    RIP Richard Pryor

    From CNN.com

    Comedian Richard Pryor died Saturday of a heart attack, his wife told CNN. He was 65. Pryor had been ill with multiple sclerosis. Pryor became a legend of comedy by tapping his rage and agonies for laughs. He was the biggest name in standup comedy in the 1970s, winning Grammy awards for his comedy albums. He also appeared in nearly 40 films. Pryor had long been in fragile health. He suffered a massive heart attack and underwent triple bypass surgery in 1990.

    That was a funny movie. Although I don't think it is as bad as the day Mr. Rogers died...

    I think them eating the beans by the camp fire is definately a classic, and "Excuse me while I whip this out."

    I think the whole movie is a classic. It's probably the only movie i have on VHS and the only reason i have a VCR.

    Richard Pryor was an awesome comedian and will be missed.
    Blazing Saddles was a great movie and you probably couldn't make it today. All the politically correct cementheads would go crazy.
    Richard Pryor was not in blazing saddles though. His co-star in Stir Crazy was(Gene Wilder).
    Stir Crazy was a great flick. "We bad, we bad......".
