    Miss Cleo looked 53 about 30 years ago.

    I once called her high as a kite while I was in college. I asked her questions from a statistics test I had just taken. I don't think I ever got through to the actual Miss Cleo though, just a Jamaican sound-alike. She didn't have any answers for me, just said "Come on now, son" to me a lot.

    Did she think the test was bullshit?

    She's back from the dead!

    Or at least her estate is still alive and kicking. A copyright lawsuit, which I find intriguing, was filed on her estate's behalf against Grand Theft Auto over the character Auntie Poulet.

    Pretty good rundown of the legal case:
