    such a shame, loved Orville when i was a kid, RIP
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    I saw him drive away from the hospital just the other day and thought he was looking old.

    I used to see him in a bar near South Pier in Blackpool when I was up that way visiting my parents. Seemed an ok chap, and he did like chatting up the girlies.

    It's a shame. I suppose us kids of the 70-80s will start seeing tv celebs from our 'golden' era start popping their clogs, such is life. I've delivered Candles to a shop Bob Calgees owns on a number of occasions. Feels very strange when it's someone you watched on the TV years ago!

    I fucking hated Orvil and i couldnt stand a second of that fucking Monkey.

    Sad to see a nice guy go, but I cant say he's going to be a legend in entertainment for me.
