Queen Elizabeth was visiting sick children in a Scottish hospital, and after performing her planned duties, she wandered off to other parts of the hospital. Walking into an unidentified ward, she went up to a patient in bed and asked him how he was doing. He replied:Reposted because I just discovered that January 25 is Burns Night.
"O, my luve is like a red, red rose,Finding the response somewhat inappropriate she wished him good day and moved down the ward to a room where another man was sitting quietly. In response to her inquiry, he began singing:
That's newly sprung in June.
O, my luve is like the melodie,
That's sweetly played in tune....."
"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,Somewhat baffled by this sequence of events she found a third room, where her greeting was met with:
And never brought to min' ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' lang syne ?"
"Wee, sleekit, cowrin', tim'rous beastie,She gave up, and left the ward. On her way out, she encountered the head nurse. "Is this the psychiatric ward?" she asked.
O, what a panic's in thy breastie ...."
"No, your majesty," the nurse replied. "It's......the Burns unit."
