    He has had some health issues in the last few years. The last time I saw him, it seemed as if he had suffered a stroke. He did not look good. I also have heard that he was suffering from the effects of something akin to a clogged artery in his brain. I may be a victim of scuttlebutt, though.

    From what I've heart that I remember, He went into the hospital for surgery (and being Mr. Dangerfield his coment as he entered was "Well, if everything goes well I'll be in the hospital for about a week. If things don't go well I'll be in for about an hour and a half.") After the surgery they usually keep you in a coma like state for a bit but he has not come out of it. His wife came out a few days ago and told the public of his condition, but I haven't heard anything since.

    Here's to hoping things work out for him!

    See, that's what I want to be like when I'm older. I want to be able to make jokes even when I'm facing possible death. :eyebrow: :)

    He is a washed up old fart and he is going to die. Get over it.

    Last I read he wears a bath robe all day and smokes multiple joints. At that age, I could only aspire to such lofty heights...

    I saw an interview with him sometime last year. I'm pretty sure it was on The Daily Show. He was pretty bitter, not so funny, looked down on Jon, and didn't get the whole "Comedy Central" thing. He could have gotten sick after Caddyshack as far as I'm concerned.

    Well, hey, when in Rome... I guess I couldn't tell by the other honest posts that this was a "high-brow" thread. :bassist: I'm just not a Dangerfield fan, that's all. Try not to read too much into it. I don't REALLY wish hardship on anyone... :rolleyes:
