A Big Monster Came and Took Leslie Nielsen to Daddy Heaven

November 29th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized  |  2 Comments

This clip came via Lindy West (one of 20 under 40!), so I can’t take credit for unearthing it. But because this is a dad-blog, the big-monster-came-and-took-him-to-daddy-heaven line in the clip below seems a good tribute to Leslie Nielsen. The native of Regina (rhymes with ‘vagina’), Saskatchewan–a member of Canada’s Walk of Fame and would-be star of Lipshitz Saves the World (Who’s the Shitz, He’s the Shitz)died yesterday at 84.

Godspeed, Saskatchewanian.

    No doubt. He did a hell of a straight-man act.
