Get smart

Blogger Colby Cosh has rounded up some of the worst heads on the death of Don Adams, so I won't bother.
"Would you believe...? Comic Don Adams of Get Smart is dead" -Miami Herald
"Agent 86 makes 82 – missed it by that much" -The Courier-Mail, Brisbane
"We'll miss him by about that much" -The Daily Texan
"Cone of Silence descends on Smart" -The Australian
"Would you believe dead as a doornail?" -City Pages, Minneapolis-St. Paul

The Courier-Mail's one suits the irreverent Queensland manner. The Australian's is awful.

My favorite tasteless obituary headline that the Wichita Eagle didn't let me use was for car dealer Don Hattan. For 20 years before his death (and still to this day, actually) they ran commercials that would endlessly say "Don Don Hattan Hattan" blah blah blah. I argued for almost 20 seconds to use "Don Don Hattan Hattan is dead dead." It fit the count and everything.

Definitely inappropriate, Mike. But I love saying "Don Don Hattan Hattan Chevrolet Ranch" or just "Don Don Hattan Hattan."

There's just something fun about it.
