"Why are there incredibly long lines at buffets? At a buffet you serve yourself. You grab and move, grab and move . . . and then repeat the process over and over again.
You know what makes buffet lines so long? Skinny people! They don't move. Skinny people look at the food and talk about it and try to make up their minds if they want to take some or not."
I was going to see him last year in October but the show was cancelled. He went into treatment for an addiction to pain killers. (a binge is a binge is a binge). I love his routines on Halloween candy, the Disney World in August, Italian food, Chinese food, Japanese food, France, Scotland, and Las Vegas. If you never heard them you should go over to You Tube or iTunes and watch/listen. He was very funny. His routines are still funny.
What is not funny is that the very subjects that made him funny are what ultimately lead to his death. His doctor said he suffered from heart and liver disease. No autopsy is being done. He was 52 this year.
I am so sorry he will never reach the point where he does a brilliant routine on loose skin, passing the buffet for the salad bar or the love/hate relationship with his exercise plan. If he had ever found a healthy solution for his morbid obesity he could have been even funnier. I wish he could have experienced that.
Rest in peace, John. May you find harmony with the skinny people in heaven.
