Up, up and away.

Charlie Watts


Charlie Watts · 80

June 2nd, 1941 - August 24th, 2021

After the Stones, his next band was "The A,B,C and D of Boogie Woogie". Really sorry we're going to miss that.

Don Everly


Don Everly · 84

February 1st, 1937 - August 21st, 2021

Bye bye, love.

Donald Rumsfeld


Donald Rumsfeld · 88

July 9th, 1932 - June 29th, 2021

He had a ton of military awards, AND had to resign in disgrace. A well rounded career, we say.

Ned Beatty


Ned Beatty · 83

July 6th, 1937 - June 13th, 2021

That should put an end to all that squealing.

F. Lee Bailey


F. Lee Bailey · 87

June 10th, 1933 - June 3rd, 2021

He defended a ton of murderers, got busted for drunk driving, was disbarred in multiple states, but hey - at least he was only married four times.

Gavin MacLeod


Gavin MacLeod · 90

February 28th, 1931 - May 29th, 2021

Set sail.

John Warner


John Warner · 94

February 18th, 1927 - May 25th, 2021

He was the 6th of Liz Taylor's 7 husbands. So, you know. Good job there.

April 21st, 1935 - May 18th, 2021


Bobby Unser


Bobby Unser · 87

February 20th, 1934 - May 2nd, 2021

Well, that should slow him down.

Olympia Dukakis


Olympia Dukakis · 89

June 20th, 1931 - May 1st, 2021

She was in a ton of movies, which came as a huge shock to us, because we thought she was just married to that failed politician. Huh. Oh well.

Walter Mondale


Walter Mondale · 93

January 5th, 1928 - April 19th, 2021

Imagine being MOST known for getting your ass kicked almost as bad as is POSSIBLE in a Presidential election. He had 13 electoral votes, for chrissakes. That's only 13 more than WE had.

Bernie Madoff


Bernie Madoff · 82

April 29th, 1938 - April 14th, 2021

The thing about pyramids is that there’s *always* a little prick at the top.

Prince Philip


Prince Philip · 99

June 10th, 1921 - April 9th, 2021

Well, well, well. Looks like QE2 is on the market again, fellas.

Beverly Cleary


Beverly Cleary · 104

April 12th, 1916 - March 25th, 2021

She was a beloved author who inspired tens of millions of children to read. Her biggest scandal was - gasp! - marrying a Roman Catholic in 1940. YOU try to think of a witty obituary, smartass.

George Segal


George Segal · 87

February 13th, 1934 - March 23rd, 2021

Yet another highly-acclaimed Jewish banjo-playing actor passes away.

Yaphet Kotto


Yaphet Kotto · 81

November 15th, 1939 - March 15th, 2021

As Dr. Kananga, he had one of the best Bond villain deaths ever. In real life, probably less dramatic.

Roger Mudd


Roger Mudd · 93

February 9th, 1928 - March 9th, 2021

His name is... well, you know.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti


Lawrence Ferlinghetti · 101

March 24th, 1919 - February 23rd, 2021

There once was a guy named Larry
Whose poetry game was hairy
Lived many years
Faced all his fears
And was only just recently buried

Rush Limbaugh


Rush Limbaugh · 70

January 12th, 1951 - February 17th, 2021

Michael J. Fox is probably laughing his ASS off right now.

Larry Flynt


Larry Flynt · 78

November 1st, 1942 - February 10th, 2021

He called himself a "smut peddler". He has a solid gold wheelchair, won a case in front of the US Supreme Court, found and then lost Jesus, and was depicted by Woody Harrelson in a movie about his life. Hero? You be the judge.

Marty Schottenheimer


Marty Schottenheimer · 77

September 23rd, 1943 - February 8th, 2021

200 wins, no championships, not in the hall of fame. But you know, famous.

George Shultz


George Shultz · 100

December 13th, 1920 - February 6th, 2021

His wife was married 3 times and all of her husbands died of cancer. Coincidence? Yeah, probably.

July 11th, 1953 - February 5th, 2021

The only boxer to beat Ali in the ring for a championship, and undefeated lifetime worldwide against dentists.

Christopher Plummer

December 13th, 1929 - February 5th, 2021

Plummer cracked.

Dustin Diamond


Dustin Diamond · 44

January 7th, 1977 - February 1st, 2021

That should put an end to all that goddamned screeching.

Cicely Tyson


Cicely Tyson · 96

December 19th, 1924 - January 28th, 2021

On a trip to a place WAY less bountiful.

Cloris Leachman


Cloris Leachman · 94

April 30th, 1926 - January 27th, 2021

She posed nude on the cover of Alternative Medicine Digest in 1997. THAT'S why she was famous.

Hal Holbrook


Hal Holbrook · 95

February 17th, 1925 - January 23rd, 2021

He was a great actor and in a lot of really shitty movies. Weird.

Larry King


Larry King · 87

November 19th, 1933 - January 23rd, 2021

He was married 7 times to 6 different women. No wonder he died.

Henry Aaron


Henry Aaron · 86

February 5th, 1934 - January 22nd, 2021


Phil Spector


Phil Spector · 81

December 26th, 1939 - January 16th, 2021

Truly an incredible resume of musical accomplishments. It's just that pesky murder that always seems to steal the spotlight.

Siegfried Fischbacher


Siegfried Fischbacher · 81

June 13th, 1939 - January 13th, 2021

Siegfried and Roy! Together again for an exclusive engagement!

Sheldon Adelson


Sheldon Adelson · 87

August 4th, 1933 - January 11th, 2021

For a man that built casinos, worked with mobsters, fought against weed legalization and Internet gambling, and was the single biggest supporter of a twice-impeached President, you'd think he was a complete shitbag. Turns out, you'd be right.

Tommy Lasorda


Tommy Lasorda · 93

September 22nd, 1927 - January 7th, 2021

Well, fuck. We always want someone solid to make fun of as the FIRST death of the year, and Tommy was NOT it. A baseball icon, an all-around good guy, and worst of all - NO scandals.

Sometimes running a deadpool sucks.



Guess the Stiff!

Dude goes down in a helicopter with his daughter and you came here to see what nasty thing we write about him? What is WRONG with you?

Just kidding. We couldn't think of anything.
