Just for Fun: Meet two icons of American humor: Laurel and Hardy. Somebody must have wanted to put a smile on the faces of all who came to visit. "He died of a Tuesday." That was the answer Laurel gave to Lola in the film Way Out West when she asked what her "dear Daddy" had died of. The film was made in 1937 and this fan died sixty years later, in 1997. Lake dear Daddy, he, too, died of a Tuesday. Such foolishness! Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
