    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

    And Alt Obits wouldn't accept her as famous enough.
  2. Made me think of this.

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

    It's been mentioned a few times. Surprising that nobody started a dedicated thread for her - she was more intriguing than many who have their own thread, since she could have gone at literally any time.

    Queen Elizabeth II

    Wow, elegant lady, but the Queen looks like she's wearing curtains.

    8. Jimmy Carter

    That's what he probably thought, but it was actually two steps down .....

    44. Prunella Scales

    He's been Winston Churchill a couple of times, but it's Royal Jelly that sticks in my mind.

    The Dead of 2019

    He's not dead - is he?
  9. The Beach Boys, Pet Sounds. I don't understand why this album is so revered and considered to be a masterpiece. Yes, the harmonies are great, but apart from the three songs we all know, the rest are bland fillers.

    The English Language

    Indeed, the end-of-year school disco has in many places morphed into the type of elaborate do that you describe, along with the extra huge expenses that it brings with it. I still have no idea what "homecoming" means, despite hearing the Monkees singing about a homecoming queen (whatever that is) many decades ago. While we're on stupid American customs, I have noticed one that has recently been creeping over here at weddings. That is for the bridesmaids to precede the bride into the church. How fucking ridiculous. They are supposed to be there to assist the bride, to carry her train. They are no use walking in front of her! Last Christmas I watched a bride going into church on a wet and windy day. She had to lift her dress right up and all but tuck it into her knickers to keep it out of the mud and puddles. If they had kept to tradition with the bridesmaids following her, they would have achieved this in a far more elegant way.
  11. That's just given me a horrific mental image.

    Legends in their own minds

    "Legend" seems to have become a journalistic cliche that is automatically attached to any vaguely newsworthy person who dies.

    The English Language

    That means holiday at home, yes? A meaningless coinage because when you go away for a holiday you stay somewhere, don't you, be it at a hotel or a campsite or wherever. Somebody didn't think that one through.

    Prom instead of school disco. Vacation instead of holiday.

    Hares Death Pool 2019

    My thinking was that it's better to add points than to take them away when the date emerges, which it probably will.

    Lookie Likey

    Saw a little bunch of them at Croke Park once.

    Hares Death Pool 2019

    I think I would award points based on 1st September, then add points if/when a date is confirmed before the end of the year. We know she died, and that she died in September, so it would seem unfair not to award anything.

    Paul Gascoigne

    At least he didn't offer her a fishing rod and a chicken dinner.

    Perhaps they think you mean Steps.

    Me for one, also a wildcard.
  22. Here, Quimmy, I chose this one for you.
