Say goodnight, Dick

Dick Martin is dead at the age of 86.

I remember one of the skits on Laugh-In had Dick Martin as a wine connoisseur who had become a drunken bum who was on his last legs. He got involved in a wine identification contest (at the behest of Dan Rowan’s character, I believe) and won it. According to Dan Rowan’s character, he identified the last wine after his death. I doubt that Dick Martin’s real last words were anything like that.

I couldn’t find the skit, but there’s some good stuff here.

    Don’t forget the “Fickle Finger of Fate Award” and the Farkles. Dick Martin bet his last sweet Bippy, and socked it to us.
