Subject: RE: Folklore: Gallows Humor-laughing at death/disease
Like Mr McCormick above, I too would probably despise Jade Goody if I knew her.

I have never watched Big Brother. I abominate any attempt to belittle basic human dignity, which is why I watched Noel Bloody Edmunds' House Party once. Seeing people get covered with gunge,

and hearing other people pissing themselves laughing at it, disgusted me.

I have similar distaste for the press and Ms Goody. If she is going to croak - and we are left in no doubt that she is - why can't she do it quietly ?
