Doggone It, How Soon We Forget
It’s a sad day for dead celebrities, unless you’re an odd-looking freak who can lick his own crotch — and I’m not talking about Michael Jackson.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram is taking a survey of which dead celebrities from 2009 will be missed the most.
Naturally, Jackson received the largest percentage of votes (36 percent last time I looked).
Farrah Fawcett trailed with 15 percent – tying for third place with…drum roll please…Gidget the Taco Bell Chihuahua.
Even sadder – Oscar-winning actor Malden, who co-starred with Marlon Brando in several great movies, including my favorite, One-Eyed Jacks, hasn’t earned a single vote.
Also failing to earn a vote was McMahon, a former U.S. Marine and television personality who spent three decades yukking it up as Johnny Carson’s sidekick.
