I only know of him because he was elected Rector of the University of Aberdeen when I was there.

He lost me, I'm afraid. What were people laughing at? (I know vaguely who Joran van der Sloot is, but I couldn't have named either of his victims, sorry.)

Was John Sullivan cremated or buried? either way I think he'll be turning in his urn / grave

 

Only Fools & Horses gets US remake

 

Not necessarily, his estate will be quids in (even more so) if it's a hit. Be able to afford fresh flowers on the grave each day :)

One of Frank Carson's contemporaries, Ken Goodwin has died aged 78 in a Welsh Nursing home.

 

He was too good for this place.

Yep, it is. That's what I get for not bothering to read the front page.

 

Have this YouTube video of Norman Collier's hilarious microphone routine, which spreads a little insight into one of the most prodigious comedy minds of the past 50 years.

A man goes into a Hardware shop,

“I’ll have a bag of nails please” he says

“Yes Sir, how long would you like them ?” the man behind the counter asks

“I’d like to keep them”
