CARTOON ANSWER: PEOPLE LOVED DON RICKLES’ PUT-DOWNS AND INSULTS. HE WAS WELL PAID FOR HIS – – –
EE RES XAT TPE: “EXPERT-TEASE”
Good Morning, Everyone! 🎭 THE “DON” OF COMEDY 🎭
🎶 Something familiar, Something peculiar, Something for everyone: A COMEDY tonight! Something appealing, Something appalling, Something for everyone: A COMEDY tonight! Nothing that’s formal, Nothing that’s normal, No recitations to recite…Open up the curtain: COMEDY Tonight!🎶 “Comedy Tonight” – Zero Mostel 1962
🎭 Comedy’s a funny thing…depending where you FIXATE,
To get a laugh some comics will cajole, while some berate…
Don Rickles was the Master when it came to “Knock-Knock” jokes,
Not who’s there, but instead he’d knock the heck out of most Folks.
Yet no one tried to TOPPLE him, he reigned for many years,
With jokes that he’d REUSE and still bring most people to tears.
Beloved by other comics, figuratively they would KNEEL,
And praise his comic genius, citing him as the Real Deal…
Delivery and timing, the insults came with such ease,
He earned the nickname Mr. Warmth…He was the “EXPERT-TEASE“! 🎭
The only word of ours this morning that’s not showing up as a Sweet Repeat is REUSE. And the early morning consensus is that it may also be the word that’s USEd up most of our time! 4 of the 7 people that have checked in so far this morning have chosen it as the toughest word of the day…2 others were transFIXed by FIXATE, and the last chose TOPPLE..FUNNY, the difference of opinions, right? So, I’ll leave it up to all of you out there in the AUDIENCE…What word TICKLED your fancy this morning?
Today we find ourselves sitting ringside in the AUDIENCE at a DON RICKLES Show. Two couples are seen. One roaring in LAUGHTER, the other smiling, but a little apprehensively, since they’ve become the OBJECT OF DON’S AFFLICTION! Known ironically as Mr. Warmth, DON RICKLES, who passed away last year, built a COMIC EMPIRE on being the KING of The INSULTS. And he was definitely an EXPERT! A ROUGH-RIDING one, but an EXPERT! As we’re seeing here in our cartoon, he’s latched on to this couple and is TAUNTING them with one of his favorite routines, the “Is that your wife”. Most likely afraid of what else he might say, we see our husband saying, “Hey now“, and our wife, “Watch it, Don“…We can only imagine what’s coming next! So, the solution, in answer to our question?…He was well paid for his “EXPERT-TEASE“. BRAVO! Very good one, David! Let me PUT DOWN my coffee and give you a ROUND of APPLAUSE!
Ok, eye candy. Hmm…This is a ROUGH one today, and I’m not JOKING! .DON in a Burgundy tux, microphone in hand. Two round ringside tables, a couple at each, dressed for a night out on the town…Cocktail glass with an olive, highball glass with ice…Not much to mix up there. I’ll tell you what…All KIDDING aside, I think I’ll just take a pass today, and leave you with a little bit of DON RICKLES himself instead…”You know, every night when I go out on stage, there’s always one nagging fear in the back of my mind. I’m always afraid that somewhere out there, there is one person in the audience that I’m not going to offend!”...And I’m pretty sure his fears were always unfounded…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone…And I hope someone makes you LAUGH today…😂🙋🏻
