Uncle Monty has passed on...

PostPosted by Arseholed on Gin » Fri Mar 29, 2013 12:37 pm

:( Just seen that Richard Griffiths has died aged 65.

That has taken the shine off my Easter somewhat...as I look out the window I can see the sky beginning to bruise.

RIP, and chin chin :wine:

The older order changeth, yielding place to new. God fulfills himself in many ways. And soon, I suppose, I shall be swept away by some vulgar little tumour. Oh, my boys, my boys, we're at the end of an age. We live in a land of weather forcasts and breakfasts that set in. Shat on by Tories, shovelled up by Labour. And here we are, we three, perhaps the last island of beauty in the world.


Now, which of you is going to be a splendid fellow and go down to the Rolls for the rest of the wine?

Very sad news, a loss to us all of a fine man and a great actor.

I believe he used to evict people from theaters if their mobile phones went off while he was performing ... and good on him.



Thanks for the memories ... Chin Chin Monty :wine:

As has been pointed out on this forum before, his was the finest performance in the film. And that is saying something.

Love to hear what REG, Paul McGann and Bruce have to say.

RIP Richard.

Forgive me. I was moping about in my own thread, not realising this one was was here already. If Crooked had not pointed me here, it would have taken me aeons to get here.

A toast and a song to Richard Griffiths. You played it right.
