For years, when male skeletons with signs of multiple blunt-force trauma were discovered in the backyards of English women whose husbands had disappeared ages ago under mysterious circumstances, they’ve told the police “Incredible! Those can only be the long-lost remains of the reviled King Richard III! No other explanation is possible!”

Turns out that one of them was actually telling the truth, for once. I’m sure she was just as surprised by the results of the DNA testing as the cops.

“Well. Mystery solved,” Mrs. Paley was heard to say. “So there’s definitely no need to extend the archaeological excavation as far as the low mound at the east end of the gardening shed.”
