Heeeeeeere’s Johnny….

I am saddened by the death of Johnny Carson earlier today. I grew up watching Johnny Carson. When I was younger, he was on past my bedtime, and I used to stay up and hook headphones to my TV so I could listen anyway. He was the ideal and perfect talk-show host. He was comforting, intelligent, witty, sad, maudlin, cheerful, all on demand and when required. And, he was sincere. Always. He loved his guests and his guests loved him.

I am reminded of my favourite bit: the Great Carnac.

Question: “What goes sissssss, boom, bah?”
