RIP Gene Wilder

Gene Wilder has died.

Forget Johnnie Depp. Wilder was the perfect Willy Wonka. All-powerful, moral, yet utterly irresponsible. He is a major contributor to my view of  the nature of God.

He's now the star in a new film: "Everything you wanted to know about Death, but were afraid to ask." May his saddles ever blaze,


  1. As his coffin is lowered someone simply must make a farting sound... I'm sure he would approve.

  2. And may perpetual light shine upon him. He was superb in Young Frankenstein, too (and that didn't involve any farting!).
