    Like many of us I grew up with the Two Ronnie's and Morcambe & Wise; wonderful good-time TV memories from my early teens.

    No, and no.

    Nice to see how well liked the man was. May he rest in peace.

    I suppose this means there will be less laughter in the world from now on. I mean, it's not funny when children starve to death, or when a comedian commits suicide. No, let's not talk about that stuff. Instead we should remember fondly, and reminisce together about someone from a comedy show we don't really know and who never knew us. Like the guy really gives a sh t right now what we think of him. After all, wouldn't it be more fun to just post a few critical comments about a fellow poster we all know instead? Wouldn't you all rather entertain yourselves by ridiculing someone you all detest? Or is this just an interlude before the next round of disdain and contempt is unleashed?

    That's my pessimistic rant for the day. Thank you and sweet dreams.

    Hey FMF, there's an idea for a thread for ya! The Rant Thread. πŸ˜‰

    What does this have to do with Ronnie Corbett?

    The Thread title kinda gives it away don't ya think?

    Start up some other threads with your splendid ideas instead of polluting this one.

    Yeah - Monday lunchtime at school was spent replaying those great sketches from the weekend.

    who is his clown , joseph...?

    this thread was created to honour the memory of a much loved, talented UK comedian, who sadly passed away recently

    I notice today that Mr Alice Cooper has taken time to pay his respects

    If you have nothing constructive to say, please stay quiet.

    Take no notice of Josephw and his "couldn't give a sh t" pious misanthropy. He is currently in a self imposed pseudo-exile from the spirituality forum where you will still find several pairs of white underpants stew across the metaphorical floor after being metaphorically pulled down on the Internet.

    A few of Corbett's quips:

    A cement mixer collided with a prison van on the Kingston by-pass. Motorists are asked to be on the look-out for 16 hardened criminals.

    We'll be talking to a car designer who's crossed a Toyota with Quasimodo and come up with the Hatchback of Notre Dame .

    A juggernaut of onions has shed its load all over the M1. Motorists are advised to find a hard shoulder to cry on.

    After a series of crimes in the Glasgow area, Chief Inspector McTavish has announced that he is looking for a man with one eye. If he doesn't find him, he's going to use both eyes.

    French wine growers fear that this year's vintage may be entirely spoiled due to the grape treaders' sit-in.

    All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my right hand .

    There was a fire at the Inland Revenue office in London today, but it was put out before any serious good was done.
