With the recent deaths of two of an era's comedic icons,it seems that a door is closing on a golden age of sitcoms. Or do we always look back with rose-colored glasses and therefore our memories are always tainted/tinted?

Here's my tribute to Max.

Henry’s Phoned-In Elegy For Don Adams

KAOS is up to it again,
the Evil Empire, the blood-sucking vampire,
it just came over the wire.

Agent 99 had too much wine
in her mommy-long-legs,
all the way up her pegs,

swimming up to the eggs,
would you believe that?
But, just then Maxwell Smart

went splat as he jumped
from the building in spats
and his shoe-phone

went this way and that,
what did you call ‘em back then?
Smell phones, of course!
