Itsy-Bitsy RIP. Not!

As readers know, I am an avid reader of Daily Telegraph obituaries. The very best days for those with this hobby are those when a living person's obituary is accidentally published.

This happened this week to Paul Vance, writer of the song "It's an Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.

"Do you know what it's like to have grandchildren calling you and say, 'Grandpa, you're still alive?'" said 76-year-old Vance.
