"Not on speaking terms" joke
Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes stories, was convinced that the dead could communicate with the living. Once, shortly after the death of a fellow writer, he was asked if he had heard from the deceased. He admitted that he had not.
'Are you convinced now,' continued his questioner,' that spiritualism is a fake?'
'Not at all,' replied Doyle,' I hadn't expected him to contact me. We weren't on speaking terms when he died.'
