Well, that sucks.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

I met him at the Edinburgh Fringe about 15 years ago? Really nice, genuine guy, intelligent and articulate, self-effacing. Turns out he is/was a massive fan of Belle & Sebastian, and I was able to hook him up with a meeting with Stuart and Stevie from the band.

He also had a terrible thirst about him, which seems to be what has done for him, if the word on the street is correct. He had been in hospital recently being treated for cirrhosis.
