Ed McMahon has been a pop culture icon for decades and went beyond being Johnny Carson's sidekick. Star Search, those Publisher's Clearing House commercials. Unforgettable parodies by the late Phil Hartman on SNL:
I don't think he was overselling any joke. I think he was actually that fond of Carson, and having that much fun. He was also probably loaded half the time, which always makes ME laugh a little too much as well.
The Tonight Show aired a nice tribute to McMahon and showed some classic clips from his days with Carson. They also showed a clip from his appearance on Conan's show in its first season when he and Andy played 'quarters.'
Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

I can't let this go without some recognition. Bravo to you sir.
As for Ed, he was great. Heck, I would buy a gold toilet seat from the man.

Or perhaps we could blame the Egyptians. If it weren't for giving the damn Israelites a persecution complex for the next 4,000 years (as well as giving numerous races through history the inspiration to pick on the Jews)
