Oh dear Telegraph

The comedy genius behind Monty Python’s Terry Jones has been diagnosed with dementia.

Given the subject of the announcement there would just have to be something comic about it, wouldn’t there?

  1. The comedy genius behind Monty Python’s Terry Jones has been diagnosed with dementia.

    So . . . his wife then?

    I don’t think this particular sentence is comic. Its not even a non sequitur. Its just nonsense. Especially since the rest of the article describes the situation correctly and its just this one piece.

    What are they paying their editors for though?

  2. Unless we can get some sort of treatment for Alzheimers etc, or we continue to try to intervene to stop people from dying from all the other killer conditions, western society in its current form is fvcked unless nature steps in.

  4. I’m suspicious of this quote from the BBC report:

    “The National Aphasia Association describes primary progressive aphasia as a neurological syndrome in which language capabilities become slowly and progressively impaired.”

    I think they’d be more likely to say something like “It’s a sort of, ummmm… thingy where you, er, kind of… ummmm… forget… errr… words”.

  5. I don’t think punctuation is taught at schools now. Such strict rules interfere with pupils creativity, or some such claptrap.

  6. I doubt a Telegraph editor went to a sink estate comprehensive.

    But you can only teach punctuation. Whether they learn it is a different story.

  7. A bloke I know said that if he ever got dementia I should shoot him.

    So he got dementia. And I shot him. In both knees.

    I never liked him.

    Best thing is he is incapable of telling the police it was me.

  8. Having watched my mother deteriorate from dementia I would take my own life without hesitation if I received the same diagnosis later in life.
