Twitter Reacts In Typically Ironic Fashion To Lord Lucan’s Death Annoucement!

In the news today it was announced that finally, 40 years after he went missing Lord Lucan can finally be pronounced dead.

It was a case that shocked and stunned the nation at the time, when the peer disappeared without trace after allegedly murdering his children’s nanny. Since then, there have been numerous claims of sightings, but none ever confirmed and it still remains one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of the last century.

We’ve all been there. In fact many of us probably still are. Stuck on the train/tube waiting and waiting for something to happen…an announcement…anything “Lord Lucan’s dead!” “No he isn’t, he’s been sat next to me on the Northern Line since 1974, trying to get home after a night out. His chips have gone cold though”

Always the last place you look!

It’s always the last place you look isn’t it? In fact, have the Lucan family actually checked to see if he’s hiding in a grotty brown envelope in a suitcase, in the back of a cupboard somewhere?

Oh we love it when someone combines the stupidity of Facebook, with the slickness of Twitter. This is one of the best tweets we’ve seen. Improved even more by the addition of the Freddie Mercury picture. Brilliant!

There will never be a time when this particular DWP tweet will not be funny. It was hilarious when they attached it to Richard III and it’s hilarious now.
