DING DULL!!

We know: Great minds think alike

A stale trope is flying through the J-blogosphere faster than the sniffles in a pre-school.

A partial list of the ding dongs:

Bonus points to LGF for misusing the phrase "crocodile tears" (Unless, of course, he meant to compliment Jacque Chirac, which I rather doubt.?)

*sigh*

The thing is, it's really hard to come up with something tasteful about death.

Even for Arafat.

Sounds like a nice contest though:
Best Snarky Title for Arafat's Passing.

Two possible snarky comments:

1. There was many a dry eye when Arafat died. (Derived from one of R.A. Lafferty's Camiroi stories.)

2. Afarat's passing leaves a much-needed gap in the Mideast. (I don't recall the origin of the phrase.)
