’69 is the new 27’ Claim Bowie and Rickman
Move over the 27 Club, the new age for universally-loved and hugely talented people to die is 69, David Bowie and Alan Rickman have posthumously claimed.
In a joint statement, while both sniggering like little boys, they said: “We can’t think of the number 69 signifying anything else important, so it seemed like as good an age to die as any other. Louis Armstrong died at 69 as well – he could blow my trumpet any day.”
Their statement has sparked outrage in the oral sex community, while people everywhere have been trying to figure out how to make the phrase ‘Die Hard’ into a fittingly humorous tribute to the two men. They are still struggling with this endeavour.
In other, more positive news, Donald Trump is also 69, so…fingers crossed.
