I Miss The King

PBS ran a documentary the other night about Johnny Carson.  I hate to gush, but that guy was just amazing.  A brilliant writer, here is a selection of his quotes that especially tickle me:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Did you know Richard Nixon was the only president whose formal portrait was painted by a police sketch artist?”

“For days after death hair and fingernails continue to grow, but phone calls taper off.”

“I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex and rich foods.  He was healthy right up until the day he killed himself.”

“Married men live longer than single men.  But married men are a lot more willing to die.”

“Never use a big word when a little filthy one will do.”

“People will pay more to be entertained than to be educated.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
