David Quantick: happy to bro out with people who profit from and mock celebrity deaths

So, throughout all of this low-end farrago, David Quantick has been quite clear about one thing: people who post on websites about the deaths of celebrities are “sick” and “scum”. It’s an extreme position, but it’s one he’s been pretty constant about, so, clearly, it’s something he truly believes in.

If so, maybe D-Quan could explain why he’s Facebook friends with Scott Michaels, former gay lover of Graham Norton and maintainer of the “Find-A-Death” website?

Scott Michaels was formerly the man behind Grave Line Tours, a company that specialised in day trips where paying customers would be ghoulishly shown the spots where celebrities had perished, either at their own hands or the hands of others. Although Michaels didn’t set the company up, he was the man who changed the “five year’s since death” rule, meaning that stars who had just passed on could now have their deathsites trampled on by tourists. Indeed, Grave Line Tours’ traipsing over the locales of the OJ Murders made them a Thing of Note in the late 90s, and David Quantick is officially A-OK with this kind of behaviour. In fairness, Ron Goldman never gave a Daphne and Celeste album 9/10, so he probably deserved to die.

Findadeath.com is the, Quantick-friendship approved, site where he operates now though, and if you wanted to ghoul over the suicide of the chick who voiced all the female characters in the first couple of series of South Park, or wanted to play with yourself while reading about the deaths of freakshow performers, Findadeath has got you covered.

And, hey, why not follow some of the merchandise links? For instance, who wouldn’t want to buy a copy of Richard Jeni’s autopsy? These are the kind of qualities David Quantick looks for in his friends. What a noble and upstanding individual he is.

    If Quantick’s fellow TV Burp writer/my whigga Paul Hawksbee gets involved in this then I’m not gonna know who to root for.

    Jeni did a very funny riff on the plot implausibilities of Jaws: The Revenge. I miss him.

    All this^ because of who the guy has as a facebook “Friend?” Seriously? I’ve got Necro, Brotha Lynch Hung and Tech N9ne as “Friends” – that’s not to be taken as an endorsement of cannibalism, necrophilia, bestiality, sexual violence nor any of the other shit depicted in their records.

    A sense of perspective please.

    “…former gay lover of Graham Norton” – what? As opposed to “Former straight lover of Graham Norton”?

    Son, you’re racking up spats faster than a vintage footwear shop.

    You’ve got beef like early 80s Somerset cricket time. You’re bringing drama like Tom Stoppard. They should call you “van der Graaf generator” for the static you’re bringing.

    And so forth.

      I cause more grief than the death of Steven Wells

    It’s a slanging match, like two dope dealers on an internet date.
