I take ONE day off to go to the hairdressers, and we get a hit :angel2:

That happens whenever I go on holiday, perhaps if we both took the day off Mrs Thatcher might oblige us and snuff it?
Perhaps if the three of us went elsewhere, we'd have a whole slew of successes?!

Outside of DL success, I have no feelings whatsoever about Mr Profumo, but will wish him a somewhat belated Happy Eternity, wherever he now is...

Some of the press coverage treated us to recent pictures of Christine Keeler who lives 'quietly' in North London. She looks as rough as a stray dog's rear end. She's not exactly a near-future contender but she stress and depression were written all over her face.

It's been just over a week now and poor old Profumo still has no write up on the front page.

Has our esteemed leader gone AWOL?

Well I suppose with many pointless threads and annoying members it does make sense to forget about it all for a while. There was even a time recently where I pretty much choose to be suspended.

If Grim Reaper had trouble finding the time to write the obituarys i'd love to have the job.

Of course I couldn't expect him to let it go. It is great writing an obituary about a person
dieing on your list and putting it up for all to see.

So farewell John and off you pop,
You political wheeler dealer,
You were very famous once,
For boffing Chistine Keeler.


But now at ninety-one years old,
T'is time to say "Bon Soir"
And fly up to the Angels,
Because the other way is to far.

So I will stop, and bit adieu,
From him, and her, and me, to you.

Ode to Profumo (continued)



Your exploits have been recounted at length
To great mirth and hilarity
But you gave up the life of hookers and drugs
To devote yourself to charity

If Deathlist cannot find any details about you
In any form of media
Much as it pains me to say it, they could do worse
Than look in Wikipedia

All the years, waiting for a sign"

Your wife forgave you over time,
But confined you to the spare room. Oh,

The strange case of old Profumo.

Profumo and Weinberger now have profiles on the front page, but at a terrible cost. I've been informed that TF has been having major problems logging in, perhaps he may never be able to post with out proxy again!

Cthulhu! What have you done! Could we at least have a yellow exclamation triangle next to Caspar Weinberger's thread in TF's memory?

Weinberger is hogging the front page so I thought I'd bring Profumo's little write up to wider attention here:

Profumo keels over

10th March 2006

John Profumo, the subject of a major British political scandal in the 1963, has died at the age of 91 to give DeathList 2006 its third success. Profumo’s started an affair with good time girl Christine Keeler, only for it to be discovered that she was also close to a high-ranking Russian naval attaché. Profumo was forced to resign and the conservative government subsequently lost the next election, however the event did spawn a successful movie in 1989. Profumo was the number 23 selection on this year’s list in his first ever appearance.

Cheers GR.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

Politician of some sort and according to his Wikipedia biography on
Thatchers 80th birthday celebration he attended but not on foot
it was in a wheel chair since as they describe "His extreme old age"
confined him too one.

Looks promising.

And I think I can get use - to seeing Margaret Thatcher's name hanging on spot 36...
