Dick Van Dyke, 98

Yes, yes congratulations on that Emmy win but...

Why does everyone picture I see of him make him look like some demented madman?

Did you read your own thread title? He's 98.

by Anonymousreply 2June 9, 2024 2:42 AM

All those years of raging alcoholism must have pickled his innards.

by Anonymousreply 3June 9, 2024 2:44 AM

OP, he's 98 years old. Don't be an asshole--give someone that old a fucking break.

His job at this age is not to please you aesthetically.

As opposed to a sane madman?

I love him and would happily blow him as a thank you for making me laugh for so many years.

You're a mess OP, he's just a happy old guy and very kind.

He looks like the old weird gay guy who still likes to get fucked.

In olden times it was rare for someone so tall to live that long.

His twinks keep him young!

He was dancing on the red carpet last night no needing his cane.

He's actually the Gilgo Beach murderer.

His Cockney accent was better than Marlene Dietrich’s.

R19. Well let’s hear Dick do a Berlin working class accent in a German language film.

He's got a female "contestant" and *everything* he does. Right?

by Anonymousreply 21June 9, 2024 8:16 AM

Because you're a shallow asshole who polllutes the world with your bullshit, OP.

I love him.

He's just an Oscar away from EGOT

He looks like a mad scientist who just developed a formula in his lab to kill off a third of the earth's population.

God I love Dick Van Dyke. Part of my childhood and, bless him, he's still here. Aside from being a great performer he seems to be a very happy man who still enjoys making people smile. He's a treasure.

His son is a lunatic gun-toting Trumper, sadly.

There was something sexy about him when he was younger.

I want to know more about his young trio of barbershop singers. Do they accompany him everywhere he goes?

This is surprising to me. How does someone like that live so long? Didn't he also used to smoke too? He seems like someone with a happy disposition. I wonder if positivity is the true key to a long life? Anyway, bless him, always loved him.

So he doesn't look like Prince Philip at his age.

by Anonymousreply 40June 9, 2024 7:54 PM

I think he stopped drinking over 50 years ago. Drinking up to age 45 to 50 is not the greatest for your health, but it’s not as if he’s been drinking for 80 years.

by Anonymousreply 41June 9, 2024 8:30 PM

He’s been blessed with amazing genes; he’s survived both alcoholism and tallness. He’s left-handed too. My god.

He also gave up smoking long time ago when a doctor told him he was seeing scarring in x-rays of his lungs.

They had better hurry up and make the live action The Year Without a Santa Claus movie. We’ve got our Snow Miser, now who do we want for Heat Miser? It should be a gay guy. Harvey Fierstein? Bruce Vilanch?

He was responsible for CBS being inspired to incomprehensibly nickname our lovely family-values TV series the “Dykes Sans Dick” Show!

Did he trip over an ottoman on the way to get his award?

Come to think of it, the tv in my home was on from morning until late night but it was never turned to The Dick Van Dyke show. I don't even know whether it was on during the day or at night.

You sound stupid, r49.

It was a rare 1960s daytime sitcom, R49.

I will be awful sad when he goes.
