Makes me want to barth


Les Lye, the Canadian actor who played Barth and other adult foils on the show You Can’t Do That On Television died on Tuesday at the age of 84. When I heard the news I immediately thought of the sick feeling that came over me every time the scene would cut away to a group of kids eating at Barth’s Burgery. Lye may be gone, but the stench of his burgers and the subsequent vomit they induced carries on. In fact, I think I’m getting that sick feeling all over again.
