RIP, Dom DeLuise

Posted By on Tue, May 5, 2009 at 2:26 PM

Fans of pun laden, lowbrow humor are no doubt saddened today by the passing of Dom Deluise. I know I am. Originally, I wanted to post the pre-pie fight clip from the Mel Brooks classic, Blazin' Saddles, as it's one of my favorites — the clip and the film, in general. But upon further review, I think it may be a tad off-color, even for this blog. If you're not easily offended, you can check it out here. If you are easily offended, please click here.

Instead, I found this scene from Haunted Honeymoon, featuring DeLuise and the late, great, Gilda Radner. It's a tad racy, sure. But it's also funny as hell.
