He might have died anyway. Its not really clear if people are dying with coronavirus or from coronavirus.
If someone dies from an unrelated heart attack but it turns out they had coronavirus should that count as a coronavirus death?
|>>|| No. 23530
It's not mental gymnastics. Someone having coronavirus at the time of death doesn't necessarily mean they died because of coronavirus.

I guess we're gonna need a mega thread for dead celebrities in the next few months.

Whatever happened to the Rotten Dead Pool?
rottendeadpool.com is offline, and trying to access its parent site rotten.com, I just get a timeout error.
|>>|| No. 23579
Yes, but maybe a Corona Dead Pool would be a way to pass the time during lockdown. And make some money, in these times of sudden record unemployment.
|>>|| No. 23600
Another victim of nominative determinism, I see.

It's somewhat safe saying that this is officially now the .gs coronavirus celebrity death

Look on the bright side, I've never heard any rumours he is a filthy paedo. Give it time I guess.

Some people look old before their time. Maggie Smith doesn't appear to have aged much in the past thirty years because she could have passed for being in her seventies when she was in her fifties.

As much as I dislike the man, I don't wish him dead. That's a bit too edgy for even our resident teenlad,
|>>|| No. 23804
I don't wish him dead because death in office will galvanise him as the hero of Britain when really all he did was manage to kill a load of pensioners through inaction.
|>>|| No. 23806
Fair. I don't imagine I will either, it just feels a bit... well, inhumane to cheer his almost certainly painful death (should that occur).
|>>|| No. 23808
You know when people go "Boris isn't actually that bad. He's happy to go along with the Tory genocide of the poor and infirm that's been underway since 2010 but he wouldn't have actually initiated it himself." ? Well this is the same thing.
|>>|| No. 23809
Where is the punchline in the sentiment "I hope this cunt dies"? It just sounds like someone trying to be edgy. I doubt he'll be missed, but actively cheering a man's death is morally subterranean.
Of course, I was merely pretending to be outraged. Check mate.
|>>|| No. 23810
Hoping someone dies is not necessarily morally bankrupt, it depends on your reasoning. If it's "I hope he dies because I wanted Jezza to be PM" then you're a cunt, if its "I hope he dies as retribution for the pain and suffering he has caused" then you're still a cunt, but morally grey at least.
I just don't like his hair.
|>>|| No. 23811
>I doubt he'll be missed, but actively cheering a man's death is morally subterranean.
Fuck off. He has killed hundreds of thousands, or even millions of people. May he burn in hell.
|>>|| No. 23813
I don't subscribe to your idea that a joke requires a punchline and literally nobody said that until you provoked them with your the shipping forecast.
|>>|| No. 23815
A joke requires that it fit some theme though, through which the intent of the author is communicated in a manner which is and understood and makes its target audience laugh. Unless the joke was for an audience of one, the author, in which case why feel the need to share it?
Who was the target audience for a "joke" which is merely a vitriolic rant about someone's hope that a man dies a painful and needless death? In all my experience of stand up, it's not a theme that often, if ever, gets performed on stage.
|>>|| No. 23817
You're thinking about jokes as a medium rather than a concept.
Also no tory death is needless.
|>>|| No. 23818
The point is you seem to be confusing Boris with Teresa May and David Cameron, unless you're blaming Boris for what is clearly the fault of 5G and GM crops.
|>>|| No. 23820
>unless you're blaming Boris for what is clearly the fault of 5G and GM crops.
He still let the 5G happen innit.
|>>|| No. 23843
The "punchline" is that it's not what you're supposed to say. The setup is the standard social norm of not speaking ill of the dying.
>actively cheering a man's death is morally subterranean.
Everyone says this when it's a man they think is basically innocent. It's not a position I'm fond of - everyone has a few Hitler's that they're glad died. Johnson isn't one of mine, but It's been fun watching - say - Hartley-Brewer go off about how bad it is to celebrate a man's death, then turn around and go "Yes, of course I stand by my tweets celebrating the death of Fidel Castro. He was a bad man."
|>>|| No. 23845
Her being an insufferable hypocrite is besides the point. Boris is incompetent as a leader and merely a useful instrument for the lobby groups who steer govt policy to ensure a political environment where they flourish.
The systematic attacks on the poor in the last 10 years came from the like of IDS, Teresa May, George Osborne and Fuckwit Hammond. Boris could well be the Priminister that killed a million people by not looking down the country, and many people will be glad he is dead, but we're not there yet.
But if he does die, all the cabinet ministers he was instructed to raise to prominence in the Govt will be and charge and the corporate cronies will be running the country. I'd rather fucking Gove in charge than Raab.

