Heath Ledger dead: jokes here please

Photograph of Heath Ledger

Yes, Australian actor Heath Ledger is dead, possibly from a drug overdose. So now it’s time to collect all the jokes, ‘cos he can’t sue you for libel. Please add them in the comments.

Tasteless? Yes. Exploitative? Probably. Too soon for this? Yeah probably that too.

So why do it?

It’s an experiment…

More than a year after the event, a collection of jokes about Steve Irwin’s death is still one of the most heavily-visited pages on this website. More than half of the searches bringing people here are for Corey Worthington Delaney.

Tasteless is what you want, so tasteless is what you’ll get.

We’ll even throw in the phrases “heath ledger porn” and “heath ledger naked” to help things along. Index that, Google!

The comments will be moderated, but not heavily. They may take a while to show up because — oddly enough! — there are other things to do.

[Update: Scroll down to find the comments thingy. Try to spell properly. And if you’re going to whinge that “It’s too soon to make jokes,” then at least suggest how long someone has to be dead before they’re not sacred any more. And try to spell properly.]

[Update 27 January 2008: The two rules about relevance are now being enforced. Comments will not be published if (1) they repeat jokes which have already been posted, unless they’re substantial improvements, or (2) they’re just some anti-gay comment that doesn’t have any relevance.]

[Update 3 January 2009: Comments have now been closed. See my very last comment for the reasons.]

  1. He was apparently scheduled to have a massage in his apartment this afternoon.

    Guess he didn’t get the happy ending.

  2. you’re all assholes, he died three hours ago! you could have waited a little to start this. or never put it up at all….

  3. Apparently Heath Ledger tried to borrow a book on suicide from his local Library, but the librearian wouldnt let him take it, as she didnt think he’d bring it back….

  4. Accountants from the new Batman movie are in a state of panic today. Reports indicate they have lost a Ledger. Police are looking for a man wearing a cowboy hat and Face paint.

  5. Today, critics allegations were confirmed, Heath Ledger is a stiff actor.

    They say he is a good actor but Heath Ledger’s last performance was a little hard to swallow.

    Anyway, I don’t believe Heath Ledger ate all those pills to commit suicide… He was found in Mary Kate’s apartment. She’s anorexic so chances are the dude was just REALLY hungry……..

  6. He thought about jumping off the building but realised no-one was interested in seeing Brokeback again.

  7. Whats the difference between Neil Armstrong and Heath Ledger?
    Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon… Heath Ledger is dead…

    Come on… Its harsh but its true…

  8. This one is a visual pun……

    Grim Repear stands with heath ledger in front of him and yells, “you morons, I said bring me the DEATH LEDGER”.

  9. We’ve got to work this Batman angle a bit. Help me people.. We can do better than those below…

    I don’t want to make false accusations, but sources say they saw a dark, shadowy figure (much like a man dressed as a large bat) leaving Heath’s building.

    The ledger reads:
    Batman 1
    Joker 0

    How can Batman defeat the Joker?
    With a handful of sleeping pills.

  10. Word is he was depressed. I guess he took “10 things I hate about you” a little too seriously…..
