    It was with great sadness that I learned this morning of the death of Bob Monkhouse. He has been one of our greatest comedians over the last many years. His rapid instant response wit was probably only exceeded by that of Spike Milligan. It has been a sad year for comedy. I am sure Bob would not mind me saying that with all this turkey left over, his departure was timely.

    Also the most sought after and highly paid after-dinner speaker on the circuit it would appear.

    I think that line sums it all up sam*4

    The last time I was in Spain I got through six Jeffrey Archer novels. I must remember to take enough toilet paper next time.

    Personally, I don't think there's intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    I thought his shows weren't that good but when he wasn't on a script on something like "Have I Got News For You" he was hilarious.



    Edit: Doh! You beat me to it!

    He scripted a lot more than people give him credit for I think.

    If you don't go to other peoples funerals, they won't go to yours.
