I’m busy and have no time and besides…I don’t know about you, but I’ve been soaking my pillow with tears all day over Rodney Dangerfield. Let Richard Avedon go worms; who cares? But Rodney! Oh I must weep again.
Mark Brunswick used to tell a Rodney joke: I sat down to tell my kid about the birds and the bees. He told me about my wife and the butcher.
Here are some more, from the NYT obit:
“I was an ugly child. I got lost on the beach. I asked a cop if he could find my parents. He said, ‘I don’t know. There’s lots of places for them to hide.’ ”
“My fan club broke up. The guy died.”
“Last week my house was on fire. My wife told the kids, ‘Be quiet, you’ll wake up Daddy.’ ”
“I was ugly, very ugly. When I was born, the doctor smacked my mother.”
Leave your favorite Rodney joke in comments. And while we’re on the subject, Here’s Hank on Janet Leigh. Good stuff.
