So:

  • Kiddly fiddler?
  • Corpse toucher?
  • Other? (please specify)
  • All of the above?

Your mum.

MadamZsaZsa - 29 Oct 2011 15:17:54 (#23 of 17198)

His mum.

CaptainBlack - 29 Oct 2011 15:18:39 (#24 of 17198)

He and the Duchess can be together again at last.

Mate, you might want to delete the RL names there.

Piscineaste - 29 Oct 2011 15:24:00 (#27 of 17198)

Aah, you already did.

MorningCloud - 29 Oct 2011 15:27:02 (#28 of 17198)

#26 yeah, quickly realised i'd pasted them.

Another post on Twitter:

RIP SirJim A great man with nothing but love in his body.

JollityFarm - 29 Oct 2011 15:27:43 (#29 of 17198)

No organs or blood or stuff?

This on Twitter:

Thank you for the tracksuits. An archive to be proud of.

Jacob_Richter - 29 Oct 2011 15:31:12 (#32 of 17198)

He was devoted to his mum.

RosyLovelady - 29 Oct 2011 15:33:19 (#33 of 17198)

Just like the Krays.

RosyLovelady - 29 Oct 2011 15:33:38 (#34 of 17198)

And Mark Thatcher.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 15:34:52 (#35 of 17198)

D'you remember back in the 60's when he made that record "Ahab the Arab"? That suddenly came back to me

was he really a corpse toucher?

urbanspacemonkey - 29 Oct 2011 15:35:09 (#36 of 17198)

He claimed to have been the first DJ to use twin turntables, the entire hiphop community is in his debt.

Electro - 29 Oct 2011 15:36:12 (#37 of 17198)

He was a staunch supporter of Margaret Thatcher and spent 11 successive New Years with the former prime minister at Chequers!

I remember Ahab the Ayrab, LadyDi. It was a very stupid song, with racial stereotyping which was offensive even in those far-off times.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 15:39:41 (#39 of 17198)

Wasn't he called in to talk to Charles and Di and try and stop them from divorcing?

I'd have jumped out of the window

MorningCloud - 29 Oct 2011 15:42:42 (#40 of 17198)

Wasn't he called in to talk to Charles and Di and try and stop them from divorcing?

It takes some imagination to think of SirJim as the answer to a failing marriage. Or perhaps we've misjudged him.

LadyDi - 29 Oct 2011 15:47:51 (#41 of 17198)

Perhaps the Queen misjudged him?
