Dom Deluise 1933 - 2009

Here he is as a hoggish Emperor Nero in Mel Brook's History of the World Part I:

Thanks Dom for some historic belly laughs.

Sadly, I'm using this movie for obituaries a lot these days. It was a favorite of mine in high school. I still love it.

See Grandmere, I told you that I have very low standards in humor. All that dry wry elliptical New Yorker type humor is just wasted on me.

Was Dom "Fam"? (He pings my 'dar! ;-/)

I've always suspected the same thing about Dom myself. I have no idea if he was.
