If he died from being raped and murdered, would Kitty Dukakis support the death penalty for his killer?
The term "farrah Fawcetted" means to die the same day as someone more famous than you.

Stems from Farrah dying the same day in 2009 as Michael Jackson.
I didn't ask you to explain. My comment had nothing to do with that.
It was such a non sequitur that it was easy to assume you had misunderstood something in the post you quoted.
Ah, but this a J-worthy thing that someone should know. If Michael Dukakis had any chance of beating Bush I in 1988, he blew it with his answer to Bernard Shaw's question that many women regarded as cold and uncaring.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.

Or, by another reading, the reason why when you look up at the sky you are in all probability seeing an alien out there somewhere (or would be but for the resolution of your eyes, etc.)

Coolio, 59

His longtime manager Jarez Posey told US media the artist was at a friend's house and went to the bathroom, but was then found unresponsive on the floor.

Coolio started making music in the 1980s, but he cemented his place in hip hop history when he recorded Gangsta's Paradise in 1995.
