From Bennett’s Untold Stories. Florence is Alan’s cousin, married to Frank. They run a boarding-house in Blackpool. Bennett describes a letter received from cousin Flo at the Bennett household…

‘Halfway down the second page came the sentence: “Frank died last week, haven’t we been having some weather?” Seldom can a comma have borne such a burden.’

I think if you read that sentence back to yourself in a slightly lugubrious Leeds accent, it might well raise a titter.
