Don Rickles: When Being Polically Uncorrect Brought Laughter.
Don Rickles passed away last week. Unlike Chuck Berry, his passing didn’t get much of a notice, probably because he insulted everyone and it didn’t matter if they were Polish, Jewish, black or white…it was just funny.
That was his act, and those that knew him, loved him for it. It must have killed him to see the “politically correct” police censoring the comedians. Jerry Seinfeld has complained about it a lot. Once upon a time, you could tell just about any ethnic joke, and it was just in fun.
Those were the good old days.
Even though he was before my time, I still get a kick out of watching the other entertainers laugh at him.
Really. Don Rickles. I wish I could have seen him live in Las Vegas.
Hopefully, someone out there did.
RIP Mr. Rickles.
You know, you really had no talent whatsoever.
