Surprise Canadian (well, it was a suprise to me) and all-around awesome idiot Leslie Nielsen died today of pneumonia. He was 84 years old. Official story and boring facts can be found here.
And I’m thinking his family was happy with the lame way Lt. Drebin went out, but we know how he really felt.
A parachute not opening – that’s the way to die, getting caught in a combine, having your nuts bit off by a Laplander. That’s the way I want to go.
I hope there are plenty of Laplanders in heaven, Frank.
And if you want to see weird, serious Leslie Nielsen, then find a movie called Day of the Animals. Frigging weird-ass movie.
Not much else to say about Leslie. He was funny as fuck. So clean up the streets of the underworld, Lt. Drebin. And whenever someone has to do something important, and that someone has a friend who doesn’t suck, the friend will stick his head in the door and say:
I just want to tell you good luck. We’re all counting on you.
The video clip below might be good, might suck. I didn’t watch it, but it was the only one I could find which wasn’t someone taking a video of their TV. Seriously, people, it’s 2010. Christ.
