Another celebrity passed away yesterday.
Barry Humphries, who famously dressed as the Australian Dame Edna Everage - died at the age of eighty-nine years old.
Dame Edna was brilliant. The act was on numerous TV projects during my childhood and beyond.
I'll always remember seeing an out of character Humphries being interviewed on a talk show when I was young and my father shedding light on the fact 'that's the man who is Dame Edna'.
She wasn't the only character Humphries dressed up as. There was also Sir Les Patterson, who was the yang to Everage's ying.
The coincidence that this world has lost both Lily Savage and Dame Edna within weeks of each other is not lost on me.
