Requiem for Barney Fife

R.I.P. Don Knotts, 1924-2006.

At least he wasn't nipped in the bud. My Dad - a HUGE Andy Griffith Show fan - is probably curled up in the fetal position right now.

As a tribute, here is an mp3 of Dana Gould's classic stand-up bit about Don Knotts's inability to make obscene phone calls due to his distinctive voice (the file begins with a great "Vincent Price pickin' up the ladies" piece).

I actually downloaded it, and it was hilarious...
"It's that caller ID!!"

Why didn't my first comment show up? Are you having comment problems again?

Wow! Someone actually downloaded something I put up.

I think Blogger is trying to silence you.
