Headline Muse, 4/18

You may laugh, you may snicker, or chortle,
But some thought he’d discovered a portal—
Now, eternal youth’s spark
Has eluded Dick Clark,
And we learn that the man is … mere mortal.

Headline: ‘America’s oldest teen’ Dick Clark dies

Either 82 years old, or approximately 16.

    An American icon. Too bad.
    I remember an old Far Side cartoon, where the caption read, “Suddenly, on national television, Dick Clark ages two hundred years in thirty seconds.” Well, all flesh is grass. RIP, Dick Clark.

    Hey, at least “American Headstone” has a new host.

    Yep, end of an era, he’ll be missed.

    Die Anyway

    Only 82, damn. As I get closer and closer, I’m thinking that’s not so old.
