Take a moment to remember Nipsey Russell, actor, comedian, game and variety show fixture and the poet laureate of television. To help, here's a poem I've, for some unfathomable reason, never forgotten. It was recited by Russell on some show I can't remember circa the release of the movie Splash.

Everyone's talking about mermaids

I can't figure out why
They're not enough woman to make love to
And not enough fish to fry.

Godspeed, Mr. Russell.
