Apparently there was a thing on the internet some time ago (I am always late to these trends) where teenagers would say to their middle-aged parents that celebrities who were alive and well had died. The parents would be shocked and horrified “Dolly Parton is dead?!” Their heartless children would then record their reactions and put it on the internet. Mildly funny.
Slightly related herself told me when Justin Trudeau and his wife split up. They had actually split up. “Oh no,” said I, “I am absolutely gutted.” “You and all of Canada,” she said. Alas.
