Yeah, yeah, the old autocorrect excuse, Olide isn't even English, it's Latin for evil-smelling or fetid. Which was possibly her odour at 104.

Come on folks. Not funny. I wasn't a fan because she was before my time and probably before the time of almost everyone on this forum. But her death shouldn't be the source of a load of wisecracks.

I have an aunt who is 108 and Id hate to think her death might be met by these types of comments.

To be fair, Veem, we don't know your aunt.

Did you know Olivia well enough to call her smelly? No? I didn't think so. Go sit on the naughty step and reflect on your actions.
