    RIP Don Rickles

    Man, when that guy did comedy, no one was safe. He had no problem offending every race, religion, ethnicity, social level, you name it. And somehow made calling people "hockey puck" hilarious.
    I don't play guitar because I'm good at it, I play because it's fun!!

    I guess that's why they never asked him to host the Junos.


    (Canadian joke...)
    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    Yes--the Junos are a joke...

    As to Don Rickles--not really my cup of tea--but I did like his work in the Toy Story movies.

    Condolences to his family & friends...

    I know--but I couldn't resist, especially in the sense of insult humour.

    He honed that skill of insults dealing with hecklers in his early years. He became a hecklers worst nightmare. By the time he was done them they were leaving the building in serious need of some psychological counciling. Lol

    I would love to see footage of that. But of course, they hadn't invented film back then. ;-)
