Tim Conway (1933 - 2019, and Still Funny)

Comedian Tim Conway died yesterday at the age of 85. The news brought back a certain memory from my youth: the "Dentist" sketch from The Carol Burnett Show. In that classic piece of television comedy, Tim Conway played the titular character with a bad aim. What should have been a simple injection of Novocaine turned into multiple injections....on himself.

Patient patient Harvey Korman had what's referred to today as "painless dentistry".

It remains one of the funniest sketches I've seen. Mr Korman thought so, too....
