First Tubesteak, Now Gidget!

First, erroneous reports of Tubesteak's demise, now PEOPLE magazine is saying Gidget died of a stroke Tuesday night. But these quotes from PEOPLE magazine -

The "mostly retired actor lived out her days lying in the sun"

"She charmed millions"

"She made so many people happy"

"She was a consummate pro"

"She delighted the crew"

"Gidget always knew where the camera was"

are not about that Gidget. Story and photo here.

Indeed, Anon. To have novel Gidget: The Little Girl With Big Ideas personalized by 'The Gidge' is priceless. Sadly, I lost my copy. 'The Gidge' is easily the largest name in surfing history--ever. Never mind Laird, Rob, and Kelly. They're a flash in the pan. Tubes, however, is on the brink of a nervous breakdown.
