R.I.P. Robert Schimmel

After losing Isaac Bonewits, the world mourns the passing of yet another great man. Robert Schimmel, a much-underrated comedic genius, has died of injuries sustained in a recent car accident.

If you don't know who Robert Schimmel is, you don't know what you're missing. His routines were equal parts smarts and scatology: he offered laceratingly funny diatribes on subjects ranging from cancer to his sexual foibles.  Get thee hence to his YouTube channel (but for the sake of all that is holy, don't touch that link if you're at work or if your mother is looking over your shoulder)!
