If they'd known she was dying they'd have baked her a cake
Lady Nancy Astor died on this day in 1964. She was the first woman to serve as a member of the British Parliament, as a member of the House of Commons.
Her last words, when she woke briefly during her last illness and found all her family around her bedside:
"Am I dying or is this my birthday?"
Note: "Nancy Astor" is an anagram of "canary snot." Got any good (or gross) anagrams of your own? Let me know. Want more inspiration?
