Speaking of dead comics, Why did no one make tribute to or mention of the ultimate snub by Don Rickles by dying. Are we so PC as to not honor the man who kept his finger on the third rail for over 60 years.
He was known as Mr. warmth who led with making fun of the ugly truth yet he never discriminated. Everyone really wanted to be insulted by Don.
Think about how similar Donald Trump is to Don Rickles, but without the warmth. They are both the Merchant of Venom.
Perhaps dead was the average age of Don's fans but if you ever saw him you know you laughed.
Just incase you are a PC snob, ironically you are so because of Don.
So here is to the real life Mr. Potato Head, Don Rickles, a Kelly hero and a man who made life more fun.
