Embedded text or transcriptThe recent award to Mr Denis Healey of Aachen's Joker Medal for displaying 'a sense of humour in the course of duty was a happy international event
To add still further to the gaiety of nations why not have more of these awards - like say the Grand Cross Knight of the Order of the Newt for displaying 'a sense of fatigue in the course of duty'...
or, the Most Honourable Order of the Punchilious Parrot for displaying 'a sense of duty in the course of duty'...
according to official advice from Lagos, Anguilla, Saigon, Athens, Washington, etc.
Not to mention the B.E.M.(Bug-Eyed Monster) for Services to Science Fiction...
and the most distinguished Order of the Bird, for displaying 'a sense of direction in the course of yacht racing'..
and certainly a Bigots' Bowler for displaying 'a nonsense in the course of advancing in personal ambition'...
