The Daily Ping

Apple did not consult with us when they named Ping, Ping.

What passing would sadden you most?

As you probably know, on Monday Tony Randall passed away. So for today’s Ping, I’m going to steal a bit from Ron and Fez. What old celebrities will you be most depressed about when they pass to the next world?

For me: Bea Arthur (because of how much Golden Girls I watched growing up), Carol Spinney (because of his immense contributions to children’s TV as Big Bird), and Jim Perry of Card Sharks fame, especially because I haven’t gotten to talk to him in person yet (though I came close!). I really should include Julia Child (just because she’s one of those cultural icons that’s always been there and you always expect to be there) and Rosa Parks.

Now might also be a good time to remind you of another resource that feels like it’s always been there: Dead-Or-Alive.org.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
