    An American stand-up comedian who made a name for himself being abusive and insulting. I just never found him funny. And I think he's ugly, too. Carlin was way funnier!

    But the old Greek jokes are pretty funny. Thanks.

    I actually laughed! But this stuff was mild compared to his schtick when he was younger. And much cleverer, I think. But that could just be my age talking.

    Okay; it must have been my atrophied sense of humor that never found Don Rickles funny. Jeez, I laughed so hard.

    My favorite guy at all those roasts was Red Buttons, with his list of famous people who never got a dinner. My favorite joke of his was, "Orson Welles, who once said to Anita Bryant, 'Stop persecuting me; what I am is a thespian'.....never got a dinner." (For those who don't know, Anita Bryant was an outspoken opponent of homosexuality.)

    Here he is in his last performance, and by God, even at the age of 86 or 87, he still had the timing that could make me double up laughing.

    Don Rickles on Dean Martin - 1968(?)

    Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1Ib_8Can3k
    Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmf__tKxAEo
    Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzYn3eHlRt4


    Ed. Note: Lots of cigarettes and Cuba Libres

    While working in a Los Angeles nightclub early in his career, he spotted Frank Sinatra.
    Rickles said "I just saw your movie, The Pride and the Passion and I want to tell you, the cannon's acting was great."
    He added, "Make yourself at home, Frank. Hit somebody!"
    Sinatra, whose pet name for Rickles was "bullet-head", enjoyed Rickles so much that he encouraged other celebrities to see Rickles' act and be insulted by him.

    Here's another take on the Parrot predicament (1st two paragraphs):

    Enlightening article. (I'd heard the joke before.)

    I'd heard it too. I think someday John and Jack should throw a curve at the audience and include something like this. I could see it coming up from Jack, first.

    Jack: "Well, you could always sell it!"

    John: "Sell it?! Who'd buy a bluddy dead parrot"

    Jack: "Well, don't be punchy about it! Here, let me explain..."

    John: "Nobody in their right mind this side of Bellvue would spend a penny farthing on a non-breathing, non-moving parrot"

    etc. I'll let you finish it.

    ... so they tied the old ladies boots just above the beak and flushed them down the Louvre singing "Toreh Malinas, Tory Maligne ass!"

    I've heard that most kanji tattoos don't say what people think they do.
