Ed McMahon Dies

Let's pour one out for comical alcoholic Ed McMahon, who has passed away at the age of 86. Or, as People puts it:

He was TV's most famous second banana, sitting alongside Johnny Carson during what was arguably the golden age of NBC's Tonight Show, from 1962 to 1992, welcoming a nightly national audience with his opening cry of "Heeeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny."

But now that voice is stilled.

Indeed. Actually, let's pour a couple out. It's Ed, after all.

You are correct, Sir!

He'll be interred in a mayonnaise jar on Funk & Wagnall's porch

So that coffee I spilled on myself was for a good reason?

St. Peter is going to be 32 kinds of thrilled when Ed McMahon shows up at the pearly gates with a gigantic cardboard outsized cheque for him from the Publishers' Clearing House.

There will never be another like him.

I hope.
