Every Gray Comedian Has a Silver Lining

Through his real-life mouthpiece, Don Rickles, Kirby motivates us with these words:
That's right. We should do well to remember that cruel misfortune is a lightning rod for laughs. And how can you feel bad when you make others feel so good? Stop dwelling on your own misery, and realize that you're giving everyone else free samples of the "best medicine". The secret of life is as simple an equation as that, hockey puck!

Actually that's Goody Rickles. But you knew that.

He's Don's greatest role!

(Only role?)

Of course not! Leaving aside "Quest for Camelot" (please do) and "Kelly's Heroes," Mr. Rickles is best known for voicing Mr. Potato Head in the "Toy Story" movies.

So it's a potato role. (A real starch turn.)

I wasn't thinking of those, but I yam aware of them.
