    Clive Dunn

    The death of Clive has brought me back after a (too) long absence, to pay my respects. The word legend is bandied about too easily these days, yet the number of tributes here surely mark the passing of one - a man who headed the inaugral deathlist, and for 25 years nurtured the belief that immortality was a distinct possibility. When planning Winston Churchills funeral, the army codenamed it Operation Hope Not. I would like to think that most Deartlisters had the same codename for Clive's passing. There has been mention of retiring the 50 slot in tribute - a much more fitting tribute would be to retire the slot Clive occupied 25 years ago, in the first deathlist - number 1.

    Michael Jackson

    Looks like to family may have picked up some ideas from this thread.... Unconfirmed reports suggest Jackson's body may be placed in a glass coffin and be transported from Los Angeles to Neverland in a "fairytale carriage".

    Karl Malden

    According to the LA Times article, he was born in Chicago, and only moved to Gary, Indiana, when 5. Interestingly, I notice that his website is under construction, with an update due 2009. Wont be much to update now!

    With Easter nearly upon us, perhaps they could just keep her head for Egg Rolling...

    You know, in my times of stress, the thought that its all going down the pan, and I think it is, its so comforting to pop on here and read the kind of post that puts everything into perspective. Thanks Lardy I Love you. Regards LFN Wow, if I knew what an impact (ho ho) my shitty ramblings would have, I would have posted it sooner. Sorry to be a pooper...

    No Dick "Ooh, you are awful ... but I like you!" Emery, or Ira "Porgy and Bess" Gershwin

    Margaret Thatcher

    I notice that whilst the petition to 'not support a state funeral for Baroness Thatcher' now has 5000+ signatures, a petition to 'grant Margaret Thatcher a state funeral, when the time sadly arises' was rejected.

    Missing In Action

    Note that his body has never been found - what would happen if he suddenly turned up riding Shergar through the streets of (London)Derry?

    Widow(er) Shopping

    Not sure how famous - but sure she would get an obit... Norris Church Mailer - widow of the late Norman - . although it seems she may have some competition from a mistress. Nice going when you are in your 70's.....

    Should He Stay Or Should He Go?

    Brought back memories of this little sketch...

    Albert Hofmann

    I think that should read "in March", although "on Mars" would probably be equally valid, given enough drugs.... Psychedelic Forum Speakers Edit: If I wasn't half way there already, would have beaten Phantom to the joke

    Stephen Hawking

    So, a severe case of conjunctivitis could re-write physics as we know it....

    Room 101

    To do this safely, keep your foot on the accelerator and break lightly with the other so that it doesn't actually slow your car down - helps avoid an arctic in your rear seat. An ex-colleague of mine, when faced with tail-gaters, would flip on his side lights. The red lights at the rear would appear, to most drivers, as brake lights (especially if they weren't paying close attention). Has the same effect, without losing any speed. Of course, this only works when it is light enough not to need lights during the day, which in Scotland rules out around 9 months of the year

    Dying On Your Birthday

    Dunno, I remember one of our most esteemed mods (Teddy) added a link to a thread which showed people that died on their birthday, but I cant find it, or remember which one it was. What a good memory HCW. The link was in this thread, many moons ago, but seems the same link that Lard Bazaar has posted.
