THE POPE IS NEXT, RIGHT?

Sorry to be tasteless (not really) but: Terry Schiavo, comedian Mitch Hedberg... and the Pope is sick. The mysterious Death in Threes.

UPDATE: Oh dear. Now the Pope is in a coma. I sure hope he has a living will.

Holy crap! Mitch Hedberg was awesome. That sucks.

I learned here that Mitch passed away.

I really enjoyed his act. He's going to be remembered as the guy with all the drug humor, but two of my favorite jokes were about baked potatoes and getting a receipt at the donut shop.

"I went in to buy a donut and I got a donut and a receipt. I looked at the clerk and said, 'I give you a dollar, you give me a donut. We don't need to create a paper trail to track this transaction. I'm not going to be returning it.'"

I'm sure I butchered it, but I enjoyed his act very much.

Had the chance to see him right after his Comedy Central showcase and didn't.

Heh. I'm not that familiar with Mitch, but the article about his death...err.. made me laugh: "I used to do drugs. I still do drugs. But I used to, too," he often said, adding, "Alcoholism is the only disease you can get yelled at for having."

Sounds like he really went on a downward spiral, though. Has anyone seen "Los Enchiladas"?

That's a shame, I'll miss him. I'll never forget the bit he did about how he was giving Communion during a Palm Sunday mass and the cardinal in line asked for a receipt for the wafer and JP said, "Get the fuck out of here dude, what do you need a receipt for, it's not like you're gonna RETURN THE FUCKING WAFER because I just transformed it into the BODY OF FUCKING CHRIST and why would you want to return that you poor excuse for a Catholic you should be weeping for joy that you're CANNIBILAZING YOUR SAVIOR." Oh man, I loved that bit.
