Imponderable #127: The Strange Death of Dwarf Ramsay

15 Feb

February 15, 2016

This is old news. It is from 2011 but just this weekend popped up on my Facebook feed. (That’s an Imponderable right there.)


To recap: Percy Foster, dwarf-porn lookalike of Chef Gordon Ramsay, died under what is being understated as “bizarre circumstances.” He was found partially eaten in a badger hole. Crack investigators have not ruled out suicide.



All I know is, if there is a better headline than “Gordon Ramsay’s dwarf porn star lookalike found dead in badger den half eaten” I haven’t read it.

With all his money, he’s buying a soda stream? Jeez, if you can afford a BMW you can afford name-brand soda.
Why couldn’t he buy Pepsi?
The question is Imponderable.

    Sometimes we need a better word than “imponderable.”

      Yeah, that’s an understatement in this case.

      And if anyone is wondering, I had no interest at all in doing further research to see how this turned out.

        Aren’t you a little worried about the badger?

          Well, the dwarf wasn’t much of a challenge, I figure the badger can take care of himself.


          I did a little more checking and found one article (and only one) that claimed that not only was the whole thing a hoax, but implied that the little guy (the dwarf, not the badger) didn’t even exist. In fact, it called him “the alleged dwarf.” There were no other articles other than a few that simply repeated the claims of the one I posted. The author of the skeptical article was more than a little snarky.


          There are more than enough pictures of Percy Foster online that prove that A- he existed, B- he was a Gordon Ramsay lookalike, C- he was indeed a dwarf, and D- he was a porn star. Did he really die in a badger hole? Was he eaten by a badger? Badgers are predators that eat small mammals, and Percy Foster was a small mammal, so I tend to believe the story.

          (Well, to paraphrase the X-Files, I want to believe it.)

        das ist ja sehr verwunderlich allerdings auch nicht neu

          That translates as “this is very surprising, however, not new.” Yup, from back in 2011. For some reason it was all over my Facebook feed a couple of days ago. Old or not, it was too good to ignore.
