Thank you for making so many people smile and laugh.

Seriously? That's so sad. They have comedy channels on Sirius radio and his bits that they play are hilarious.  

And he was always the best on the SNL parodies of Jeopardy! There's one where he is playing Burt Reynolds wearing a huge floppy cowboy hat as a Jeopardy contestant and he is hysterical. I will miss him. RIP, Norm. :rose:

What a struggle; I am reading that he battled cancer for nine plus years. RIP.

Norm MacDonald on battles with cancer: “I’m pretty sure, I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. That’s not a loss. That’s a draw.”

Damn it.  An all time great, taken way too soon.

A favourite among many, many favourites of his stuff is when he did a set at the roast of Bob Saget.  Knowing those things are famously dirty and offensive, MacDonald's set is made up of the most inoffensive dad jokes possible.  His commitment to that bit is so goddamn funny.

I've had a link to this video in my signature for many years. It is my favorite joke of all time, and probably always will be.
