Well, as Shakespeare would say, Exit John Stape. Yes, while old Stape has shuffled off his mortal coil (you mean ventilator - ed), Chesney is left with a dilemma. Fiz wants Ches to organize a funeral for Stape. Ches doesn't think Stape is worth it. It's true that these things can be complicated but I think we can make this one pretty simple...
Choice of casket
Mahogany with brushed brass handles and silk interior lining?
Nah! Let's just go with an old rug from upstairs.
Horse drawn hearse courtesy of Archie Shuttleworth?
Nah! Let's just go with the trunk of John's car
Location of funeral service?
Emily Bishop's Church?
Nah, what about the teacher's lounge at Weatherfield Comprehensive
Funeral for a Friend or Candle in the Wind by Elton John
Nah! Let's go with Madman Across the Water
Poetry for the eulogy?
"Funeral Blues" by W.H. Auden or "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Dylan Thomas?
Nah! Let's just go with: "There was once was a nutter named Stape..." etc etc
Cremation or burial?
Well, Underworld is closed and there is a vacancy in the concrete foundation...
BTW Nice to see Ciaran and the fair Michelle back in the Street. That should spice things up
