British actor Frank Thorton died of mustache failure at the spry age of 92.

He was best known for his role of Captain Peacock in the long-running BBC comedy series “Are You Being Served?” which ran from 1972 to 1985.

Thornton was incredibly British.  Born in London, served as an airman in the RAF, hell, he was even in “GosfordPark.”

To further prove his Britishness, he appeared on “The Benny Hill Show.”  I assuming it was an episode that quickly devolved into a wacky situation where a horny old man is chasing a bikini-clad babe to the subtle strains of “Yakety Sax.”

If he’s not Butthead’s father, then I don’t know who the hell is!

But most importantly, his head was shaped just like Butthead’s head.  Butthead was clearly his bastard child.  When contacted for comment, Butthead added “Heh heh.  Heh heh.  Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh-heh.  Heh heh.  Heh heh…. You said ‘bastard’.”

This hit goes to: Dawn-n-Mike (but mostly Mike)!  Yes, they further solidify their lead with an extra 10 points.  Interestingly enough, not their smallest hit.

New Dick in Town in 40 points behind and that’s where he’s gonna stay, damnit!

And, just so you know, The Globe reported MONTHS ago that Nancy Reagan had given up and was dying.  If I can’t believe the good people at The Globe, that who can I believe?

Happy Pooling,
