I would be extremely remiss in my duties here at SP if I didn't write up a quick note to commemorate the life of one Mr. Don Knotts, who
passed away on Sunday at the age of 81. wadE's
mention of the Barney Fife song means that Knotts has brought more traffic to this site
than any human not named Sue Bird, and on top of that it's Don Freakin' Knotts. Gotta have a soft spot in your heart for Mr. Farley.
Plus he was Wakko Warner's heartthrob, which is comedic gold.
(This also explains the heretofore puzzling spike in the amount of recent search hits for the Barney Fife song.)
So take a moment today to hum the Barney Fife song to yourself, or at least whistle the theme to the Andy Griffith show, just once.
