My Bippy Flies at Half-Staff

Dick Martin also died this weekend.

The sonuvabitch cracked me up, although I actually preferred his more cerbral work on the the Match Game programs, and in his various guest shots on later series, to his work on Laugh In. The clueless bit, with non-sequiters, was occasionally hilarious, but his knowing humour was much, much funnier, imho.

Dick's gorgeous wife, Dolly, starred in the seminal film Beyond The Valley of the Dolls. Her Mensa credentials can be viewed here.
