Michael Keaton! What the hell? I don't believe Buster Keaton isn't on here but Michael Keaton is. That's like putting in Aaron Pryor instead of Richard Pryor...And...Charlie...Sheen...but not Charlie Chaplin. Plus, why have Pee-Wee Herman instead of Herman Munster-wait-no, nevermind that last part.

I think that Pee-wee Herman at the end of the list was part of the Joke. And Herman musnter used to crack me up back in the day.

Hey, let's be clear...I'm not saying pee-wee wasn't funny! He used to crack me up when we were at the movie theatre. He had this thing that he would do. Man, it was funny. I won't go into it but it used to crack people up.
