Today marks the 701st anniversary of the tragic death of Mel Gibson. The great mad maximillian finally met his gruesome end at Smithfields scaffold in old London town. He was executed after being found guilty of distorting the truth, over-acting, having bad hair and being in possession of the worse Scottish accent ever.
During his final speech atop the scaffold, Gibson thanked his Mom, Dad, therapist, drama coach, the Pope, Jesus and especially God. He didn’t blame anyone for his capture – apart from the English, all Englishmen, anyone from England, all the people living in England and Mike England, the former Welsh centre half footy player. With that, the great antipodean thesp’, drunkard and anti-semite was hung, drawn and quartered.
But even with his body in 4 bits, his guts and dangly bits gently roasting on the nearby fire, the star of Lethal Weapons' 1 to 56 still managed a last desperate gasp. Gibson was heard to shout the word "Freedom" – although some people thought he said "Free Willy" or possibly "Buy one get one free"
We shall never forget him.
