    Default Norm MacDonald, 61, takes Cancer to a Draw

    ...and Iím pretty sure, Iím not a doctor, but Iím pretty sure if you die, the cancer dies at the same time. Thatís not a loss. Thatís a draw.

    Norm has been one of my favourite comics for a long time and the world is a bit sadder with news of his passing today... or so the Germans would have us believe.





    Death is a funny thing. Not funny haha, like a Woody Allen movie, but funny strange, like a Woody Allen marriage.

    I was telling my wife yesterday, that even though he wasn't the biggest face of stand-up, SNL, or movies...
    It felt like his style of humour defined our/my generation (moreso than say Jim Carrey or Chris Rock or others).

    Sort of a "Let me tell you about how [thisthing/thisperson/you] suck"...
    And afterwards - you just love him for saying it as matter of point.

    RIP.

    I loved this kind of stuff followed by that wry stare.

    I watched a lot of YouTube last night and I'm not sure if they were tears of laughter or sadness coming from me but this celebrity death stings more than I'd like to admit. I can't really watch YouTube while I'm at work but I have been reading Norm stories people having been sharing. I can't stop laughing at this one about a job interview he had with the Ottawa Citizen

    Letterkenny writer Trevor Risk shared a story about a job interview Macdonald had with The Ottawa Citizen, which he landed through brother and longtime CBC journalist Neil Macdonald. Risk writes that TheCitizen "first asked Norm why he wanted to work for them, and he gave a long answer about the 'search for truth.' The next question was 'Do you have a car?' and Norm said 'I happen to believe that the truth is within walking distance of me at all times.'"
