RIP Frank Drebin

In November 2010, the world lost a comedic genius.

Leslie Nielsen was admitted to a Fort Lauderdale, Florida hospital for pneumonia. On 28 November, Doug Nielsen, Leslie’s nephew, announced that his uncle had died in his sleep, due to complications from pneumonia. But as Frank once said to Nordberg’s wife: “That’s no way for a man to die. Getting caught in the gears of a combine; getting your balls bit off by a Laplander; having your parachute not open, now that’s how I’d like to die.” Well no such luck, Frank.

All kidding aside, our heartfelt condolences go out to Mr. Nielson and his family.

Here’s a clip featuring two of the greatest law enforcement officers to wear a badge.
