This is the man that taught me 'SATIRE' and how quick a snappy comeback and how to use sarcasm is used to hit people that are so ineptly STUPID. 
He never knew me, but I loved how he could make people laugh while he sliced them up into little pieces ...watched him do a stand-up skit on Jack Benny once; I was rolling on the floor!  
The last of the infamous 'RAT PACK' is gone.  WOW, what a era of great comedians.
