    Gary Coleman Dead..

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Halcyon, May 28, 2010.

    Hi guys.

    I've just read that Gary Coleman, who famously played Arnold Jackson in the 1970s/80s US sitcom "Different Strokes", has died of a brain haemorrhage after an accident at his home in Utah.

    The show was a great favorite of mine, and his catchprase "What you talking 'bout, Willis?" will live forever in my memory.

    RIP. Gary. :(

    They were very close-mouthed about his condition, so I'm not terribly surprised. He has had many health and personal problems over the years.

    Something I wrote while drunk just now:

    Whatchoo talkin’ ‘bout, Willis?
    Whatchoo rappin’ ‘bout, Bones?
    What the dilly yo, Dylan?
    Where the weed at, holmes?

    What’s it all about, my nizzle?
    Who’s that whore in your arms?
    Where’s the beef, my brother?
    Who’s after me Lucky Charms?

    Whatchoo talkin’ bout Willis?
    You like it when I touch you there?
    Who’s your daddy, Willis?
    Que se produit, mon frère?

    Who let the dogs out, Willis?
    Where’d all the stars come from?
    Why does it hurt to live, Willis?
    When will the Rapture come?

    What we all talkin’ ‘bout, Willis?
    When will the nightmares end?
    Hold me close to you, Willis.
    Hold me tight, my friend.

    Edgar Alan Poe said that the death of a beautiful woman is without a doubt the most poetical thing in the world. I contend that there is nothing so poetical as the death of a famous, angry midget.

    Slam dunk man. Set that to a youtube picture parade of Gary Coleman and, rough estimate, 8 million views. :)
