And So Farewell

Konspiracies

And so farewell Barbara Windsor.
You were landlady at the Old Vic.
Get out of my pub, that was your catchphrase,
A packet of Smokey Bacon crisps does not qualify,
As a substantial meal.
You were in a series of Carry On films, it says here.
Having watched a few now, I think they should be banned
Immediately, if not sooner.
They make no sense.
Why, when a lady is walking,
Is there always a man playing a saxophone nearby.
Be realistic, what are the chances of that happening?

Is offensive to both feminists, and to a lesser extent, bellringers.

"Well, I've had no complaints so far."

And why does everyone say
“Oooo, Matron!” All the time?
I think we should be told.
