Goulet Wednesday News Round Up: If Ever I Would Leave You Edition.


RIP, buddy.

Dear friends,

It is with a heavy heart (and a heavier ass) that I regret to inform you that the patron saint of this blog, Robert Goulet, passed away in LA while awaiting a lung transplant. Bee-Spot reader John called me last night to break the news. It was a tough phone call that drove me into a despair that could only be cured by eating more barbeque than I should've, but that's really neither here nor there. What's important is the legacy that Mr. Goulet has left behind. If and when I find out what that is, I probably won't let you know. It might be his turn as Lancelot in the classic musical Camelot or his brilliant work in Naked Gun 2 1/2: The Smell of I wish Leslie Nielson Were My Grandpa. In the meantime...

Nature! - This is probably, literally the eighth time I've posted this. And it never gets old. And there's this one too.

Is it wrong that YOU were the first thing I thought of when I heard this sad news this morning?

A Someecard to help you deal with your loss is on the way.

Robert Goulet was still alive?

Wow.

Well, too bad he died now, though.

Don't forget 'Red Ships Of Spain'.

[It's the second one.]

I had forgotten about Naked Gun 2 1/2!

What's the deal with the Presley lady in those movies? Is that Elvis's daughter? or wife? How does she relate to Michael Jackson?

I realize I could probably just wikipedia it, but since I'm already here...

Big Daddy said...

That was Priscilla, his wife.

Lisa Marie is his daughter who was married to Jackson.
