The award-winning actor and comedian Harvey Korman died today. Would you like to share some of your funny memories of him?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (25799 points ) April 3rd, 2014

This comedy sketch from The Carol Burnett Show makes me guffaw every time I see it.

Can you share something of Mr. Korman’s that made you laugh?

I thought he died 6 years ago.

Going to have to agree that this is six years late, but, the Jaws parody he did with Tim Conway on The Carol Burnett show is a personal favorite of mine.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

This is very embarrassing.

This is very old news.

I’m sorry.

Please, go about your regular lives. Move along. There’s nothing to see here.

Blondesjon's avatar

we still love you and shit

Damn time warps…this means tomorrow was yesterday and next week was 5 years ago. My appointment calendar is going to be a Holy mess.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

Hurry, @Cruiser! You’re late for a very important date!

@Hawaii_Jake Nothing to see here? I thought we were having a Korman tribute! I say we don’t need a reason.

Doris Day turned, what, 90 today? For real.

Que Sera, Sera. What ever will be, will be.

He was soooo funny in “High Anxiety” and “Blazing Saddles.” I’m sure Tim Conway is deeply saddened—they made a spectacular team on the Carol Burnett Show.

ibstubro's avatar

Bull shot, @Pachy. Korman was Leachman’s foil in “High Anxiety”. She dominated him!.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

I am sorry for posting this factually wrong question.

Yes, Harvey Korman is dead.

No, he did not die today.

He died in 2008.

I saw something about it online, and I thought it was new information.

I have appealed to the site moderators to delete the question. They aren’t doing that. I have further appealed to them to push it to editing. They aren’t doing that either. I am at a loss of what to do with this dreadful question.

rojo's avatar

Write fuck over and over (and throw in various Mod names) until they have to mod it for language and/or personal attacks?

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

Well, fuck.

If I write fuck shit damn hell all over a post, they will only remove that single post and not the whole fucking question.

Just push it to editing for fucks sake.

rojo's avatar

@Hawaii_Jake Well, fuck, that is because you don’t fucking say fuck that fuckwipe @heartkat and fuck @downtide and his little fucking dog toto too.

Toto Too?

Yes, Toto too!

rojo's avatar

Hey, I did what I could! If it doesn’t work sorry

rojo's avatar

Um, and just in case, sorry @heartkat and @downtide as well

rojo's avatar

And Toto too.

My life is ruined.

Is this when we start handing out the nekkid pancakes?

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

To anyone arriving to the party late, let me explain.

Yes, Harvey Korman is dead.

No, he did not die today.

He died in 2008.

Now, have a nekkid pancake. They’re on the house.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

[user says to the mods] Please, push this question to editing or delete it. Please make my shame go away.

But help yourself to nekkid pancakes first.

I watched Blazing Saddles wednesday night. It was the first time I’d seen it in years. I’m sorry you feel em bare assed, but really, it doesn’t hurt to tribute someone you enjoy, respect, admire, or miss. I don’t think you need a specific occasion.
If you want though, we COULD hi, Jack the hell outta this thread. We could post a bunch of off the mark quotes and facts, talk blizzards and snowmen through the summer, and build it to such a confusing mess, the start will be long forgotten. ;-P

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

@Jonesn4burgers Thank you. Would you pass the syrup for my nekkid pancakes?

Abe Lincoln – I freed who? No shit! All? Whehew, that Kentucky whiskey sure is somethin’ huh?!
Ben Franklin – I like French kissing, but I’m not wild about French dressing. That always means the party is over. French toast is nice. I can’t repeat my favorite French toast just now, though. My wife takes offense.
John Glenn – One big step leads to…. no, a leap for me a step for you… no, shit, we rehearsed it so much!
King Henry’s last wife – Like hell, Hank! I saw this one coming. I’d like you to meet a friend of mine.
George W. Bush – You can fool some of the people, but I can’t. No, wait, You can fool some of the people, I’ll try to fool a few more… no, now, when you fool some of the people your numbers go down, but when you fool most of the people you get re elected!
Daniel Boone’s last words – I think this bear heard of me.
Queen Victoria – Let them eat nekkid pancakes!

Cruiser's avatar

@Hawaii_Jake Except for the newest of newbies (and @Jeruba)....we all here have done this probably many times. At least your faux pas spurred some entertain replies.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Hawaii_Jake Ditto. That was kind of fun to remember Harvey.

Coloma's avatar

Well shit…talk about delayed grief. lol
6 years, 6 feet under, ol’ Harvey is nothin’ but bones now.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Coloma But he’s still trying to keep from laughing at Tim’s improvs.

Sad news, yes I heard that. Madeline Kahn is said to be very distraught.

Who’s got the coconut syrup? I’ve got nekkid pancakes that need syrup over here!

Awww…Why doesn’t Johnny have Glida on the Tonight show any more? Don’t tell me there’s hard feelings there! Can’t John Belushi work things out between them??

When does Jimmy Stewart’s new film come out?

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

Next week, I think. I heard it is called, Harvey!!!!!!!! Something about a pet rabbit, or drunk rabbit, or something.

ibstubro's avatar

I hope Anne Bancroft is in it. She hasn’t made a movie in YEARS. I always wanted to see her and Natalie Wood in a movie together. Could we stand that much beauty in a single film?

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

The humor on this thread is quite grave.

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

Better than thready humor in a quiet grave.
BWAW!

A little German turd faced upstart is rumoured to be spoiling for a fight with the whole wide world, you have been duly warned.

ibstubro's avatar

Why does he have that silly little paintbrush glued to his lip?

Heil myself!

Super-Duper men!

ucme's avatar

Came about because while attending art school in vienna, he pondered his next brushstroke & placed his brush to his lips, liked what he saw.

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

Who? Who is this little art student? I have not heard anything.
I heard of this up and coming artist named Warhol. I don’t think he’s German though. He might be a turd. We haven’t met.

ucme's avatar

Walt Disney, he plans to bring out a new character…Mortimer Mouse.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@ucme He can replace Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Mickey shot Minnie. She was fucking Goofy.

@Adirondackwannabe Yeah, yeah & Pluto was entering Uranus…woof, woof.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@ucme That’s a new one to me. Laughs.

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

Pluto? The new planet? I don’t get the joke.

NEWSFLASH! Phones with NO CORDS! So crazy, right? Uh hello, I think we have that. Isn’t It called walkie talkies?

Hark! Fear not, for I bring you tidings of great joy. Wait, where’s the wise men? I don’t see any wise men, just wise guys. My message is supposed to be for wise men.

Groucho is pulling away from his 3 brothers. I hear he’s planning some kind of game show.

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

No kidding? What’s a game show? Gosh, it seems a shame for them to break up. I guess they’ll just fade away and be forgotten. That will put a strain on things during Chanukah.
