The coffin on display thing is quite common for Catholics. It's usually at the home of the deceased, but as he lived alone, that wouldn't be practical. In Ireland, you might have the coffin on display at the Funeral home, and the family / friends would be expected to go and sit with the deceased for a while before the funeral mass. Or at least, take a walk past. It's a practice that gives me the heebie-jeebies to be honest, as the Irish (either side of the border) tend not to embalm the deceased. Requesting that you're on display in a public place is a bit beyond the norm tho.

Yeah, we do the coffin thing in my family. Not in a public place though - in the house or the funeral parlour - and the family come by and mooch around near the dead person talking and stuff. I thought it would freak me out but we had my dad in the front room with the coffin open for a night and it didn't upset me at all. It was just dad - except he was dead.  I sat with him for a couple of hours and had a 'chat'.
We did the same with my uncle, but with the coffin closed. 

Maybe Jimmy Savile felt really loved and wanted people to be able to say goodbye to him. I would like to think that only friends and family would go though - it would be a bit ghoulish for Joe Public to wander in, would it not?

Well I think I wandered onto the forum page of the Guardian there for a minute, I haven't seen so much righteous angst since Thatcher withdrew free milk.

  That'll teach me that the internet is no place for conjecture, opinion and personal anecdote, albeit one person removed.

I find the coffin on display thing extremely tacky and very very disturbing that people are going to file past it. are people truly that sad??? bizarre and as for Sir Cliff - I know a person who knows a person who......etc.....smoke and fire eh?? and while we're at it - let's throw Colin Jackson into the "which side of the fence is he on" mix. plenty of innuendo there as well, if not some known facts....... I'm damn sure there are skeletons in many a salacious cupboard - it keeps the redtops busy

Colin Jackson is pretty much a done deal isn't it?

Unless you're talking about him being a necrophiliac paedophile with an Oedipus complex.

The one who I've never been sure about is that Gary Glitter...must be something funny going on there!


   Speaking of Colin Jackson is this a bad time to say I know a guy at work whose brother orally pleasured him. Allegedly obviously, I wouldn't want to kick anything off on here.....

Azacaya.........I would think friends and family would prefer a more private place to mourn and say goodbye..........seems a very strange thing to ask to be done...........I imagine loads of the public will go because the are hooked on celebrity and by showing grief for a stanger they can somehow believe that they are someone important themselves.......instead of the saddo they are...like putting flowers at someone famous house hen they have died..........if they really knew them they would be allowed in the house..........how sad to want to publically mourn someone you never knew

Orally pleasured him?

You mean he told him a joke?

We had that Sally Gunnell give us a talk at work once. I asked her what was the greatest hurdle she'd faced in her career.

And i used to go out with that Fatima Whitbread until she chucked me.

Seren - Celebrity culture is crap isn't it?
And with that, I think I'll leave the Jimmy Savile thread.
Thank you, RW forum for keeping me up to date with the news. I had no idea that
a) Jimmy Savile was dead, or
b) there were rumours about him being and old perv.

And I had to google Colin Jackson to see who he was too.

I'm struggling to see the connection between Colin Jackson and a brotherly hummer.

"And i used to go out with that Fatima Whitbread until she chucked me."

FW goes to the Doctors: "I'm worried about all the hair growing on my chest"

GP: How far does it go??

FW: all the way down to my bollocks.



I thank you......

anyhoo - once the old perv (allegedly) is buried, no doubt the press will be publishing some kiss and tell stories about him.

we shall see....

Oh come off it.  That's a Chris Morris script, not an outtake.

Now it's clear who you are. You're Jay from the Inbetweeners aren't you.

Erm.....

On the edge of my seat.

That HIGNFY transcript just reads as complete fantasy ?
They can't even spell Savile right ?
And no way would the audience be laughing at such awkward and plain nasty stuff ?

Deayton got fired from HIGNFY partly for a bad Savile joke about the dead mother. I doubt even Merton could get away scot free with that attack and it just doesn't sound like him.

A bit of googling shows that the piece was dismissed as a hoax and was removed from one site for fear of libel action ?

In the spirit of HIGNFY surely one should say allegedly at the end of every sentence.
