He looked so healthy. =(
 
2014-04-06 07:05:07 PM
For the uninitiated, his original Chinese buffet routine, back when he was much younger, and heavier.

MUTHERfarkEEEERR!!! Dammmit all to hell! And not a single damn Kardashian dead yet?!! Really, Death? You couldn't take maybe Beiber instead?

I've been by that hotel, and I've been hugely amused by his routine.  This is relevant, and depressing, to my interests.  Sorry to see him go.
 
2014-04-06 08:32:58 PM
Who??
 
2014-04-06 08:33:06 PM
Damn. Goodnight, funny man.
 
2014-04-06 08:33:39 PM
I'd hate to be working at hotel when a fat comedian came through town, the chance of seeing a dead and bloated already bloated body seems to skyrocket.

And now John Pinette.

I think I see a pattern here.

See, the great thing about robbing a dead guy is it's an easy getaway. You know? They can't really chase you.

i'm proud of myself for reading the headline "he go now" and immediately thinking,
"wow, john pinette died?"
 
2014-04-06 08:51:11 PM
I'm just pissed that all the news obits are like "Pinette, best known for being the guy who got robbed in the final Seinfeld episode..."

WTF???  He's best known for his standup.  He was farking funny.

YOU GO NOW!!!  YOU BEEN HERE FOUR HOUR!

/RIP funny man
 
2014-04-06 08:52:26 PM

Fark! Fark it all to hell! My wife and I loved his stand up. So, so disappointed. Hopefully he's found the eternal buffet, where all those Japanese folks can finally, finally see "Free Willy".

/fark!!!!!
 
2014-04-06 08:57:29 PM
So sad, I will miss his comedy. I saw him live once, and couldn't breathe from laughing so hard

Salutations, subby.

Welcome to a free month of TF.
 
2014-04-06 09:15:05 PM
Sad but how long did he really expect to live in that condition?

Now the Seinfeld people look like assholes for that final episode. Well they would if anyone ever re-watched that final episode.
 
2014-04-06 09:15:18 PM
Just hours ago, I took a picture of a car with the license plate NAYNAY so that I could make a John Pinette joke, and now such a joke seems tasteless...

Make it anyway. I use naynay all the time because of him.

Was looking forward to seeing his act next month in Las Vegas.  Enjoy the big Chinese buffet in the sky.

"Pinette, you better save some room at the buffet. I'll be right up!"
 
2014-04-06 09:19:51 PM
I'm extremely saddened by this.  My friend and I had tickets to his comedy show in February that got pushed back to June.

I'm going to be a mess for the next few weeks, as "nay nay" is my favourite way to say no :(

We have done that death march in the middle of August...more than once. 

We saw JP in DC a few years ago, front row about 5 feet from him. He WAS larger than life and unhinged in a really funny way.

Damnit. My wife was actually visibly upset when I told her about 2 hours ago.

He's lost his cherub like demeanor :(
