I happened to randomly catch the tail end of a radio program, and as their last item, they announced a "notable" death, which, in itself, is not all that uncommon. The thing is, the person who died was known for his work in the "adult entertainment" industry.

Now, there are many times when I don't recognize who people are in celebrity gossip, or have any idea who is supposedly famous. On the radio show, there were two announcers, one male and one female. The man announced the death, and the woman seemed puzzled for a moment. The man repeated the name in a suggestive tone, and the woman responded by saying, "Oh THAT ______" and tittered on air. Not only was the tittering unprofessional and jarring, but it says something when a national radio program finds it proper to announce this person's death as a "celebrity", apparently, on the assumption that everybody is watching porn.
