Yes, I know the thing about celebrity deaths coming in threes is one of those silly myths, but the myth does provide a way to think about things. For example, we’ve just had the death of Dick Martin, followed closely by the death of Harvey Korman. Which funny person do we put on the Death Watch? And can the world these days really stand to lose any more funny people? From Mel:

“A world without Harvey Korman – it’s a more serious world,” Brooks said in an AP interview.

Too true, too true.  Here’s the classic bit with Tim Conway as the numb dentist.  It’s more Conway’s piece than Korman’s, but catch Korman’s futile efforts not to crack up.
