Goodnight, possums

Emily Perry, known to the world as Dame Edna's sidekick Madge Allsop, has passed away at age 100.

The BBC article on her passing is here.

Barry Humphries's (Dame Edna himself, or herself) tribute to Perry is here.

I saw Edna on her "Royal Tour" a few years back. The man/woman was hilarious. Madge wasn't touring with her anymore by this point, but she made an appearance in the opening video. She never said a word, but she always managed to make you laugh. She will be missed.
