Cry Blood (Hurt)

R.I.P. Soupy Sales

Soupy Sales, a comic with a gift for slapstick, has died. He was 83. Sales had numerous ailments and died Thursday at Calvary Hospital in the Bronx.

I can actually remember seeing his show, as a kid. The guy was just damn funny and full of energy, and he's been a name and face I've never forgotten. The world needs more of his brand of simple, unpretentious comedy. Thanks for making me laugh, sir.
