Isn’t it weird how you come across something that, for some silly reason, has you howling with laughter?
Well, that’s what happened to me at Chapter’s bookshop in Vancouver today. I was just browsing around, as you do, when I picked up a book called Goners, which lists the very final hours or minutes of some very famous people, and how they passed away, etc.
Take the section about Elvis and how there are still people who think he is alive. Shortly after his death, a former employee of the Elvis estate was asked if he was sure Elvis had passed away. To which the guy replied, “Absolutely. I was the one who stuffed those cotton wool balls up his ass when he was being embalmed…..”
And then when Randolph Scott’s son was asked about whether Cary Grant had an affair with his dad. Scott’s son replied, “they examined dad’s ass when he was in hospital and if he had had a homosexual affair with dad, it would have shown….you can tell”
After reading that, I was in an uncontrollable fit of giggling…so much so that I had to walk out of the store and get a hold of myself!
