    RIP Richard Pryor Ride

    We should ride in honor of the man. Then go to someone's house and watch
    Jo Jo Dancer, You're Life Is Calling.

    Richard Pryor should be made an honorary nun, posthumously.

    I was quite saddened to hear of this yesterday. Amongst all of my comedy collection, no one is better than Pryor. When I listen to Eddie I hear Pryor. When I listen to Lawrence, I hear Pryor. Both of them have acknowledged Pryor in their material and deservedly so.

    Personally, I think we should watch Stir Crazy. Pryor and Wilder together was great.

    There's a Richard Pryor St. in Peoria...saw it on the news last night. It's got a sign right under it that says "Formerly SHERIDAN RD." Ha!

    They should name a brothel after him - Pryor's Place like the TV show.

    I would be down for this. I need some mileage and it is beautiful out. Name a time and place and I'm there.

    I will wear my all black polypropylene long underwear, in mourning of course.

    Who will assume the important responsibility of being lit on fire during the ride? I will take care of the free-basing part of the equation.

    We'll have to draw straws for that honor. I'll be reprising his role from The Wiz.

    Well, my polypropylene longjohns are quite flammable and I will be smoking a cigarette or two today, so the possibilty is there...but I'm not promising anything.
