Knotts Going

February 25, 2006

The passing of Mr. Sir Don Knotts has been sadly marked. At 81 years of age the man in that photo has finally seen fit to take a vacation from earth.

I have questions.

  • Is it still okay to laugh at the work of funny people who get old and eventually die once they have gotten dreadfully old and then died?

I hope there are no moratoriums on that. I need me some George Burns now and then to take the edge off.

  • Is it okay that people die at all? Ever?

Talk about kicking a guy when he’s down. It’s bad enough the Lord makes us old, weak and horrible to try and hold conversations with. But to top it all off he decided he was “too busy” to indefinitely keep having to breath life into us. Thanks.

I guess when you’re God you can just do whatever you want.

(Note to self: Become God. Soon.)

Anyway I’m going to miss the idea of Don Knotts on earth. I don’t envy him the task of trying to make angels laugh in heaven without having his trademark face to work with.
