RIP: Randy "Macho Man" Savage

Famed professional wrestler Randy "Macho Man" Savage died early Friday morning after suffering a heart attack at the wheel of his 2009 Jeep Wrangler in Seminole, Florida. He crossed the median, hit a tree, and was pronounced dead a short time later at Largo Medical Center.

Why am I posting this on Bonez? My friends know I've never been any kind of wrestling fan (well, not after puberty anyway) and I've heard that Slim Jims have enough chemicals in them to keep your pool clean. No, I'm honoring the "Macho Man" because of this:

Randy Savage provided the voice for the character "Rasslor" in the Dexter's Laboratory episode of the same name (season 1, episode 2). You can watch the episode here. My four year old son loves the show and we've caught him posing in the bathroom mirror, flexing his muscles and calling himself "Rasslor". It's just too cute.

Shit, and it was the day before The Rapture too. That's fucked up.

Savage went to stop the rapture....he knew because of the just wasn't the right time.

Savage, being hall of fame status in Professional wrestling, also contributed to many, many things artistic.

He voiced characters on Space Ghost occasionally, many different cartoon network shows and aninamted films, was bonesaw in Spiderman.

Randy Savage was one of my all time favorite wrestlers, ohhhhhh yeah..... and unlike many other wrestlers, he walked away from wrestling when he realized he was too old to perform (unlike Hogan and Flair) So, long live the Macho King, The Macho Man and may his Madness reign supreme for years to come....
