    Dang it.

    Norm is universally beloved by other comedians, which is really saying something. RIP to a genuinely funny dude.

    Aw wtf?

    So upsetting.

    RIP Norm. I adored you. You've long been my favorite YT binge watch.

    I guess this is an apropos tribute:

    I worked with him on Dirty Work.

    One-day I was in the elevator with Norm and Bob Saget. On the way to a meeting.

    The elevator stops and someone from home video got on with a standee of Elvis.

    Norm: Oh my god...its Elvis Presley!
    Bob: He's dead Norm.
    Norm: He's standing right next to you Bob...have some respect.
    Bob: Oh god. We'll never get any work done now. It's now Elvis Presley Day.
    Norm: Everyday is Elvis Presley Day.

    Funny man. RIP.

    "He's standing right next to you Bob...have some respect," said in Norm's voice, made me laugh out loud. Guy's even making me laugh from beyond the grave.

    He basically played the same Burt Reynolds character on My Name is Earl, as a sleazy strip club owner. He also played Mike Heck's screwup brother on The Middle. He was of course excellent in both.

    And lest we forget, Norm was the best Col
    Sanders. I will hear no arguments on this.

    Jeez man. 61 yrs old. I couldn't imagine having lost my Dad when he was 61. Makes me that much more thankful for the time I have left with my folks.


    Rest in Peace, Norm.
