Rickles remembers where he came from

The king of insult humor returns to his native New York for and his first target is his old neighborhood in Queens. “I grew up in Jackson Heights,” Rickles says while calling from his Los Angeles home. “Jackson Heights has changed a lot. It’s changed so much I call it Haiti.”

Don Rickles: Funny man (and Jackson Heights native) is still quick with the insults

Too bad hes rarely funny.Anybody can just insult someone.Roasts and racial jokes are funny once in a while, but get old quick.The Hindu community in jackson Heights is great, although there a minority to the larger Bengali groups in the area that are more conservative.

Rickles always made me laugh. But then again, what does an uncouth Archie Bunker like me know about comedy? After all, we are all on our way out, right enlighted and sophisticated urban pioneers?

What's that got to do with Don Rickles, or Jackson Heights?

Or are you simply trying to exhibit your "cosmopolitan sophistication" for the whole world to see?

Haiti? This makes little sense.

How about third world slum?

There is the ticket!

Did not Hilllary secure a king's ransom for that lipstick on a pig, the 'International Express?'

One of the great urban delights of the underbelly of our fine city is to drive under the el at midnight.

Diverse! Colorful! Vibrant!

Slum....
