Original King Bernie Mac, 50, Dies Of Complications Due To Pneumonia

Really sad Saturday news: "A publicist says Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor and comedian Bernie Mac has died at age 50. Publicist Danica Smith says Bernie Mac died early Saturday at a hospital in the Chicago area of complications due to pneumonia. The comedian suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease that produces tiny lumps of cells in the body's organs, but he had said the condition went into remission in 2005. He recently had been hospitalized and treated for pneumonia." This man made us laugh like no one else and was a constant reminder that "fun is fun, jokes is jokes." An embed of part of his brilliant Original Kings Of Comedy performance - in which he famously breaks down the word "motherfucker" - after the jump.
