Rodney Dangerfield was born 100 years ago today, on 22-November-1921. I was aware of him as a comedian for most of my life, but then in the 1980s and 90s he had a second career appearing in movies. I loved his delivery. He died in 2004. "I don't get any respect."
"I tell ya, when I was a kid I had it rough. Once on my birthday, my old man gave me a bat. The first day I played with it, it flew away."
"What a childhood I had. My parents sent me to a child psychiatrist. The kid didn’t help me at all."
"I tell ya, when I was a kid I got no respect. My parents got divorced. They had a custody fight over me. No one showed up."
"I went to the fights last night, and a hockey game broke out."
My late father-in-law loved Caddyshack. I don't think I ever saw it all the way through. Sometimes I think I am a snob.
