Shirley Drebin Dies at 84

LOS ANGELES — Leslie Nielsen, who traded in his dramatic persona for inspired bumbling as a hapless doctor in “Airplane!” and the accident-prone detective Frank Drebin in “The Naked Gun” comedies, died on Sunday in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He was 84.
The Canadian-born actor died from complications from pneumonia at a hospital (a big building with patients, but that’s not important right now) near his home at 5:34 p.m., surrounded by his wife, Barbaree, and friends, his agent John S. Kelly said in a statement.

Thanx for making me lol…a lot.

    6. There are worse ways to die than falling asleep and not waking up. I hope things go well for his family.

      • Ed: That’s no way for a man to die.

        Frank: No…you’re right, Ed. A parachute not opening…that’s a way to die. Getting caught in the gears of a combine… having your nuts bit off by a Laplander, that’s the way I wanna go.

        Wilma: Oh….Frank. This is terrible.

        Ed: Don’t you worry Wilma. Your husband is going to be alright. Don’t you worry about anything. Just think positive. Never let a doubt enter your mind.

        Frank: He’s right, Wilma. But I wouldn’t wait until the last minute to fill out those organ donor cards.

        Wilma: [crying]

        Ed: What I’m trying to say is that Wilma, as soon as Nordburg is better, he’s welcome back at Police Squad.

        Frank: Unless he’s a drooling vegetable. But I think that’s only common sense.

    9. Superb stuff, will have to revist naked gun/airplane – there should be a public vote on which celebs get to live forever :)… well no.. scratch that… they should ask me and people with similar opinions.

      “Frank: Wilma, I promise you; whatever scum did this, not one man on this force will rest one minute until he’s behind bars. Now, let’s grab a bite to eat. “
