Celebrity Deaths 2018


#421

Penny Cook from A Country Practice and ex-spouse of dirty old man, Clive Robertson, has dropped off the perch at age 61 from cancer.

I remember the episode on Clive’s late evening news show where they had a video of ■■■■ star, Cicciolina, showing us where Tasmania is, when standing for the Italian parliament. He must have shown it 20 times in a row.

There’s a little piece of my childhood gone… A Country Practice… wow.

Trivia, “cookie” was my grandfather’s cousin.

Cool story, bro


#423

I recall a pretty confronting episode where meek little Grant Dodwell got tired of hearing and very quickly and effectively rebutted his wife Penny’s ‘just kick him in the nuts’ theory of rape prevention.

Pretty brutal for ACA.


#424

Merda! I didn’t know she was sick.


#425

Any excuse


#426

Syd Heylen was that old that he was part of MY childhood.

Used to be in Sunnyside Up on a Friday night…or was it Saturday night. One of those shows used to whip out to the red hots at the Showgrounds.


#427

Wasn’t that old when he bought it - only 60 or something


#428

Didn’t Cookie’s mate from ACP get fingered for enjoying himself at the expense of young acting students?


#429

Old knucklehead


#430

■■■■■■ Hatfield.


#431

I remember the episode where he lost his libido.
Good character acting.


#432

Acquitted of charges.


#433

So the the judge found that the prosecution failed to prove the charges against Cookie’s mate, not that Cookie’s mate is innocent?


#434

Lol.

Thanks for that viewpoint, Mr Whately.

I can’t find any reference to the court findings. Only that he was not guilty and never faced sentencing.


#435

You find people accused of fiddling children funny?


#436

I find your interpretation of the criminal system funny and quite similar to an angle adopted by certain people during a certain saga.

And as noted in my edit, I can find nothing online that indicates the basis of clearing him.


#437

You said he had been acquitted?

There is a big difference between being acquitted and found not guilty. A very big difference which would bring a sigh of relief to one party and leave the other feeling a sense of despair. I can’t seen anything funny in that.


#438

No idea on why he was cleared. Acquitted, not guilty, whatever. Neither, it appears, do you. So " Didn’t Cookie’s mate from ACP get fingered for enjoying himself at the expense of young acting students?" (an unfortunate choice of one particular word, fwiw) isn’t accurate in any way at all, including the alleged victim.


#439

Errrrr…

The Joan Jet/Kirner was the best one.


#440

You sound like WADA.
