You Can't Beat a Bit of Bully
Never mind Brexit or the spat with the Russians (whose bots are not yet boycotting me) it has been a sad week in the UK given that we have lost three cultural icons.
First there was a comedy genius in the shape of Ken Dodd dying at the ripe old age of 90.
Finally we all got a topical opportunity to wheel out the old joke.
"Ken Dodd died today"
The old ones are the best.
Then we lost the mathematical genius Stephen Hawking at the age of 76 .Rol posted a fine Top 10 tribute over at his place on Thursday.An intellectual giant, socialist and an inspiration for anyone with a disability.And Stephen Hawking was pretty impressive as well!
Finally we lost a comedy AND a mathematical genius in the shape of former teacher Jim Bowen the brilliant host of the Bullseye darts game show at the age of 80 or twenty, twenty, double tops if you prefer.
Sadly the above news is the opposite of one of his many great catchphrases - Great, Smashing, Super
Rest easy gentlemen
