Knock Em Out

Isn't Dick Van Dyke adorable?! He's old and cuddly and belts out a wicked cockney accent. He's a man from the age before the paparazzi made every celebrities life a misery and he can still see the funny flattering side of some feral stranger shoving a camera in your face as you try to go about your daily chores.

He was "papped" coming out of a Supermarket last week and he wrote a letter to the local newspaper thanking them for experience:-

Monday morning as I was leaving the supermarket with my Raisin Bran and prunes, out of the corner of my eye, I caught the flash of a camera. Sure enough, it was paparazzi. Or maybe paparazzo, it was just the one guy. I suppose Monday is a slow day for celebrity watching. But still, he knew me! He saw beyond the white hair, the wrinkles and the pot belly. He saw a celebrity under there! I have to admit I was flattered by the attention. Did me a lot of good.

However, out of respect for my fellow celebrities, I decked him anyway.

Dick Van Dyke"

Go on Dick!


  1. Yip he's pretty damn cool. So much cooler that Angela Lansbury.

  2. Oi! Lottie! Nooo!

    Angela Lansbury was Jessica Fletcher. She was Miss Price is Bedknobs and Broomsticks. She was the first Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd. She was Mrs Potts is Beauty and the Beast. Van Dyke rocks but come on...

  3. Dick Van Dyke is my oldest friend.

    At least I wish he was.

    Someday he will be.
