The ‘where’ and ‘when’ in the song ‘We’ll meet again’ revealed to be the morgue, in about a fortnight


VE Day street parties

After thousands danced in the street yesterday singing “We’ll meet again, don’t know where, don’t know when”, experts have suggested they might be able to predict where the next meeting will take place.

Thousands of street party attendees flouted social distancing guidelines yesterday to cram themselves into the roads outside their homes to dance and sing ‘We’ll meet again’ with their neighbours, inadvertently starting the ‘second wave’ of Coronavirus before the easing of lockdown had even begun.

Medical expert Dr Simon Williams told us, “Oh that Vera Lynn song is an absolute classic, full of hope and solidarity, and the ‘don’t know where, don’t know when’ bit is a big part of it.

“It gives those who sing it a sense that even though they don’t know what the future holds, there is the promise of better times ahead.

“Sadly though, given the pitiful disregard for social distancing yesterday, we’re able to pretty accurately guess where and when many of these imbeciles will be meeting again, and not to be too depressing, but it’ll be in the mortuary in about a fortnight for a great number of them.”

He added, “Some people were even doing the conga down their street! Although in fairness, I’ve always thought that those in favour of doing the conga should be removed from the gene pool, so every cloud.”

VE DAy partygoer Derek Williams (no relation) told us, “Nothing wrong with dancing in the streets and hugging my elderly neighbours to celebrate us beating Europe in a war, mate.

“Although I’m off a lie down now. I’ve got a bit of a cough and I’m not feeling too good, to be honest.”
