Reading your own obituary

Paul Vance who wrote "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" was watching TV and was a mite alarmed to be told he had died!

Apparently Paul Van Valkenburg told his wife that he wrote it as a teenager under a pseudonym but sold the rights. When he died his wife told the press that the writer of Itsy..... had died.

His family were ringing up believing there father had died!!

My Nana always used to scan the Hatches Matches and Dispatches to see if she was in. One night there was a Dorothy Clark. She nearly died.
