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.
However, you can always rely on Twitter to come up with the goods and members of the social networking site have been out in full force tweeting their reactions to the news. Here are 5 of the best.
He’s just been stuck on the tube…haven’t we all?
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?
He’s a poet, and he didn’t know it
Everything is always improved with a little poetry. Even the death of a peer.
Up wiv da angles
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!
DWP find him “fit for work”
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.
