    R.I.P Johnny Carson!!!

    Normally I wouldn't report a death like this, but...

    Johnny Carson died today at the age of 80. Even though I'll be 15 in 2 weeks and never saw his program when it canme on the air, I have seen some of his famous clips (remember when the bird thought Johnny's head would make a good toilet?) and appreciated some of his famous jokes he would tell as he predicted the answer to a question hermetically sealed inside an envelope while he would wear a Carnac hat. In his honor, I will offer the most recent Carson-style joke I've heard.


    ANSWER: Super Jumbo

    QUESTION: What does Kirstie Alley hear after she does a good job?


    Johnny Carson has influenced the late night talk show industry forever, and I find it fitting that we all pay one last tribute to Johnny. I will close in the famous words of Ed McMahon:

    "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny!!!!"


    We'll miss you, Johnny! (swings imagnary golf club)

    Very nice tribute, Olmec! And very interesting how even a young person like you can see the impact Johnny made in his life. He will be missed.

    BTW, my mom, who just passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 78, loved Johnny Carson. Maybe they can keep each other company, and make each other laugh in heaven now...

    I think I'm gonna cry.
    I loved watching his show when I was younger... I'm going to miss him. He was funny and he was an all-around good guy.

    I know that there's a short clip of him at the ending montage of "The American Adventure". I also seem to vaguely remember a mannequin of him and Ed McMahon on a mock set of the Tonight Show performing the "Carnac The Magnificent" skit, but I'm not sure if that was in WDW. (It may've been the wax musem in Vegas -- my memory is bad)

    Johnny will be missed by many. During his thirty years on the Tonight Show he had a way of making even the worst days melt with his comedy.

    We will miss you Johnny...God Bless

    Does he have his handprints outside of the Great Movie Ride?

    Rest in Peace Johnny. You brought years of laughter to so many.
