Discovery of the day…

As a life-long fan of Mr Spike Milligan I was delighted when I stumbled across this advert he placed in the Private Eye many years ago:

 

“Spike Milligan seeks rich, well-insured widow
– intention, murder.”

According to the former editor of the Private Eye’s small ads he received ‘about 15 replies’.

I discovered this gem from a fantastic website called Letters of Note. Check it out, it’s one of my favourite blogs.
