Very sad.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

You are not alone.



I've just seen the most random post on any forum, ever!

There's an RIP thread for Tony Curtis on BBC Points of View forum.

Somebody just posted........... "We shared the same blood group. Type 'O'."

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Oh.

Apparently that Type O thing is a line from Some Like it Hot.
