When Lord Nelson died he was 5 foot tall.
His statue in London is 15 feet tall.
That's Horatio of 3:1

Wally's mighty pissed that a great hockey player was a great Liberal. He tends to judge hockey players on their political beliefs

I remember an interview with him, at the time. A Canadian reporter asked him what he did in the Soviet Union when he wasn't playing hockey. He said that he was a Captain the the Red Army. What did he do in the Red Army, he asked? I have a platoon of goalies under me, was his answer.

Cold War humour ...

Freddie Starr: Tributes paid after comic dies aged 76

10 May 2019
BBC News



Tributes have been paid to comedian Freddie Starr who has died aged 76.

The Merseyside-born comic, singer, impressionist and actor was found dead in his home in the Costa Del Sol region of Spain, the Sun said.

Comedian Bobby Davro described him as "the funniest man I have ever seen", while presenter Amanda Holden said he should be "remembered with a smile".

Davro tweeted: "I'm so sad we have lost one of our greatest comedy talents."

Britain's Got Talent judge Holden added: "Sad to hear of Freddie Starr passing today. His style may have fallen out of comedy fashion and favour - but it's important to recognise his once huge popularity and fame."

She added: "I hope his legacy is not smalled down and he's remembered with a smile."

Comedian Jim Davidson also tweeted: "Just heard the news. Freddie Starr was the greatest."

Lord Sugar described Starr as a "very funny man".

Fellow Liverpool comedian and TV personality Les Dennis tweeted that Starr was "so exciting to watch live."

"A true clown who could also sing like Elvis," he added. "A total one off. RIP."

The BBC has not been able to confirm the reports, however Euro Weekly News is reporting the coroner in Malaga has confirmed to them that Starr died of natural causes.

Starr rose to prominence in the early 1970s after appearing on the TV talent show Opportunity Knocks. He starred in several other TV programmes in the 90s and famously featured in The Sun's "Freddie Starr Ate My Hamster" headline in 1986.

In 2012, he was arrested by police investigating allegations of historical sexual abuse but he was never charged.

Minge. Twat. Fanny.

Twat can also be used as a verb to mean "to beat up" - "I'm gonna f"cking twat you, you knob."
