Norm MacDonald dead at 61 of cancer.
« on: September 14, 2021, 03:59:34 PM »

One of the funniest people to ever exist.
 
He did not give a damn. He told the jokes he wanted and how he wanted regardless of possible consequences.

His SNL Weekend Update run was the best the show ever had.

His appearances on Conan are legendary.

He was an uncompromising bastard in a weak-ass world.

Probably was the funniest man in the world. (For me, at least- De gustibus non est disputantem.)

Anytime we lose perspective and laughter is a bad time. It's especially bad these days.

I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Listening to Louder With Crowder's tribute to Norm now. https://youtu.be/82Zf-uYQ8kw

I don't know this man as I haven't watched SNL since the first season.
