The star of TV hit show The Kumars at No. 42 has been found 'inexplicably dead' at home.
Ashok Kumar MP, 53, was - coincidentally - the same age as the number of episodes of the cult BBC show about a fictional British Indian family.
The Ides of March death is being probed by a police Omens & Portents division given the sudden and unexplained nature of the demise.
And in a curious House of Conmmons tribute Speaker John Bercow described Kumar as 'a very fine chemical engineer' - perhaps in reference to the extraordinary magnetism the deceased had exuded during the eponymous hit TV show's immensely successful run.
Apparently he was a chemical engineer by trade, so was probably knocking up a batch of LSD or Methamphetamine when it back fired.
"A Distinguished Supporter of the British Humanist Association he also supported the Labour Friends of Israel Dr Kumar listed his interests as cricket, badminton, reading history and listening to jazz."
can't have been all bad then. an anti god botherer and pro Israeli as well.
Still thats one less new labourite, which is never a bad thing.
I don't mind the taking the mickey out of someone who has died, to be honest. Not like they know what they are being called. It was the considered views of vanman, shiny, seaweed that made me think that perhaps a better home for this thread would be the NAAFI. You know, what with us having a specific forum for these kind of jokes there.
