2007


YVONNE DE CARLO - January 8

Lily Munster leaps into the dumpster.
________________________________________

CARLO PONTI - January 9

Now Sophia Loren's available!
Except that now she's, like, 99 by now.
(It's certainly not a good 24-hour period to have a "Carlo" in your name.)
________________________________________

ART BUCHWALD - January 17

Art the fart made a living mainly from writing that most
politicians were just dumb crooks. Wow, whatta genius.
You don't often see real originality like that...
except, like, every five minutes or so.
________________________________________

TIGE ANDREWS - January 27

In the '60s TV series The Mod Squad, he played the top cop.
But these days he's at a full stop.
________________________________________

SIDNEY SHELDON - January 30

Ya, he wrote those cheesy novels, but he knew he could get away with it
since he'd already invented the super-sexy TV show I Dream Of Jeannie.
________________________________________

LEW BURDETTE - February 6

Out of all the pitchers the Braves ever had,
he was one of the bravest - and best.
________________________________________

FRANKIE LAINE - February 6

This mule trainer had a raw hide...
that is, until the guy up and died.
________________________________________

ANNA NICOLE SMITH - February 8

Blarp! And another pill-popping druggie
turns up dead as a buggie!
________________________________________

THOMAS EAGLETON - March 4

Ran for V.P. but didn't win, since he turned out to be crazy.
Now he's crazy and dead. Wow, some people just can't win.
Oh, ya - we already covered that.
The "eagle" has landed - in fact, it crash-landed.
________________________________________

ERNEST GALLO - March 6

Hey, Ernie - say hello to your dead bro Julio.
But we always preferred Christian Brothers, anyway.
________________________________________

BRAD DELP - March 9

This Boston rock group guy died without a yelp.
And all that dope was certainly no help.
________________________________________

BETTY HUTTON - March 11

For life she was once a glutton,
but now she's stopped chewin' her mutton.
Yes, her mouth is finally shuttin'
because somebody punched her button.
________________________________________

LARRY "BUD" MELMAN - March 19

He was really some guy named Calvert De Forest,
but nobody could see the forest for the... glee.
(Hee-hee!)
________________________________________

ROSCOE LEE BROWNE - April 11

One of the first actors ever to do that
really annoying three names thing.
________________________________________

KURT VONNEGUT - April 11

Slaughterhouse 5?
Thanks, but the usual mortuary for one will be fine.
________________________________________

DON HO - April 14

Hawaiian inventor of the ho.
He worked his way up to big bootys,
after starting out working with tiny bubbles.
________________________________________

KITTY CARLISLE - April 17

One for Carlisle in the graveyard aisle.
Seems she was a game show panelist for, like, forever.
And she almost lived for, like, forever.
So please, no pity for Kitty.
________________________________________

BORIS YELTSIN - April 23

Some Ruskie head guy or something,
who we're pretty sure must have
invented some new kind of vodka.
(At least he researched it an awful lot.)
________________________________________

JACK VALENTI - April 26

Mr. Valenti
liked to censor movies plenty.
Now jerky old Jack
is only seeing black.
________________________________________

TOM POSTON - April 30

Now in hell he's roastin'.
(Just kiddin', Posty ol' pal!)
________________________________________

WALTER SCHIRRA - May 3

Now he's an astro-not!
________________________________________

JERRY FALWELL - May 15

Jerry Falwell now tells Hustler magazine about
his first time in hell - where his mother already is.
Larry Flynt wins... again!
________________________________________

CHARLES NELSON REILLY - May 25

From Mrs. Muir to the Match game,
this tiger was anything but tame! Rowrrr!
(And he was another very early member
of the showbiz "three name" club.)
________________________________________

DON "MR. WIZARD" HERBERT - June 12

You knew schools were headed for trouble
when kids were learning more stuff from
TV than they ever were in real life.
________________________________________

JOEL SIEGEL - June 29

Yet another know-nothing movie critic.
Except this bum also ripped off fellow critic
Gene Shallit for his shtick, which really
wasn't any good in the first place.
________________________________________

BEVERLY SILLS - July 2

The opera must be only half way over fast,
because the semi-fat lady just sang her last.
________________________________________

CLAUDIA "LADY BIRD" JOHNSON - July 11

Former first lady who started the
Keep America Beautiful campaign.
Burying Johnson and that ugly stone face
of hers is a huge step in that direction.
________________________________________

TAMMY FAYE BAKKER - July 20

Now we can only "pray" that "de lawd"
also zaps her equally crooked hubby Jim.
________________________________________

TOM SNYDER - July 29

Dead enough, sir - dead enough.
________________________________________

MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI - July 30

Now just so much baloney.
________________________________________

INGMAR BERGMAN - July 30

In mud buried, man.

(Must be Dead Euro Director's Day.)
________________________________________

MERV GRIFFIN - August 12

Ahhh... this time he won't be right back.
And he said he "created" the Wheel Of Fortune concept?
Wrong - he stole the whole thing from an Elvis Presley movie!
(You know - the one with Pat Harrington,
where Elvis is an ex-Navy frogman.)
________________________________________

PHIL RIZZUTO - August 13

Rizzuto goes kaput-o!
________________________________________

LEONA HELMSLEY - August 20

That rotten old real estate crook
certainly showed the hell in Helmsley.
________________________________________

LUCIANO PAVAROTTI - September 6

One of those big opera guys. And we do mean b-i-g.
________________________________________

JANE WYMAN - September 10

She was the one smart enough to not stay married to Ronnie Raygun.
________________________________________

ALICE GHOSTLEY - September 21

Wow, now she's really getting ghostley!
________________________________________

MARCEL MARCEAU - September 22

Neighbors said he was always a quiet guy who kept to himself.
________________________________________

DEBORAH KERR - October 16

When you speak of this death later -
and I know you will, because I'm psychic -
treat Deborah gently, with tea and sympathy.
________________________________________

JOEY BISHOP - October 17

Well, the Rat Pack
won't have the Bishop
to bash around anymore!

(Oh, ya - Joey was the last one.
Which means Jerry Lewis wins!
Oh, Dean! Hey, lay-dee!)
________________________________________

ROBERT GOULET - October 30

If ever you would leave us?
Apparently you just did, you lying bastard!

The Norman Is The Dead.
________________________________________

ROGER SMITH - November 29

Now Ann Margret's available, just like Sophia.
Wow, this is getting to be a regular
Grumpier Old Men hubby bloodbath!

Anyway, Smith was in that 77 Sunset Strip thing.
(In the photo he's the one in the very back.)
________________________________________

EVEL KNIEVEL - November 30

He's one dead motorbike weevil.
________________________________________

IKE TURNER - December 12

Not such a coke-snorting, chick-smacking,
mailman-shooting big-mouth now, are ya?
________________________________________

OSCAR PETERSON - December 23

Oscar played those keys
like a refreshing breeze!
If there's a musical heaven,
and they need a jazzy pianoman,
then they've got a helluva band!

(Okay, sometimes we have to
paraphrase things around here.)
