Don Rickles

Mr. Rickles exits the theater, preparing to deliver…

…a blistering stream of friendly, encouraging remarks to the photographers…

…a warm, respectful, not-at-all sarcastic greeting to fans across the street…

…and a farewell to the paparazzi that they treasured for its sincerity, affection, and broad-minded humanity.

It may look like it was a cloudy day, but wherever Don Rickles goes, it's nothing but sunshine.


  1. The only parts I could make out were "I love you guys!" to the photographers, and to the fans across the street, "Go home, it's supper time!"

    And then he dropped his pants and fired a rocket...
    (He's one of the last of the good ones. *Sigh*)

  3. He always has me in rickles - I mean stitches.
