    Well, Tears for souvenirs are what he's left us with - tears of laughter over the years.
    Tatty bye Doddy, Tatty bye!
    R.I.P Ken - true legend.

    I think it was simply the third best selling single of all time in the UK at one point.

    I remember meeting him in the very early 60s, Mum and Dad had taken myself and my sister on holiday to Blackpool, my sister was sat making sandcastles with her bucket and spade when Ken Dodd came walking up with a nice looking girl and a photographer and asked if he could borrow her bucket and spade, he was working on the pier and wanted some promo pics, after they had got the pictures he said stand under the pier and I will throw something down for you, he threw about 20 sticks of Blackpool Rock down, I saw him about 30 years later in Skegness, there was only one other person made me laugh more than Ken Dodd and that was Norman Wisdom.

    Yes, it probably must have been.

    Have to admit, even though I'd heard of it and thought I'd recognise it, just listened to it and didn't. Not my cup of tea, though.
