It was encouragement to the finish line not a celebration. I would have posted a link if I were claiming victory

 

I'd just like to remind you I run a soap deadpool and could do without the heart attack posts like that give me. Spent far longer than I'll ever admit to trying to find a obit.

Sincere apologies. With hindsight the post was perhaps poorly judged but I would still very much like to claim the third podium place.

An older lady in our opera group. who sat a couple of rows in front of me at rehearsals, had cancer. Never had much to do with her and when I heard a month ago she had terminal cancer and wasn't going to last more than a couple of weeks I wasn't personally too upset. She died last week. So far so dull, I hear you say. It turns out that this lady  had an MBE, her own wikipedia page and got obits in the Washington Post, Guardian et al. Prime example of why I suck at deadpooling. Not only do i generally avoid people I've never heard of but I also fail to realize when there's a terminally ill obitable person sat about about 2 yards away from me.

 

In my defence had I known her better I would not have entered a personal friend in a deadpool anyway. Still, ironic though, Wouldn't have beaten Willie Thorne but died before 21st so would have got the bronze.

Each to their own but I think a member of a social group I attend would fall outside of a morally acceptable pick to me. I tend to avoid picking anybody I've actually met.

Yeah, but next year maybe not, eh?
