Barry Cryer's Favourite Thora Hird Joke

Thora was wonderful!

She had a birthday party very late in life. She was in a wheelchair and was wheeled in and loudly said to me, "I am not going to talk about that weekend in Grimsby - for which I paid, incidentally!"

And I said, "Self, self, self. Typical you."

People were thinking, "Who is that awful man?" Oh, we loved it!
