    My thread topic was better.


    RIP to one of the greats. Glad I got a chance to see him last year, even if his fastball had clearly lost a lot.

    Shit, piss, etc. A sad day.

    Oh boy. This sucks. I have a feeling this thread is going to be more than a few pages.

    Holy crap. I never got him, but I recognize and respect his impact on the craft.

    That's sad. He'll definitely be missed. I'll never look at politics in the eyes of a comedian like him ever again.

    Just a few days ago he was named to win the Mark Twain prize for American Humor (part of the Kennedy Ctr awards). Very sad and stunning news, saw him perform several times...what a brilliant man.

    This news just ruined my whole fucking weekend.

    I'm not even being remotely sarcastic.
