On the headstone of anarchic, Irish, Australian, Indian, British, Comedian, and famous Goon , Spike Milligan who died aged 83 in February 2002. At his grave in St Thomas’s Churchyard in Winchelsea, East Sussex. Are written the words, “Duirt me leat go raibh me breoite”, which is Irish gaelic for “I told you I was ill.” Which goes to show that if you hold out long enough eventually you get the last Laugh.
I was originally going to post this as a random quote but decided it deserved its own post, in the full knowledge that Spike would most likely have called me the same thing he once called Prince Charles, I.e. a grovelling little B#$/#rd.
