R.I.P. Mollie Sugden

Postby Tonyblack » Thu Jul 02, 2009 12:16 pm

A very funny lady passed away recently. I was never a fan of 'Are You Being Served' mainly because it came on TV just about the time I got a job in a department store (not unlike Grace Bros.). If I had a Pound for every idiot to ask me "are you free?"... :evil:

But Mollie Sugden has been part of my life for many years - a constant face on the TV screen and a wonderful actress.

May she Rest In Peace

If you had a pound for every time some idiot asked if you were free, then you wouldn't have been free, you would have cost a pound each time. :roll:

I will always have fond memories of Molly Sugden's warm pussy. :lol:

What? You mean you never thought about her pussy being warm?

For non UK readers who may be a bit lost;

"During its run, the series attracted some mild criticism for its reliance on sexual stereotypes and sexual double entendres, including jokes about Mrs. Slocombe's "pussy" (cat) e.g. Mrs Slocombe: "Animals are very psychic; the least sign of danger and my pussy's hair stands on end". Wikipedia

(for US readers who may be a bit lost, Mollie Sugden was famous for her sexual double entendres - usually involving her cat)
Are You Being Served is STILL being shown every week on PBS (Public Broadcast Service) in the US. I think most Americans are intimate with Mrs Slocombe's pussy. :lol:

Aha! That's why I changed the post from "US" to "non UK" readers before you quoted me! 8)

Edit buttons - so much endless fun :roll: :P

Was sad looking at the Are You Being Served with John Inman and Wendy Richards with them all passing on recently too - that was such a tight cast back then, though I didn't like the later ones without Mr Lucas so much. It was strange seeing her in something like The Six Wives of Henry VIII but there's no doubt she was a comedy actress and what a range! :lol:

Also how beautiful she was in her younger days - what an amazing face that only grew more interesting with character as she grew older

Definitely RIP for a very lovable lady who made us laugh :D
