Yeah, I realized it might look like I was piling on Altitude, although careful my friend, the mods apparently don't like people using Fark to show how idiotic Freepers are.

Quick question, did Andy ever get off of the island?
Last time I remember, he had a problem with a giant spider.....and before that, the Harlem Globetrotters.

I sent CNN a news tip: "Andy Griffith has passed away. He is no more, just like your credibility. Though, he does have a better chance of rising again than do your ratings."

No sir. It was Aunt Bea's pickles. Or "kerosene cucumbers", as barney called them.


I heard Aunt Bea was a real biatch behind the scenes. Don't let television fool you, kids.

Was surprised to learn Jim Nabors is still alive, making him probably the eldest surviving cast member.

I don't usually give a rats ass about the passing of a celebrity but when I told my wife about it this morning, I almost choked up.

The Andy Griffith Show will forever be one of the finest shows in history. It showed how a community could and should be. Neighbors that know each other, people helping people, respect all around. AG took a back seat to Barney so that he could get the laughs. The show was written where he would often give Opie enough rope to venture out, maybe get in trouble but not hang himself. And learn a lesson in life doing it. Mayberry was depicted as being as close to Utopia as you could get. And they did a fantastic job doing it. I think society as a whole would be so much better if we had more Mayberry today.

I thank him for his contribution to society. RIP.

Altitude5280: UNC_Samurai: Churchy LaFemme: The Teabaggers might be too distraught to protest Obamacare this weekend...

No, sadly, they'll complain about how he was in favor of health care reform and how he criticized the Bush Administration about the Patriot Act.

Via Freepville-To: Semper911; All
Well, I used to have a soft spot for "Sheriff Taylor", but after the Obamacare debacle was passed with Andy Griffith leading the cheering for it, I saw a different person.

Griffith was a total communist and hated this country. He was a bitter resentful person as Libs usually are.

He was wasting air that someone else deserved.

I won't miss him in the least.


No doubt they said similar things when Carroll O'Connor died. They were so disappointed when they found out he was nothing like Archie Bunker.
 
2012-07-03 12:44:01 PM  

Godscrack: Degenz: Thanks, I deserved that. Still doesn't change the fact that twerps are derps

C'mon, you knew beforehand what you would see in this thread. I grew up watching the Andy Griffith show too.

I used to admire how he wore his uniform, the seat clinging to his bottom just so. And how one leg of his pants always seem to get stuck at the top of his boot. And Aunt Bea's hot pies.


Good point. And probably also explains why he never had a "sidearm."

hbk72777: icon

I forgot my IPOD ,so I had to listen to the local music stations. I heard the Andy Griffith theme, and thought "these damn southerners really do think Andy is god.

Then I get home and find out he died.

/moved to NC 2 years ago.

//you people need new icons already


As a native North Carolinian, let me say how glad I am that you've been here 2 years. No doubt you've been culturally educating the local benighted hicks, and their gratitude is, er, immeasurable. I'm sure we've all got it now, though, so you can leave. Really. And thanks.

More trivia: The theme of the AGS was written by Earl Hagen, who also composed "Harlem Nocturne". That one mind could conceive both those melodies is amazing.

That was the only thing i could think of but wasn't sure if I missed something.

I can't talk about stretching. Someone named Maurice died so I put up 5 pics of Kyle Reese from Terminator and said R.I.P. More Reese

John Boy and Billy was an okay show until they decided to go to the Derp Side.

There, I bolded the part you probably didn't read. Thanks for your contribution to this thread, it's one for the archives I'm sure.

TODAY is a sad day. I am not ashamed to admit I shed a tar or two when I saw the headline. The TAGS has always been an escape for me, of a time that has passed and of a time I wish could be again. I have watched the show so long that it almost feels as if the cast members were people you knew. Godspeed Andy, I hope that Barney was waiting for you on the other side. Thanks for the forty years of entertainment. Hollywood will be hard pressed to find another like you.
