Ten Years Have Passed, with the Length of Ten Long Winters

I just found out that this week marks the tenth anniversary of the passing of Chris Farley, who was taken far too soon from us. (I can't believe it's been ten years already).

I remember watching and actually enjoying Saturday Night Live back in the early-mid 90s when he was on the show. Here's one of my favourite Farley sketches.



Farley's humour was neither clever, nor urbane, nor ironic. His was a "pure" humour, and he made it look so easy.
