    But why did they want us to believe that Rowan Atkinson was dead? I thought he was really dead in real life it's pretty not a funny joke to tell the whole world that their favourate actor is dead mean while he is still alive,it's very mean and shame on those people who made us believe this BIG LIE

    Who does this kind of bad joke? He is such a person that everybody can boast of and he is the ultimate source of sparkling wit and humour that is interspersed with rib tickling comedy.
