Family history

Overheard (allegedly) by Flann O’Brien:

“D’you know, Geoffrey, only last night I learnt many interesting things about my family. D’you know that my great-grandfather was killed at Waterloo?”

“Rayully, sweetness, which platform?”

The golden head was tossed in disdain.

“How ridiculous you are, Geoffrey. As if it mattered which platform.”
