a few years ago some older woman came up to me at work and told me that "paul newman had nothing on me."

a co-worker asked me what the woman said. i told her and she said, "you mean the guy with his face on salad dressing bottles?"



To celebrate his life we got pizza, drank wine, and watched one of his funniest featuring roles--that of a crazed bohemian painter in the 1964 Shirley MacLaine vehicle "What a Way to Go." RIP indeed.

Nice one, Stu — I forgot all about that one. In fact, I only saw it once, about 35 years ago, but now that you mention it I can still remember how much I laughed when I saw him getting tangled up in that painting contraption.
