Anyway, amongst the people we have lost so far this year, there's been a lot of celebrities. So I thought it would be a neat idea for this edition of Celebrity Quotes (which, thanks to your continued interest, will now be a regular Sunday Funnies bit for me!) where the stars talk about those we lost. Ready?
|Hoskins, circa 2007|
"Most dictators were short, fat, middle aged, and hairless. Other than Danny DeVito, there's only me to play them."
He played a lot more than the villains. I shall always remember him in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and deeply regret Hoskins never got to star in a sequel.
|Gwynn, circa 2011|
"The objective is to be the best player you can be. Remember: play hard and have fun."
Baseball great Tony Gwynn
The man was certainly a legend on the baseball field, and it's a shame he left us way too soon.
Robin Williams, from his debut comedy album Reality, What A Concept
His genius was unsurpassed. His loss to us is even greater.
|Garner, circa 1959|
"My last words? They might be 'But it was a joke.' I'm a comedienne. I was supposed to make people laugh, and I hope I succeeded."
She certainly did.
|Kasem, circa 1989|
"The world will miss Casey Kasem. An incredible talent and humanitarian. We will miss our dad."
Kerri, Mike, and Julie Kasem
"Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."
Truer words were never spoken. We must all strive for our hopes and dreams, but never lose touch with reality.
And on that note, have a great week everybody and please be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!--AtP.
