Grace : “ Rubba dub dub, Thanks for the grub, Yea God!” also “Buddha, Buddha thank you for the bread and budda.”
Delivered by a Catholic priest at 2 separate occasions.
His speeches and sermons where short, on point and often humorous.
He was quite a character having played professional ice hockey.
He later formed a hockey team of other priests called “The Flying Fathers” who played local teams and even the occasional NHL team at charity events. Biggest bunch of cheaters you ever saw. ( kind of like the “Harlem Globetrotters” of basketball fame. )

A Jacobite toast.

God bless the King! - I mean, the Faith's defender...
God bless - no harm in blessing? the pretender.
But who pretender is, and who is King...
God bless us all! That's quite another thing.

1977 RAF Marham - lunch for Her Majesty who was our Honorary Air Commodore for this, her silver jubilee year. Station Commander, Benny Jackson, gives the loyal toast " Ladies and gentlemen - the King/Queen". (/ = micro pause). He told me afterwards that he had been rehearsing those few words for weeks and could not think where the change came from. Although sadly no longer with us, he did make AVM, so not too much harm done!!

I remember the padre at Nortolt the night before the rugby world cup final 2003 finishing the grace with "and God bless Jonny Wilkinson's boot".

must have had a more direct line than most!
