Did You Know?
If I can make people smile, then I have served my purpose for God.
He was extremely offended by "blue humor" and publicly made note of any comedian who used it because he felt that it cheapened the art of comedy. He very closely observed every skit that went on his show to make sure that it could not be twisted into a double entendre.
Always ended his TV show and specials with, "Good night and may God bless."
