RIP Mitch Hedberg

Some of the most depressing news I've heard in a long time. He was found dead in a hotel room in New Jersey, and they're not sure, but they seem to think it was a heart attack.

What depresses me is that I'll never get a chance to see him live. No more of his genuis new material. I am going to miss that, a lot.

that's exactly what I was saying. Honestly, I've never been more depressed by the death of someone I've never actually *known*.

I thought my old sig covered that, but yeah, there should have been one.

If Mitch Hedberg (whoever the hell that is) get's a thread, then Hunter should have got a whole damn forum!

Okay... I was wondering if I was the only one who didn't know who he was...

How about if you don't care about Mitch Hedberg's death, you don't post here saying so. If you want to complain about there not being a Hunter S. Thompson one, just make one yourself.

Hedberg was a brilliant comedian. Comparable to Steven Wright or Jack Handey. AWESOME one-liner guy.

Oh, so all of a sudden this forum has to have continuity in threads does it?

Let me clear my throat.

Mitch Hedburg- Comedian, no doubt Comedy Central will start playing his 1 hour special more now that he has died. Look around for it. "If you are flamable and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit." Brett is right, he is an awesome 1 liner guy.

Hunter S. Thompson- Gonzo Journalist of the Drug Era. Wrote some great things, perhaps the most memorable was "Fear and Loathing in Las Vagas", if any of you have ever watched and appriciated Mr. Depp's work as the main character, you should know he was portraing Hunter Thompson. Hunter died earlier this year, not suprising most of us, as he had threatened to commit suicide many, many times.

I suppose I've been a bit of an arsehole in this thread, so I'll step down.
This really got to me though. I was going to make a thread about the death of Hunter on the day, but then I thought about it and decided not to. I figured no one would give a shit or take it seriously, and it would just end up talking about some stupid random shit (or a quote tree).
Then this thread comes along and there's not a stupid joke to be seen...
Looks like I was wrong.

Sorry.

Let's not forget Terri Schiavo and everything she gave to society.

I didn't mean to seem like a jerk with my comment earlier.

If you made a thread about Thompson, I would not have joked around in it, I (and I think all of us) would have taken it seriously as he was a great man. I am sorry to you Psyonide.
