I need some of the punning wizardry involved in the cake death thread, as the best I can come up with for ex-World Champion hairdresser John Phelps, is that he has perm(anently) dyed.
Which is sh*t.

Phelps was mentioned in despatches here before & was a DDP pick, but whether he'll get the obit he needs is up in the air right now.

For some reason the forum software isn't letting me load the obit on here, so I'll link to this general site instead - http://news.google.co.uk/news?svnum=10&...5&as_maxm=2

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

Aunty Genoa Leilani Keawe, Hawaiian music icon has aloha-ed her last. There will be a 21-ukelele salute at her funeral.

Also 'Top Advertising Executive,' Paul Tilley has taken Bill Hicks' advice. Good for him.
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact's uncommonly clear

And why my angel eyes ain't here

American conservative writer William F. Buckley has died at the age of 82. A unique DDP hit for Noz4news if a UK obit emerges.

Boyd Coddington (American Hot Rod) is dead at 63. Cause of death is listed as complication as a result of a recent surgery, but are sufficiently vague to leave some questions. He was a long-time diabetic as well.

Bloody hell, that raises some possibilities, like they reattched a severed foot back to front and he walked around in circles for three hours before collapsing and expiring because he couldn't get to his insulin.

Or does anyone else know different.

I knew Boyd but hadn't seen him in years. With apologies to his fans, he was a complete asshole. He made his name taking credit for the work and talent of others and treated his people like dirt. Good riddance in my book.

DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

Dave Clark was the drummer, but it was his band. In the same way U2's lead singer is Bono but it's Larry Mullen who
put the band together and 'leads'...

Unhinged "preformance artist", "Zen Communist" and "avant-garde terrorist", Dorothy Podber, has died at the age of 75. She once pulled a gun on Andy Warhol. Her Telegraph obit is worth a look, just to see the old girl in all her finery.
Sometimes when we see the eyes- those horrible times when we see the eyes,eyes that ... that have no soul - then we know a darkness.

Senior Farc leader Raul Reyes (AKA Luis Edgar Devia) has been shot






I've never heard of him either!
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Joseph Juran, pioneer of quality control who revolutionized how companies around the world made and sold products and who was even the author of the "Quality Control Handbook" and has been quoted as saying Never be without a project,' and he never was," is dead at the result of a stroke at the age of 103. :)

A unique hit for 'Godot's Waiting List' if he gets the obituary.
