Mentally and physically you are inferior to me
Rather than have a new thread for every death of a political nobody, king of pop, reality TV tart or gay backing singer we should have one thread to encompass the lot.

Would save all this outpouring of fake grief from people who never knew the dead person in the first place, yet feel they have a right to comment on their life in the first place.

Not sure who to start with so will leave it up to someone on here who actually gives a sh*t.

Good idea. But rather than comment on each one, I would like to leave this all purpose tribute:

I never knew him/her/them (delete as applicable) but was touched by his/her/their (delete as applicable) music/humanity/roving hands (delete as applicable).

I 4-1 will mourn the death of the individual tribute thread. It provided comfort and purpose to those with too little else in their lives, and will be sadly missed. You're a cruel man RtP.

RIP.

I'm not sure if this is an attempt at a woosh or not but it looks like Stephen Gately from Boyzone has started the ball rolling for you, RtP, as he died over night at the age of 33. I'm no fan of him or Boyzone but to die in seemingly good spirits at such a young age is a bit of a shocker no matter who it is.

HA (alledgely)

i mean one of those sweeps where u pick a celeb and pay, like, 50p a week and the celebs names are put into individual envolopes and all the entrants write their own name on the envelope and are given the full list of names.

when one celeb on the list dies the envelopes are openned.

Jacques Chessex has died.

I have never heard of him but he was a great man who will be missed by millions, mostly people like me who have no idea who he was.

RIP Jacques.

Author and prolific painter. Controversial character in Switzerland. Not sure if he was gay though, looks like he had some talent and will be missed so don't think he should appear on this thread. RIP all the same.

Fair enough, but having not heard of him myself, I felt compelled to express my grief.

Some friend of the one in Little Britain died last week. I think he was Gay. Not sure if he was a backing singer though. I didn't know him but do know other people that die from time to time. Can they go on here as well? I know their no celebrities but they mean more to me.

I suppose the good news for the O poster is that Robbie Williams seems to prove that a life of booze drugs and un-protected sex with hundreds of women is much better for you than certain other lifestyle choices.

I don't care that Boy's own Billy is dead comma I didn't wish him any ill comma but like Jade Goody comma I didn't know either of comma of them so what's the big deal. I notice 40 odd people died over the week end somewhere I have never been comma cos of some natural disaster sh*t comma WTF ?

A good friend of mine Od'd a little while ago comma that made me sad comma she was about the same age as Gateley and died in what I am guessing was a similar way for similar reasons comma but had none of the advantages he had.

No offence but f*ck him comma f*ck all the other celebrities comma and particularly f*ck all the muppets that think their favourite celebs would stop their limos in the street to come over and **** on them if they were on fire.

Looking for the cheese board
According to the Guardian Ben Ali who owned a diner in Washington is dead, didn't know that there were any famous Chili restaurant entreprenaurs but apparently he was one......although I've never heard of him

RIP
