#265507 A Joke

Posted by Paul Bearer on 09 May 2016 - 08:27 PM

David Cameron was visiting a Glasgow primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion about words and their meanings.
The teacher asked Mr Cameron if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'Tragedy'.
So the the prime minister asked the class if they could think of an example of a tragedy.
A little boy stood up and said, 'If my best friend is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy.'
'Incorrect,' said Cameron, 'That would merely be an accident.'
A little girl stood up and said 'If a school bus carrying thirty children drove over a cliff, killing everybody inside, that would be a tragedy.'
'I'm afraid not', said Cameron, 'That's what we would call a great loss'.
The room went silent. No other kid volunteered. Cameron searched the room.
'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?'
Finally, little Johnny raised his hand from the back of the class and said, 'If a plane carrying you and all the Tory M.P.s was hit by a missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.'
'Fantastic!' exclaimed Cameron, 'And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?'
'Well,' said little Johnny, 'It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss, and it probably wouldn't be a fucking accident either'

#287152 Is The Deathlist Dying?

Posted by DevonDeathTrip on 27 December 2016 - 09:37 PM

I just thought I would revive this old thread, as today we have scaled new heights with 614 visitors simultaneously perusing the delights these forums have to offer. The vast majority will only be paying a fleeting visit, but a few will surely stick around and join our friendly, welcoming community.

This forum did teeter on the brink at one point - during one weekend in 2010 nobody posted anything at all. Today's stats would indicate that the Deathlist is far from dead.

Of course there will always be arguments around quality vs quantity of posts, but I for one am happy to see this forum thriving; we are also currently breaking records in site traffic on a daily basis. 2016 may have been a bad year for death (or a good year, depending on your point of view), but it has certainly hasn't done DL any harm.

2017 will bring new uncertainties for us all. That new axis of evil: Putin, Trump, ISIS and Teresa May may well contribute towards their subjects/victims developing a blacker sense of humour, which can only bode well for this site's prospects, regardless of the celebrity death toll.

Merry Christmas :-)

#255316 Paul Daniels

Posted by Youth in Asia on 20 February 2016 - 03:46 PM

Whenever I see Paul Daniels or Debbie I am reminded of that wonderful line from Mrs Merton


I think this is as good a place as any to have a bit of a rant about this whole "what first attracted you to multi-millionaire Paul Daniels" thing that gets trotted out ad infinitum whenever he is mentioned, or whenever two people with an age gap and a wealth gap get married these days. So here we go:


1) When they first met, Debbie had more money than he did (see her interview in the Telegraph a while back). He was preparing for his first major TV show at the age of 40 and had been a struggling entertainer for many years, so was nowhere near being a mllionaire or multi-millionaire. She was only 21 but had had a successful dancing career up to that point, including a stint in Tehran at the Iranian national ballet. She was a graduate of the Royal Ballet School, and is from a middle class family, so not short of money.


2) They got married 9 years after they met. So hardly like Kylie (just engaged to a 28yo she's known a few months) or Stephen Fry, or Catherine Zeta-Jones or hundreds of others.


3) They're still together after 28 years of marriage, and knowing each other for 37 years. Probably longer than 95% of showbiz marriages.


4) Caroline Aherne, denizen of many DDP teams (who was Mrs Merton and in 1995 did the show with McGee) had herself just got married to Peter Hook, bassist of New Order in 1994. Let's for the sake of argument, call him "famous multi-millionaire bassist" Peter Hook, and ask what first attracted her.


5) Caroline Aherne's marriage to Peter Hook ended in 1997, after 3 years. it is not known how much of his estate she took in the divorce.



So what is the point of this rant? I'm not entirely sure. I don't know either of them, perhaps they are both horrible unpleasant people. They said both the Mrs Merton show and the later Louis Theroux show gave them big career boosts. So it obviously doesn't bother them very much.


But it bothers me because the whole thing is just so ridiculous and factually wrong, and every time I see it on my computer screen in the comments sections  I want to put my foot through the screen and send the bill to Caroline Aherne. Perhaps some people feel the same about whenever Captain Pugwash is mentioned, some smart arse comes along and says "haha snort snort did you know they had a character called Roger the Cabin Boy and another one called Seaman Staines snort snort just imagine eh lolz" when of course none of those characters were actually in the programme, it was made up later by someone having a laugh.


/end of rant.

#197392 Ronnie Biggs

Posted by CriticalDivide on 19 December 2013 - 12:20 AM

Ron - as many of you may know - always enjoyed the Death List and those here who play it in the right spirit. He also made me promise that when he died I would post this message. His death was sudden, and he was in contact with Paul Bearer only a few days ago and was about to send Christmas Greetings to the site.

So over to Ron:

"You always did warn me that you would win in the end, so congratulations and thanks for your patience over these many years. I was honoured to be your ambassador and will miss you probably more than you will miss me. And if you ask, yes it was a life worth living, even with the regrets. i hope you all get as much out of life as I have. See you on the other side."

There's just one more thing I want to do. I'm going to put news of some of the more controversial picks, when they inevitably drop on

a separate, linked page called The Obituary Vault. I'm going to work on that right now...
