*Leslie Nielsen Passes Away*

Surely, you can't be serious.
I am serious. And don't call me Shirley.

Bummer. I've been a fan of Leslie Nielsen's brilliantly deadpan humor for decades and am truly saddened to hear of his passing.

In addition to his earlier dramatic roles, his legendary comedy turns in Airplane! and the Naked Gun series have been mentioned quite a bit in the news. What hasn't been mentioned is that he was equally hilarious playing the president of the United States in Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4.

While addressing the United Nations, he turns around to see the U.N. sign behind him to remember where he is. "I'm standing here at the un." Classic!



Thank you for making my life brighter with years of hysterical laughter, Leslie Nielsen.

Hospital?!!!

What is it?

It's a big building with patients, but that's not important right now.

I took my father to the movies for the Sunday matinee this morning. We had a conversation about this very Anita Bryant quote from Airplane! at lunch afterward.

What's that smell?

Oh, that would be me. I've been swimming in raw sewage. I love it!

The cockpit?!!! What is it?

It's the little room in the front of the plane where the pilots sit, but that's not important right now.

He is attending a fancy reception and the woman reaches out and says "your coat?" and he says "it's mine and I have the receipt to prove it."

Wilma, I promise you that whatever scum did this, not one man on this force will rest one minute until he's behind bars. Now, let's grab a bite to eat.