>>23849 There's a wetransfer link in amongst the batshit comments.
I liked this one:
"Dude are you kidding me? It's proven that 5g has many health issue u tard. Now i don't think the virus is fake. Theres deff a real sars2. But i see the point he was making that everyone is being classified with the virus n the test comes up positive for many coronavirus's. But you are stupid if you think the 5g towers don't hurt ppl. It's been proven u jackass. So before u say stupid shit like that, do your fucking research."
|>>|| No. 23851
What if I wish him dead because it seems evident that if he survives he'll continue to cause the death and suffering of others? No revenge, no lob-on for Corbyn, just pure ethical utility.
|>>|| No. 23855
>>23850 well, it's downloaded and seems to be what it promised - 2.5 hours of Are Icke being interviewed.

The only good Tory is a dead Tory.
Fuck off back to clapping for are postmen or whatever it is now.
|>>|| No. 23857
I could but as the other poster says, that's currently a lot less likely to happen. Either way, my "wishing" has no impact on what will actually happen so it's not really a moral problem issue. We can debate whether or not actually killing him would be a moral act; thoughts and prayers are moot.

If it was up to me your type would still be working in my family's mill or choking down a mine somewhere you loathesome oik.
|>>|| No. 23861
Thankfully, it's not up to you, but it has been up to your type for the past 30-odd years. And your type sold all the mills and coal mines my family would have been working in, didn't they.
Broken Britain is your responsibility. You've been dumping shit out of your own living room window for the last 30 years, and for some reason you think the resulting pile of fetid human excrement stinking up your garden is the bloke across the street's fault.
|>>|| No. 23862
Well the bloke across the street gets paid to clean it up, ever since the mine closed. I'm a JOB CREATOR unlike you, you feckless cretin. Good money he gets as it happens, bloody ungrateful.
If it wasn't for me he wouldn't even have a job.
|>>|| No. 23865
Two edits of a bland response to a blatant shitpost and you still can't get the punctuation right. Is it steam from your ears or is a coal mine a bit above your station?
Binmen are doing better than the self employed right now, with their fancy overalls and big bastard lorry. All I have is shit to dump out of my living room window and memories of all the mills my dad sold.
|>>|| No. 23876
You can't count, and there's nothing wrong with the punctuation. Are public schools worse than the comprehensives or is all the inbreeding just making you stupid?
|>>|| No. 23877
Glad to see you at least used a question mark this time. Jolly good old chap. Pip pip.
|>>|| No. 23878
You only use question marks when you're asking an actual question though, don't you, you spacker.
|>>|| No. 23879
> Thankfully, it's not up to you, but it has been up to your type for the past 30-odd years. And your type sold all the mills and coal mines my family would have been working in, didn't they.
You obviously didn't realise you asked a question, did you?.
|>>|| No. 23885
Not that guy, but you obviously didn't realise rhetorical questions do not need to be punctuated with a question mark.
Though I can tell by your last reply that punctuation isn't your forte.

Just found out that Bucky Pizzarelli has died. He was 94 so it's hardly unexpected, but it's always a shitter when one of the legends dies.

Apparently it's optional. I live and learn.

It appears this one can't be chalked up to the coronavirus though. Wikipedia says he died after "a long illness".

John Conway, renowned mathematician and inventor of the Game Of Life, has been taken in the US. Was actually a scouser.

If it was one of Penn and Teller I might care.
If Teller got it, how would he tell us?
|>>|| No. 24741
He would let his partner pen(n) a press release.
Self sage for less than mildly funny pun.
