As my friend Grammardog said:

"Let's just face the facts here. We all knew in our hearts that Bob Hope was going to die, did we not? The poor guy was 100 years old and was last seen dining on pured roast beef and prune juice. Entertainment Tonight has had the report about his death completed and filed away since 1984.

But Liza Minelli and David Gest splitting up! Who knew?

It was a beautiful dream... I guess we all knew it couldn't last forever."

Heh.

The NY Times ran a Bob Hope obit by a writer who's been dead since 2000.

I think it's more of a Little Lord Fauntleroy stage.

Don't you mean "Little Lord Fondleboy"?

(Okay... I'm slapping my own fingers now)

edited to avoid besmirching MJ's good name.

Well, don't panic, Sisyphus. It could simply be further evidence -- if any were needed -- that S/he has a really sick sense of humour.

On second thought... go ahead and panic. I'd rather live in a cold, Godless universe ...

Well you know, Lisa Marie Presley said of Nicholas Cage, to whom she was briefly married, that he was just a collector of Elvis memorabilia.
