i am trolled

When trying desperately to distract myself from international document delivery and the Department of Homeland Security, I like to dabble in the Usenet newsgroups aus.motorcycles. They got me a bewdy this morning with a post to the effect that Billy Connolly had been killed in a bike crash. My heart sank for the big yin before a Google News search and visit to his official Web site revealed a certain, shall we say, dearth of veracity in the rumour.

As the aus.moto crew said, don’t believe it until you read the memorial haiku. My favourite was Bigman’s lightning adaptation of the well-known hippo classic:

Billy Connolly
Anti-Billy Connolly

I believe I mentioned this in the first ever post to Yatima, but it bears repeating: My brother, he is funny.
