Hasn't her poor, bereaved family suffered enough already?

Having said that, I'm probably missing a golden opportunity to pop down there and play the Devil Woman Game.

Cashing in

I attended a former colleague's funeral service yesterday. Nice chap. He would have been amused to know that he was responsible for making me go to church. I sat right at the back and tried to ignore the vicar, who took advantage of his captive audience.

Half-way through the service, someone's mobile phone began to ring: [I fell into a burning] Ring of Fire by Johnny Cash. You couldn't make it up.

I'm sure my late colleague would have laughed his head off.
