That makes Larry a horrible, horrible person or a victim of auto-correct.  Or, y'know, who the fark cares.  At least he's not making fun of someone's attempt to say something meaningful about the man.

He could have just been attempting a Fark RIP meme.

Ridiculously old man makes a typo on the internet. Film at 11.

And, it could have been worse.

All this means is that Larry has taken another celebrity's soul in order to live another 2 months, in accordance with his pact with Beelzebub.

that's not how this works, Larry.

I'm sure it was typed by his 14 year old "assistant" who didn't have a clue who Robin Williams was.

In a shocking coincidence, the comedic actor Robin Williams died yesterday as well.

He was okay in Take That but his solo stuff is much, much better.

People who have nothing better to do than make fun of someone over a typo are the second lowest pieces of shiat on this earth. People who think it's newsworthy are the first. Get a farking life morons.

Morning Edition had several quotes about Williams from comedian "Gilford Gottlieb".  He must've worked with Robert Williams in Will Dempsey's "Aldaldin".
 
2014-08-12 12:07:44 PM  
Yeah, he was the first person CNN called and I heard him pretty blowing RW's career and him as a person so...

/omg a typo!
//kill him!!!

No, no. Aldalin was blown up by the Umpire.

So you're saying these people are worse than pedophiles?

Autocorrect.  Is there nothing it can't do?
 
2014-08-12 01:11:20 PM  
During an interview on CNN last night, Larry King cited a poem called "Mr. Blackwell," describing a well-to-do man who seemed to have everything but went home and put a bullet in his head... IANAEM (I am not an English major), but I'm pretty sure the poem he was thinking of was actually Robinson's "Richard Cory."
 
2014-08-12 01:29:42 PM  
I don't really care what Laurence King is doing even if it's NOT as inane as making a typo on Twitter.

Robin Williams real first name is actually Robert, so maybe Larry was just being extra formal.

So What? Larry King is 80 years old. Let's jump all over him for having a senior moment.

On phone and was rushing. What I meant was I heard him on CNN last night for like an hour just talking about what an awesome person he was and what a great career he had. Obviously the typo was not intentional so who cares? I bet he didn't even write it himself.

At least he didn't send condolences for "Robbie Williams" (there's a British rocker with that name).
Also, what about Michael Jordan / Michael B. Jordan...or Michael Jackson ("Jacko") / Michael Jackson
(LA talk-radio host)....or Robbie Coltrane (British actor) / Ravi Coltrane (jazz musician, son of John)?
(BTW - I have a supervisor named Charlie Brown - yes, that's his name - and I couldn't resist asking him,
"How's Snoopy?")

My mother thought when she heard Dave Thomas (the Wendy's guy) passed away, it was the Dave
Thomas of SCTV (half of Bob & Doug MacKenzie).
 
2014-08-12 03:43:36 PM  
Just wait until Morrisey or Robert Smith passes away. Larry won't know which one was in The Cure, and which was in The Smiths.

I had a co-worker named Kermit. I never once asked him how Miss Piggie was. His wife was really fat, and well, you know......His name was Kermit. The poor man has suffered ever since Sesame Street came out.

/Just kidding--I didnt' know his wife. But what if she had been really fat?

At one of my first legit places at which I worked, my manager was named John (long-Italian-last-name-beginning-with-the-letter-"C".)

He wanted everyone to call him "J.C".

What was amusing was that his second-in-command was a young woman by the name of Mary.

Yes. J.C. + Mary.

/we all had fun with that one.
//Alas, he was a raging cokehead egotistical asshole who got busted for embezzlement and cooking the books and was subsequently fired nearly 3 months after I started. Mary was still there when I left 3 years later.

(And that's not to mention the philosophy instructor who was named Bruce Campbell [back when very damn few knew who that other Bruce Campbell was.])

Back when I used to install satellite dishes, I had a customer one day named Steve King.

I said something to the customer about it, and told him that's kinda funny, because my name is Samuel Clemens. (It isn't.)

When I told the other guys at the shop that later that night, they went, "Who's that?"

"It's Mark Twain's real name."

"Who's that?"

/eye roll

I wasn't fired!

I quit.

I thought that you had taken your ill-gotten funds and emigrated to Bhutan.
