Yes, I will participate in the bad joke about where Richard III was parked. I remember my father’s friend and colleague Professor John Shorter was complaining about having to park in a multi-story car park in Hull.
At least it wasn’t a multi-story parked on top of King Richard.
A couple of silly signs from Facebook.
Inquiring minds want to know. What’s the penalty for burying a dead monarch?
OK, who IS responsible?
Richard is pulled out of the grave and The Constable wants to fine him for loitering. “Do you know who I am?”
” Sorry, sir. You look like a cut up bag of bones to me.”
“I’ll have your head.”
“Come along quietly sir.”
When Richard is pulled out of the ground, he sees a group of people from the Indian Subcontinent. The King is staring.
“Where am I?” King Richard mutters.
