I’m a freelance Widow Cleaner. I clean Widows.

Call me on my Hot Line. 00951 007007007.

90% Discount for first 100 Widows.

I charge $200 per hour per Widow. ( Non negotiable )

Have fun!

I’m an engineer.
But in my dreams I’m an artist: I sing, dance or play the piano (a pink piano).

That doesn’t make sense. Either you charge $200 per window or per hour. Unless of course you charge $200 for whichever comes first - a clean window or an hour of work.

A widow cleaner? That reminds me of a script from one of Gerard Hoffnung’s sketches, said allegedly by a hotelier: In our hotel we have a French widow in every bedroom.


If you don’t want to hear the whole recording, start at 21.30.


A French widow in every bedroom, very funny! Great guy that Gerad Hoffnung and he had an interesting background: German Jewish deported to England where he made a career as a musician and comedian. I wonder what he sounded like when he spoke German?[YSaerTTEW443543]

Mea culpa!
I thought he wrote “window”. Now I see the point of his tongue in cheek comment.
Like finding wealthy widows and cleaning them out. Nice job!

Edited: the idiom was corrected.


Sorry to be the boring nitpicker - it’s ‘tongue in cheek’.


Hi Alan,

Thanks for your correction!
I hope I will remember this idiom now. :))
