When everyone's favorite actor, Jack Lemmon, was in the hospital dying about a decade ago, he was inspiringly uncomplaining and patient, according to Jack's actor son Chris Lemmon.

But through all that impressive dignity, Jack managed to keep his bawdy humor intact.

In fact, in his memoir, Chris remembers that the nurses were all too familiar with Jack's favorite quip:

"Wanna sneak a peek at Stiffy?"

I'd rather look at his two Oscars.

I had a "gay crush" on a lady who was a bit older than I was and I told her so.  She said, "But Jonster, you're 15 years younger than I am . . . and you're Gay!"  She says I responded:  "Nobody's perfect."  Now I know where (one of us) got that line.  Ha!

PS: In the same book, Shirley MacLaine refers to Jack's "purple throbber," but I think she meant his heart.
