Ralphie May Dead

Heart attack, so not terribly shocking, but still sad. He was hilarious.

Surprised he lived as long as he did.

I've admittedly had issues in my family with people taking care of themselves si I'm probably coming at this from a harsher perspective but...

 

I don't care how funny you are.  I don't care what you accomplish in life.  If you do this to your body you're giving a giant middle finger to everyone who cares to you and I have no sympathy.

Whether he did it to himself or not, it's still sad to see someone die so early. Perhaps even sadder knowing it could have been prevented.

What, someone force-fed him that second piece of pie?

Just saying it's just as sad he died from a heart attack as it would have been had he been killed in a car wreck. At least to me.

I agree. It's still sad. If you have no sympathy for him, don't comment.

I think his issue was beyond just eating too much. I believe he had some health issues and a problem with his thyroid that led to his enormous size. 

 

I mean, he wasn't without blame, though. He apparently had a really serious drug issue that kind of cost him his marriage to Lahna Turner. But from what I remember, he had been trying to work in his weight most of his life.

Take my word for it, fellas, you don't want to mess around with the heart stuff.
