Don Knotts 2/26/06

Sitcom legend Don Knotts passed away. He's probably best known for playing Barney Fife on The Andy Griffith Show. I was more of a fan of his work as the sniffling swinging heip cat landlord on Three's Company. Rest in peace Don, its been a tough week at CITW headquarters.

Goodbye Don Knotts
Sitcom watchers knew you well
You played Barney Fife as a fool
Single bullet as Andy Griffin would tell
You crawled out of West Virginia
With a dream in your hand
Played a talking fish
Then Mr. Furley, Jack’s friend again

And it seemed to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing when to think
Jack was a gay guy again
And it seemed that I would know you
When I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
The Regal Beagle ever did
