Don't ask! Just buy it!

What I wrote on Facebook:

Superman and the Guardian escorting Don Rickles into Comedy Valhalla. Kirby says: "Don't Ask! Just Mourn!"

I'm going to miss him. Beyond his comedy, Rickles has exemplified friendship to me -- that unusual, ball-busting friendship particularly common among guys. He and Bob Newhart -- two comics with diametrically opposed styles -- had a friendship that lasted decades. That these two guys, who expressed themselves so differently, could be fast and loyal friends always meant a lot to me.

So rest in peace, Don. Thanks for all the laughs, and more.

From everything I've heard, despite his combative style, he was a very nice guy.

People use to vie for the opportunity to be insulted by him.

Great comedian.  Terrific in Casino and the Toy Story series.  Rest in peace.
