What Sucks…The Reaper

Farewell, great DeLuise. May you find peace in the hereafter and bask in the favor of the Lord who I happen to know, enjoys chubby guys who have those great laughs where it sounds like they are wheezing when they are cracking up. May Paradise for you be a place where someone is always making a meat sauce, and if you flub a line, you are not slapped in the face by Burt Reynolds.

You have given us much, Fatso, a great cameo in Blazing Saddles and sons Peter and Michael DeLuise who I believe were in 21 Jump Street and NYPD Blue respectively.

Clearly, with the passing of Bea Arthur a last week, and now the great DeLuise, the reaper is on a serious kick for underrated comic actors of the late 70’s and early 80’s. Bill Daily of the old Bob Newhart show should exercise caution.

Rest in peace, Captain Chaos- you will missed.

"Fatso" and "The Twelve Chairs" might be the two greatest movies ever made - Deloise and Frank Langella should both have received oscars for the latter ( a Mel Brooks film) -

And the line in "Fatso" screamed by Mel Brooks wife -"You ate the fucking Oni" is pure Delucaesque.
