To continue on the cheery subject of funerals, it is a fact that the Scots have a worldwide reputation for being the only race that can generate humour from such occasions.
A couple of my favourites:
Conversation overheard at the graveside: "It came as a terrible shock ....... I thought he died years ago!"
And another: "He didn't die of anything really; he was a hypochondriac !"
I'm sure there are plenty more you can add.
