One of King Richard the Turd's descendants

Leicester, UK - The skeleton of a long-dead English king discovered at a Leicestershire landfill is to be reinterred in a Bosworth Field car park according to ancient royal rite.

King Henry IV Part 1 will be buried in a gaping hole left from the exhumation of King Richard the Turd's penultimate resting place.

Meanwhile Tricky Dickie, as he was known among his Plantagenet set, will get an all-bells-and-whistles send off at the Red Leicester cheese factory where a new sarcophagus awaits his twisted remains.

Born decades apart the two monarchs nevertheless had many similarities such as getting into turf wars with insurgent thugs.

Off duty Henry was known for his lost weekends at Mistress Sickley's Tavern where he would quaff gallons of ale with crazy chums like Falsestuff.

Richard however eschewed such pleasures preferring Lady Lustgarter's Ho Shoppe where he leaned towards servicing by bisexual dwarfs.

The Battle of Bosworth denied him his final stimulus and he died crying, 'A whorse, my king dung for a whorse.'
