Blazing Cat Fur
I loved watching Rickles. He’s from an era when people had much more freedom.
I always particularly enjoyed him on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. RIP, Mr. Rickles.
He was a good.
I remember an episode of Get Smart he guested on that had me in tears and I was just a kid at the time………….no really I was.
So was I;)

Rickles leans over and kisses Sammy Davis Junior on the lips.
[Rickles to Sammy] I love you Sammy Davis Junior!
[Rickles to the audience] Did I get any black on me?
[Rickles to Carson] Quiet! I’ll tell the jokes around here!
Those were hilarious times.

Compare that to the current times. It’s enough to make one barf.
Another genuinely funny man has gone. We are now down to Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Jackie Mason, Jerry Lewis and sometimes Woody Allen.
And Gilbert Gottfried.
There was no greater honour than to be insulted by the best.
I remember this:
