Sorry to see him go, very funny guy. Loved the Golden Girls episode with him and Dorothy courting and marriage. Great entertainer.

Every time i see a full body condom I'll think Of Leslie and I'll smile. He will be missed.

SN:I didn't realize that the black guy in the movie was OJ Simpson until maybe 1999

News, The new tombstone on actor Leslie Nielsen's grave in Florida includes the traditional abbreviation for Rest in Peace along with a salute to his favorite jokes.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel said Sunday the epitaph at the comic star's final resting place in Fort Lauderdale reads, "Let 'er RIP," which brings to mind his love of low flatulence humor.

Good story. Thanks for sharing this, John! I especially loved Nielsen in Airplane! I've got some of the scenes from that movie memorized word for word. Hilarious! Now, DON'T call me SHIRLEY!

RIP, Leslie!

I just read a bit on wiki - did you know he was legally deaf most of his life and wore hearing aids? He came from normal (although his dad doesn't sound too nice) humble beginnings and it seems like he managed to hang onto that. Glad he succeeded and had a good life while bringing smiles to ours.
