I read these from The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody by Will Cuppy:
1. "He had only made himself sick carousing with the Duchesse de Chateauroux... Now hecklers laughed at the hearse and shouted, 'There goes the Ladies' Delight!" That's more than you can say of some people."
I don't understand what "That's more than you can say of some people" mean...
2. "Speaking of murder, Peter played the violin -- 'pretty well,' we are told. Now are you convinced?"
I don't understand what murder has to do with playing violin...
3. "Matilda of Flanders made her famous crack when William the Conqueror applied for her hand in marriage."
What does "crack" mean in this context?
