Leslie Nielsen 'Fell asleep and passed away.'



Leslie Nielsen has died. The funnyman who Roger Ebert once referred to as the "Laurence Olivier of spoofs" passed away after suffering complications from pneumonia.

News of Nielsen's death was reported on Canadian radio station CJOB Sunday.

Nielsen's nephew told CJOB that the actor had been in the hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for 12 days and that with family and friends by his side at 5:30pm Sunday "he just fell asleep and passed away."

"He was truly a nice man. A very caring, naturally funny guy in day-to-day life, not just because someone wrote something on paper for him. He was a very tender-hearted man. He was one of my best friends and I loved him dearly. I'll miss him greatly."

He was 84 years old.

That sucks - he was a very talented guy. Gotta say though, when it's my time to go, I hope I go the same way.

And don't call me Shirley.

Very sad to see him die, but he was up there in years.

I'm curious to see if he had left any directives to have something funny on his tombstone? I can picture the "Don't call me Shirley" line on it.

Hopefully, his family didn't wait until the last minute to fill out those organ donar cards...

RIP.

The last few years he's (let's be honest) been making crap, but damn, the first Naked Gun movie was one of the funniest movies ever made. Gonna have to pop that in the dvd.

World mourns death of Enrique Palazzo

World-renouned singer Enrique Palazzo has died. The man who Roger Ebert once referred to as the "Laurence Olivier of song" passed away after suffering complications from pneumonia.

News of Palazzo's death was reported on Canadian radio station CJOB Sunday.

Palazzo's nephew told CJOB that the singer had been in the hospital in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for 12 days after suffering multiple gunshot wounds, falling down 7 flights of stairs, chewing and choking on 37 pieces of gum at the same time and being hit by a bus, twice. With family and friends by his side at 5:30pm Sunday "he just fell asleep and passed away."

"He was truly a nice man. A very caring, naturally melodic guy in day-to-day life, not just because someone wrote something on paper for him. He was a very tender-hearted man. He was one of my best friends and I loved him dearly. I'll miss him greatly."

He was 84 years old.

That's how I want to go:

Peacefully, in my sleep. Not yelling and screaming like my passengers
