If he clutched his chest, then moaned "SHAZAM" before falling over it was a good death.

15 years ago I bought the skull of George "Goober" Lindsey. Tried reselling it on Ebay a few years ago, figuring that the value has probably gone up. Come to find out, he was at the time still alive. Now that he's dead, let's see anyone tell me that it's not his skull because he's still alive!!!

Did you beat him to death with his own skull? Because that sounds physically impossible.

I thought he was dead already.

No, but that does give me an idea for Leonard Nimoy's skull that I bought last year.

Burl Ives - Goober Pyle

Sitting by the roadside on a summer's day
Chatting with my mess-mates, passing time away
Lying in the shadows for a little while
Goodness, how delicious, eating Goober Pyle.

Pyle, Pyle, Pyle, Pyle
Eating Goober Pyle
Goodness, How it's vile,
Eating Goober peas.

When a horse-man passes, the soldiers have a rule
To cry out their loudest, "Mister, here's your mule!"
But another custom, that isn't out of style
Is wearing out your grinders, eating Goober Pyle.


Pyle, Pyle, Pyle, Pyle
Eating Goober Pyle
Goodness, How it's vile,
Eating Goober Pyle.

Just before the battle, the General hears a row
He says "The Yanks are coming, I hear their rifles now."
He looks down the roadway, and then he starts to smile
It's The Georgia Militia eating Goober Pyle.


Pyle, Pyle, Pyle, Pyle
Eating Goober Pyle
Goodness, How it's vile,
Eating Goober Pyle.

I think my song has lasted just about enough.
The subject is interesting, but the rhymes are mighty rough.
I wish the war was over, cuz I'm filled with black bile
We'd kiss our wives and sweethearts, say bye to Goober Pyle.


Pyle, Pyle, Pyle, Pyle
Eating Goober Pyle
Goodness, How it's vile,
Eating Goober Pyle

This should be on the main page. I am always sadden by the passing of a TAGS character. I have watched them so much it almost feels as if a member of the family or a close friend has died. I just watched 3 TAGS episodes last night, still my favorite show of all time. I am not ashamed to say that when it comes time for Andy to pass I will probably be inconsolable. God Bless you Goober, you will be missed.

From wiki:

Following Hee Haw, George "Goober" Lindsey had a short cameo in the Rose Bowl episode of NewsRadio, he was called as a witness in a consumer fraud civil case (where Mr. James bought what he thought was actual movie memorabilia from a teenage kid, but was actually fake) and was asked to identify and authenticate one of the items. Lindsey was asked only one question: "Mr. Lindsey, is this your skull?" He then took the skull in hand, examining it carefully, and said, "no." At that point he was dismissed. He is also seen at the end of the episode buying those same fake artifacts from Mr. James, who was trying to pawn them off as actual set pieces and movie memorabilia from popular films, including, once again, Lindsey's own supposed skull.

D'oh, I should have come in with this instead of my earlier smartass remark:

Well, *pffft* he's gone.

2012-05-06 06:17:05 PM  
That's too bad, 83's a good run though. From everything I've heard & read he had a lot of fun, was a lot of fun to be around & very, very few people had anything bad to say about him. Not a bad epitaph really.

/thanks for the laughs Goob, you will be missed

CSB time: I met George Lindsey when I was a wee lad (about 5) at a Roy Clark celebrity golf tournament here in Tulsa. The things that stand out to me were that he wore a red jumpsuit with a logo on it that was a golf ball wearing the trademark Goober hat, and that he was kind of a dick (although I didn't have quite those words at the time to describe him). Maybe he just didn't like kids.
