That would be overkill. You will have to choose one out of the two.


Ooh! Please pick me!! :D

throat cancer? a rare and comical death for a rare and comical man...


Spine cancer wasn't it? That was why he spent his last days in a wheelchair.

*sigh* I suppose I'd choose him too. It was worth a shot though, wasn't it?

I always thought it was spinal? Cancer that is, not tap.

Bit ironical about the wheelchair because he once pretended to have been suddenly paralysed to irritate the staff of a hotel he did not quite like.

That makes sense. You're probably right.

from http://orangecow.org/pythonet/graham-chapman.html


" Tragically, Chapman was diagnosed with cancer of the tonsils in 1988. "

I remember reading something else about his cancer somewhere and now its really annoying be because I cant find it........

ah, well there you go.

LOL! I just found this on wikipedia which seems to clear up everything:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graham_Chapman#Death

"Chapman died at the age of 48 on 4 October 1989, of pneumonia brought about by the throat cancer which had metastasised to his spine"

so.... we were all right, in a way.

i love wikipedia.[/i]
