An embarrassing moment

As my talk at the Eastbourne Heritage Centre, on the history of Justices of the Peace, draws nearer,  I can’t help remembering a talk I gave to another group some tome ago.  At the end of the talk I asked if there were any questions.  Several hands went up

The fist question was “Do Magistrates wear wigs and gowns like Judges?”

“No” I replied and added, without thinking “Magistrates don’t wear anything”

Not what I meant at all.  That talk ended in somewhat riotous manner.
