One of My Fave Old-School Comedians

By Debbie Schlussel
One of my favorite old-school comedians is Don Rickles. His humor and put-downs are timeless and eternally hilarious.
He turned 80, this year, and has an interview in today’s USA Today. Best part:

Is there anyone in your family who wishes you would slow down?
No, my wife likes jewelry.

When he’s gone, his career in comedy will have lasted far longer than Sacha Baron Cohen’s will.

Rickles rules!

Geez, I thought the picture was John McCain…..I like Don Rickles a lot better than McCain, because at least Rickles tells the truth and isn’t afraid to hurt the feelings of illegal aliens who are sucking the country dry. McCain is a hockey puck.

He IS a classic! The Rat Pack. The club scene when “cool” was really COOL. I’m still partial to Rodney Dangerfield though.

I’d have a response but the Puerto Ricans next door stole my keyboard…

For as long as I can remember….he’s been my nomination to be the director of The ADL.
