TV legend and pepaw to all, Ed McMahon rode off to heaven this morning on a giant American Family Publishers check at the age of 86. Ed’s agent told NBC in L.A. that he passed away at the Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Ed’s cause of death is not known at this time.
Well, this is fucking sad. I thought Ed was going to outlive us all! In hundreds of years, I pictured Ed still smiling with a giant check in his hand and his neck covered in gold. Who’s going to hand me a giant check for a million dollars now? Who’s going to tell me how much my gold is worth? The sads.
Rest in peace, Ed…. Now you will be reunited with Johnny Carson in the great big late night TV show in the sky!
