  1. I went to Hokkaido in Japan, I didn’t understand anything but the rest of
    my family knew I was all like IM JAPANESE BUT I DONT KNOW HOW TO SPEAK IN

  2. Not to be mean… but why on Earth people do stupid things just to get
    people’s attention. And who wants to bury themselves alive!

  3. At 7 years old I saw Tommy Cooper die on stage in 1984. Me and my
    grandparents thought it was part of the act and laughed hysterically.
    Stumbling around and messing up his act for comedy effect was just the kind
    of spontanious silly antics Cooper would get up. It was only on the ‘News
    At 10’ report the same night we dicovered the sad reality of his death.
    Needless to say it has always been one of the most haunting things I’ve
    ever seen. Tommy Cooper was a legend, I would much rather remember him as a
    very funny comic gemius taken too soon.
