In late, but got that one Bonnie.

True story - a Yorkshire man's wife died and he ordered the headstone with the engraving
'Lord She was Thine' - when it arrived it was not uncovered until everyone was there for the service.

They uncovered it, and someone had left a letter out. It now read 'Lord She was Thin' (❀ᴗ❀)

And the answer is................That’s all folks

Melvin Jerome Blanc (May 30, 1908 – July 10, 1989) was an American voice actor and radio personality. After beginning his over-60-year career performing in radio, he became known for his work in animation as the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, Sylvester the Cat, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Marvin the Martian, Pepé Le Pew, Speedy Gonzales, Wile E. Coyote, Road Runner, the Tasmanian Devil, and many of the other characters from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies theatrical cartoons during the golden age of American animation. He voiced all of the major male Warner Bros. cartoon characters except for Elmer Fudd, whose voice was provided by fellow radio personality Arthur Q. Bryan, although Blanc later voiced Fudd, as well, after Bryan's death.
He later voiced characters for Hanna-Barbera's television cartoons, including Barney Rubble on The Flintstones and Mr. Spacely on The Jetsons. Blanc was also the original voice of Woody Woodpecker for Universal Pictures and provided vocal effects for the Tom and Jerry cartoons directed by Chuck Jones for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, replacing William Hanna. During the golden age of radio, Blanc also frequently performed on the programs of famous comedians from the era, including Jack Benny, Abbott and Costello, Burns and Allen and Judy Canova.
Having earned the nickname The Man of a Thousand Voices, Blanc is regarded as one of the most influential people in the voice acting industry.
Blanc began smoking cigarettes when he was nine years old. He continued his pack-a-day habit until he was diagnosed with emphysema, which pushed him to quit at age 77. On May 19, 1989, Blanc was checked into Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles by his family when they noticed he had a bad cough while shooting a commercial; he was originally expected to recover. Blanc's health then took a turn for the worse and doctors found that he had advanced coronary artery disease. He died on July 10 at Cedars-Sinai, at the age of 81. He is interred in Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood. Blanc's will stated his desire to have the inscription on his gravestone read, "That's all folks", the phrase that was the hallmark of Blanc's character, Porky Pig.

Poor Arthur, I thought that you could only get paid if you were mentioned in the credits? I may be way off the mark here.

PutterDutt

Me, neither.

wjl1015

I never had Heidi. :((

PutterDutt

That's sad.

Surreal_Heidi

Yes it is, grannie, but please don't give it away to people who don't know.

I was a massive fan of Mel Blanc's until I heard about what his ego did to Arthur Q. Bryan. Arthur voiced Elmer Fudd in all of the best Bugs and Elmer cartoons. But you will never see his name in the credits. Mel had it in his contract that his was the only name to be listed as a voice artist in the credits of any cartoon he did. So while Mel did MOST of the voices, Arthur never got credit for his brilliant interpretation of Elmer Fudd in anything. Sad, really. And not fair. I've seen Arthur Q. Bryan in a few funny movies and adored him. But thanks to Mel, most people have never heard of him.

I THINK I KNOW....NOT SURE ...............T....A...F........?????

manicpuzzler

Maybe that's why his name is 'Stupid'.

nanab

I know this one.
DUI?

manicpuzzler

Yes Ellen I thought so too, maybe a car accident? Well done :))

Well done Robin :))

Some more etchings on gravestones ……………

My mother-in-law’s chicken really IS “to die for”

I’m finally thin….maybe a little too thin.

I was so loaded I didn’t know it was loaded.

This is NOT what I had in mind when I said,
“Over my dead body!”

I guess you could say I’ve found my niche.

You should see the other guy.
