Sorry I've no time for the extended foolishness, we're overdue at the SIL's birthday party.
And Syd Barrett, founder of Pink Floyd, was announced dead today at age 60 by a private spokesperson. No reason was given for his untimely demise. The spokesperson said that he died "several days ago," and the funeral was a private affair, so I'm assuming he died around Monday or thereabouts, and the funeral is already over.
Wot a complete barstard; he owed me 200 quid.
