Raise your glasses, Gents.
« on: September 30, 2010, 12:53:35 AM »
Greg Giraldo, comedian and judge of Last Comic Standing has heard his last mortal heckler. He passed on today at the hospital not far from my house, dead at 44 of a drug overdose. Surprised, no. But still sad.

Enjoy the great big gig in the sky, Mr. Giraldo.

Indeed. Sad because I thought he was a riot. Sadder cause he's gone. The circumstances are unexpected- thought he got off that stuff.

Here's a raise of my Chimay Blue Greg Giraldo, may you rest in peace.

Ah, bummer.  Heard he'd been hospitalized, didn't hear he'd died.  Too bad, funny guy.

I dont know who he is. But god speed to him.

I was a little upset about Tony Curtis though and Eddie Fisher. Geez, ah man. We are all gonna die.

Hey do you think that story about Jamie Lee Curtis being born a hermaphrodite is true?
Beer, its whats for dinner.
