When visiting this place it always saddens me that there is not a special place for certain people of the living who are in grave danger of sticking their finger down their throat one too many times and then going blllllllllllllusggggggggggggggggghhhh for the last time. I mean of course that annoying thing known as Jane Fonda. Least talented in the family compared to brother Peter and niece Bridget and father Henry Slaw, Jane is to be 73 this year and all those years of over exercise and fingering her throat must have taken a toll.


So here we have it a special place for the Janes and Jaynes and Jeans and Jeannes and Joans who are looking mighty close to death these days.

We have Joan Fontine born in 1917

Joan Sutherland born in 1926

Joan Plowright born in 1929----time to plow a place in the field for her to be placed?

and both Joan Riivers and Joan Collins born in 1933

Actress Joan Leslie who was in the Cagney classic Yankke Doodle Dandy born 1925

Joan Ganz Cooney who gave us Sesame Street born 1929----children could have 2 hours of a special devoted to how to properly grieve.

Jean Stapleton born 1923, I mean what has she done since her Edith Bunker character died nearly 30 years ago?

Jean Simmons born 1929

Jeanne Moreu appeared on Earth in 1928

Jane Russell born 1921

Jane Powell born 1929

Jane Withers former child star and later Josephine the plumber for Comet born in 1926 (not as far as I can tell related to Georgette "Googie" Withers

Jayne Meadows sister of Audrey and widow of Steve Allen born in1920 (her sister born 5+years after her has been gone since 1996 as has their brother Edward)

and as I said earlier, Jane Fonda born in 1937.

I have a feeling Jean Simmons will be the first one on your list to leave us, Bruno. Rumours abound on Twitter that she's on death's doorstep.

Forgive me, but this thread looks silly and useless to me. Of course, we could grant every common surname their own place on this forum, but what is the point?

:dead3:
I thought silly and useless was OK around here. Besides it's not about common surnames but fairly similar women's first names, or, to be specific, as Bruno has been, those called Jane, Jayne, Jeanne, Jean and Joan. I assume a Jo, Jade, Janis or Jasmin would need to be featured elsewhere. And besides the first besides, while there may be some silliness to it, as is Bruno's wont, I can think of a lot more useless threads than this one.

Besides the two besides I would add a "not only that" and that's this: it's a pretty impressive list of candidates. Far from being branded as useless, the list should be celebrated.

One concession, to add to the three besides and the not only that, is that if everyone was to make first name lists, such as all the old famous Johns, for example, it could get a bit sillier. But if those lists were in this thread it would give it a kind of symmetry and justification, not that it needs either. On the other hand (to add to the besides etc), Bruno may object to his thread being hijacked in such a cavalier fashion. Or he may not.

Oh well pardon me for not getting your approval first you miserable sack of sock lint. So my topic wasn't up to par for you? Just how many topics have you bothered trying to create? 2 from what your profile shows. I made a topic, I targeted a specific set of names in my own round-about way of pointing the finger of doom at Jane Fonda. The names listed were people who are in an age realm/category ripe for the picking by the Coffin Packers Association.

You don't care for the topic, you have options----------1)Don't post in the topic
2)Create a topic which you feel is better
3)Bring it to the moderators, explaining your concerns and ask for it to be
moved or merged.

What does any of it matter? Twerps like Tomb are why Godot and others can't be bothered coming around here any more. People create topics, moderators and the staff approve or disapprove of the topic and let it stand alone or merge it with another or delete it. People like Tomb make snide remarks and snipe at the person who creates the topic and people are turned off by the antagonistic attitude and leave, never to be seen here again.

I suggest that Tomb and her/his ilk go create their own site so they can delete every topic which fails to meet their desires.....of course, this would mean they'd have a site with very few if any topics.

Right.

You forgot to take your pills again, Bruno?

But as you seem to be quite agitated by my post, I'll try to explain myself further. You're right that you have every right to create whatever thread you like and I don't have the authority to do anything about it. I do have the right to express my feelings about it, though, and so I did. If you don't want people to respond, don't even try and start.

All your Janes (or anything that even vaguely sounds like that) are discussed (or at least can be discussed) elsewhere on the forum. The only reason to bring them together would be... er... I don't know? Is there any point, actually?

If my 'snide remarks' were aimed at a vulnerable and insecure My Little Pony-girl, your accusation of me scaring off people would make sense. I was talking to you, however, and I reckoned you were able to take it a little bit better. Don't let my antagonism limit your (cough) creativity and brabble away.

feeling good about yourself yet? Obviously not. In your continued juvenile attack of me { "Forgot to take your pills...?' and "insecure My Little Pony-girl"} and my topic, you also alas failed to even notice that one on my list is now dead, so perhaps it wasn't as vapid a topic as you'd like to believe. Sadly that~~~attacking others~~~~ seems to be what works best for you.

Seeing all these Jeans brought to mind Jean Morton, whom UK readers of a certain age may remember as Auntie Jean from "The Tingha & Tucker Club".

It's funny I associate BrunoBrimley more with humiliating members and bashing them into the ground than I do Tomb Raider.

We have Joan Fontine born in 1917

Joan Sutherland born in 1926

Joan Plowright born in 1929----time to plow a place in the field for her to be placed?

and both Joan Riivers and Joan Collins born in 1933

Actress Joan Leslie who was in the Cagney classic Yankke Doodle Dandy born 1925

Joan Ganz Cooney who gave us Sesame Street born 1929----children could have 2 hours of a special devoted to how to properly grieve.

Jean Stapleton born 1923, I mean what has she done since her Edith Bunker character died nearly 30 years ago?

Jean Simmons born 1929

Jeanne Moreu appeared on Earth in 1928

Jane Russell born 1921

Jane Powell born 1929

Jane Withers former child star and later Josephine the plumber for Comet born in 1926 (not as far as I can tell related to Georgette "Googie" Withers

Jayne Meadows sister of Audrey and widow of Steve Allen born in1920 (her sister born 5+years after her has been gone since 1996 as has their brother Edward)

and as I said earlier, Jane Fonda born in 1937.

Maybe this could be BB's alternative 15 woman Death List for 2010. It's arguably a more interesting collection than ours given the common thread running through it, it's beating the DL at the moment, and doing so with 35 less names. All it needs is a catchy name.
