Comedians Do Terrible Jokes About Pepsi & Manilow. Comedy Legend Dies.
(Los Angeles) Legendary comedian Don Rickles died at his home in Los Angeles today, just days after comedians across the country made terrible jokes about Pepsi and Barry Manilow.
"He couldn't take it," his publicist said from the hospital where the insult-comic's kidneys failed like the jokes about Pepsi's tone-deaf Kendall Jenner ad and Barry Manilow's sexuality that were shat onto social media by talentless frauds posing as comedians all over the country this week.
"I mean the premises were so....hackneyed," the publicist said through tears. "Don saw those and...well, he...just...he just couldn't do it anymore," he said before breaking down completely.
This is not the first time awful comedy has taken down a legend. Just last year the amazing Garry Shandling died right after trailers for the female re-boot of Ghostbusters hit the internet and sent "comedians" down a rabbit hole of timeworn premises and easy-to-see-punchlines about pussy.
