I Always Knew "The Waste Land" Was Hilarious

From Wikipedia:

One evening Eliot read from the poem to the Royal Family during WWII. Years later, the Queen Mother recalled the evening: "We had this rather lugubrious man in a suit, and he read a poem... I think it was called The Desert. And first the girls [Elizabeth and Margaret] got the giggles and then I did and then even the King."
