Artist Thomas Kinkade dies suddenly.

DAMMIT! DAMMIT ! DAMMIT! Just the other day, after the Garry Marshall mistake, we fired our intern and hired a new one, Owen.

Owen, you’re fired.

My apologies to the Kinkade family. Here is the correct picture:

Ray Davies Ray Davies arrives at the GQ Men of the Year Awards 2010 at the Royal Opera House on September 7, 2010 in London, England.

    Gah! So much of a dweeb that Mrs. Partridge wouldn’t even entertain the idea of dating him. (But in real life she hooked up with Marty Ingles!)

    What’s with IOTW’c continuously getting the wrong face to the RIP?

    Maybe you need your Google checker to be older than 40.

    As of noon PT Saturday, you still have erroneously posted an image of actor Dave Madden, who played the character “Reuben Kincaid” on the Partridge Family.

    Ah lookt it his paintin’s down at the christian store, but ah couldn’t see spendin’ good money like that fer what they wanted. But I got my daughter one o’ them thar paint-by-number kits and darned if it din’t turn out near as good. Ah’m right proud of her, with all due respects to Mr. Kinkade.

    Lots of hateful comments about TK over on the Huff-Poo. Those fools can’t even enjoy a little imaginary utopia in his paintings. A-holes.

    Now THAT”S funny, Diane. Everyone knows that Dems have their sense of humor surgically removed as part of the indoctrination.

    I had a premonition that this was going to happen:

    I’m sleeping and right in the middle of a good dream. Like all at once I wake up from something that keeps knocking at my brain. Before I go insane I hold my pillow to my head and spring up in my bed
    screaming out that KINCAID’S DEAD.

    @BigFurHat,

    When I die I hope you pick a picture of someone more handsome than I am. I’d prefer fond memories that way.

    This guy was an awesome artist. He did capture light like no other. I have a lot of his stuff hanging on my walls. Reminds me of better days. Could not afford them today.
