Two comedy legends already this month.  First Buck Henry and now him.  What’s Up Doc is my favorite non Disney live action G rated movie.

RIP both.

He had a really shitty dementia, same as my grandmother had years ago.  I think John Cleese said he was the moral arbiter of what was "Python" or not, and he made the best female impersonator of all the Pythons.  

2020`s going to get a bad reputation if it keeps taking heroes.

I was surprised that it's so long ago since Chapman died, over 30 years now. I must have forgotten but it seemed to me that he was around way after 1989.

One of the last things he did was "Can I Play with Madness" video. He was not looking well :( I remember seeing that on TOTP.

The Grim Reaper has been a downright bastard this year! I knew this was coming, but I didn't know that it would come so soon! :(

RIP Terry! Thanks for all the laughs through the years! Say hello to dear old Graham for all of us!

Terry Jones died from a rare form of dementia, called frontotemporal dementia, or FTD.  

This motivated the remaining Pythons to notify all well-wishers:  

Whatever you do, do NOT send flowers!    :P :P :P



[The spirit of Terry Jones approved this joke.]
