Annette FunicelloWhat an odd pair of ladies to die within hours of each other! Balladeer’s Blog marks the passing of Annette Funicello and Margaret Thatcher.

ANNETTE FUNICELLO – Known as the Iron Mouseketeer, Lady Annette Funicello passed away today at the age of 87. The oft-controversial figure was known for her hell-for-leather approach to politics and for her fiery childhood resignation from the Mouseketeers, whom she memorably labeled “a bunch of Trade Unionists in mouse ears”.
