When I first heard he had died, I didn't believe anybody. I didn't even believe the news until I saw it all over the internet and it hit me like a
car. It was the first celebrity that I grew up watching who died and it really did knock me back, I actually mourned, I mean proper mourned for this
guy and the worse part was that he was the same age as my father at the time (though Dad is now older).
I watched almost all his work and loved everyone, Drop Dead Fred being a film I watched when my own grandfather died to get out of the tears and
mourning and yes it worked. I only wished we would have more time with him mainly in a jealous way because he said in an interview that he wanted to
play Ebenezer Scrooge before he was too old to act anymore and that he would make a great Scrooge and I have to agree. Just imagine him as Scrooge on
film or stage it would've been awesome.
I still mourn this man to this very day and will mourn him for a very long time coming. This might just be a coincidence but the night he died I was
watching an episode of the Young Ones and his character said that when Rik died the world would mourn and cry they would say 'OH NO RIK IS DEAD' and
it felt nerve shaking.
RIP RIK MAYALL, THE ONLY MAN WHO COULD CALL YOU AN STINKY FAT SNOT FILLED PUSS BAG AND LEAVE YOU SMILING.
