The two men in the Glasgow pub had been shattered
by the sudden death of a friend and workmate. The more they drank to his
memory, the more maudlin they became, and one of them suggested calling on the
widow. By then, they had had a drink too many but off they went to the house.
The widow was a little surprised by their visit but asked them inside where
they both became tongue tied. To ease the strain the widow asked "Wad ye like
fir ti see him?"
It was the last thing they wanted but they didn't
know how to refuse, and found themselves ben the house looking at their old
friend lying on the bed in a coffin. Searching for something to say, one of
them burst out with "My isna he awfie sunburnt!"
"Ay" agreed the widow "That last wee holiday
he haed at Rothesay did him the pouer o Guid."
