Rest In Peace, Possum

“I was born with a priceless gift – the ability to laugh at the misfortunes of others.
Dame Edna Everage

The world just got a bit duller with the death of Dame Edna Everage.  Her creator, Barry Humphries, was a curious fellow with a number of views one might not find palatable.  But funnelled through his most famous character, he became not only acceptable but also acclaimed.  We could laugh at Dame Edna’s barbs, biases and bitchiness.  Like Archie Bunker, we saw our differences through Edna’s eyes – and found them outrageous.  Rest in peace, possum.
