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.

Think about it: Fawcett, the 1970s sex goddess and award-winning actress, will only be missed as much as a bug-eyed legal rat.

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.
