    Norm "apologizing" on The View is a work of art

    One of my all time favorite deliveries of his was at the end of Dr. Doolittle as the dog.
    Baby Alligator: Momma?
    Norm: Ohohoh No. Don't look at me. Although there was that one time I got drunk in the everglades.

    So subtle and overlooked but it still makes me laugh every time.

    I thought Cheers at first, was surprised that Norm was still alive to die.
    But yeah, I like Norm, his sense of humor resonated with me.

    The Saget roast was gold.

    This one, too, quickly became one of my favorites

    When I read about or hear about a celebrity death, I don't immediately react and in many cases I surprise myself how much I don't much care. There there are the deaths like Norm, which, for whatever reason, made me very sad. Something about the way he seemed to just be winging it, appealed to me.

    I have a good friend who kinda resembles Norm physically, and even sounds like him somewhat talking, laughing.... kind crazy that my friend even has a similar dry, dark humor.

    So anyway, over the years we've talked about Norm being such a unique and natural comedic talent, funny just being himself. This news just feels weird and sad....esp him being just 61.

    RIP Norm

    This might be my favorite Norm bit.

    "What are the symptoms of your disease?"

    "I get happy."

    The entire Me Doing Standup was so good.

    Sadly, it wasn't long after this special, apparently, that he got his diagnosis. After he'd just finished talking about cancer and not wanting to die.

    Yep, all but one of my grandparents were dead by the age of 62 or so. I thought that was just a common, old age for people to die, because I saw it happen 3 times in a span of 5 years or so.


    Now that my parents are around that age and older, 61 seems incredibly young to die. And it really is.

    Norm was from the era of SNL I grew up with and am really fond of. Farley, Sandler, Nealon, Hartman, Myers, etc.
