I was watching a (recorded) repeat of a Midsomer Murders last night, and Samantha Bond's character came out with a terrific line.
Her husband had died, and after the funeral, the villagers came up to her to give their respects, and to ask if it was still OK for the annual village fete to be held on her land.
"No. You'll have to find somewhere else to stick your maypole".
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.
The rest of us are a bit crap.
