So it goes. Leslie Nielsen died this weekend. R.I.P. Leslie Nielsen, you will be missed. Shirley you are in heaven now, cracking up the angels.
Shirely, you can’t be serious.
Ya beat me to it. My bad, werttrew.
Surely this is sad news.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinking.
R2, do you like gladiator movies?
You ever seen a grown man naked?
Dude. Heaven ALREADY got a little more Peter Graves. Wrong gray-haired white man, RACISTS!
“A funeral? What is it?”
“It’s an event where we mourn people. But that’s not important right now.”
It’s hard to believe he was 84. In my mind he’s perpetually 60 and sassy.
The life of everyone on this blog depends upon just one thing: finding someone back there who can not only post an animated gif, but who didn’t have fish for dinner.
I feel like the world just ate a spoonful of Drano; sure, it’ll clean you out, but it’ll leave you hollow inside.
Pull it together, teacherman. It’s fourth and fifteen and you’re looking at a full-court press.
Well, I guess like a blind man in an orgy, I’m going to have to feel my way though.
My new, favorite indie band:
“Leslie Nielsen OR Death”
-R.I.P. Leslie Nielsen.
Seriously, sometimes Bing is just so fucking insensitive!
Give me Leslie Nielsen or give me death
I only regret that I have but one Leslie Nielsen to give for my country. — Nathan Hale
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I took the one with Leslie Nielsen
Leslie Nielsen reminds me of my dad, they are both very serious & goofy at the same time. That’s right I said “are”, ‘cuz they live on in our hearths. Our Hearts!
Nothing but love and respect for the man. Easily one of the best deadpan comedians of all time.
Please please please, go watch “Dracula: Dead and Loving It.” He is amazing in it. The whole film is terribly underrated. This clip begins with one of my favorite scenes.
I would like to point out, it took me so long to post this because i went to grab the url, and then couldn’t stop watching clips…
“Thanks, I just had it stuffed.”
This week’s Nielsen ratings are up…all the way to heaven
I think I speak for everyone when I say
“Your comment is awaiting moderation.”?? Guh?
For some reason, Bing suggests “Mongolian Death Worm” when you search Leslie Nielsen OR Death. I think he would have liked that.
When I was younger, my parents divorced and my mother had to raise four children alone while going back to school. It was, as you can imagine, a handful for her.
Luckily, this was just at the time when when VCRs were the new thing, so she borrowed one from a friend and would rent eight movies at a time to keep us entertained while she worked or studied. There were two movie rental places in our town that opened–Video Villa and Home Movies To Go–and I can still remember how they smelled and how my hands would feel dry and dusty after holding the large plastic VHS cassette boxes.
Being children, we only ever watched the same few things over and over. High on the list were both “Airplane” movies and the original “Police Squad” television show which ran for only six episodes.
I was eight or nine at the time, my brother and sisters were even younger, and we didn’t understand everything, but we loved them nonetheless, laughing at the absurdity. These were some of my happiest times, laughing with my brother and sisters.
Of course, in my family, my father would tape these movies from TV and then carefully edit out anything that might be construed as objectionable (for example, the love scene from “Naked Gun”).
Despite the protests of my sister and myself, his edits somehow heightened the absurdity and intensified the ridiculous pacing of the films.
In addition, I suspect that watching Leslie Nielsen movies and the searing crush I developed on him probably set me up for a lifetime of falling in love with hilarious people formed in the deadpan mold.
I’m glad he’ll always live in what he created.
I have a videotape of just the objectionable parts that I will loan you.
“Thanks. I just had it stuffed.”

I am reading all these Leslie Nielsen death jokes, and I have to think….Leslie Nielsen would have wanted it this way.
Shine on, you crazy diamond.
At least he passed quietly, surrounded by his wife and friends. It’s nice to know that not every celebrity dies from an unpredictable drug overdose.
RIP Enrico Palazzo.
This was the first thing I thought of.
“And the rockets red glare/ bunch of bombs in the air/ gave proof through the night/ that we still had our flags”
RIP Mr. Nielsen, you made me laugh in everything you were in.
Quentin Hapsburg: “Do you gamble?”
Lt. Frank Drebin: “Every time I order out”
Lt. Frank Drebin: [greeting the wheelchair bound Dr. Manheimer] Don’t get up.
I guess I picked the wrong week to start a Facebook campaign to get Leslie Nielsen to host SNL.
I hope everyone’s holidaytimes were great. I haven’t had internet in two weeks but I wanted to say it feels good to be back on here, among e-friends, remembering Leslie Nielsen and his work.
Thanks for being swell.
I am very sorry that Leslie Nielsen is dead, but it’s been hilarious to see how many people were surprised by his passing. I LOL’d when one of my friends tweeted: “Leslie Nielsen dead! WTF!” Uh, he was in his mid 80s. Sometimes people die at that age.
Oh, Gabe. By using a little Vonnegut there you totally have classes up the sad news I learned from Facebook. I hate our world sometimes, you guys.
*note: do not operate internet when under the influence of sad.
My favorite TV couple is together again, in heaven: Dorothy and Lucas Hollingsworth. Enjoy the Freddy Anderson in heaven, you guys.
