Tyrus Wong, legendary 'Bambi' artist, dies at 106

quote [ When “Bambi” art director Tom Codrick saw Wong’s sketches he said, ‘Maybe we put you in the wrong department.’ The rest of the team agreed, including Walt Disney. ]

Well, that's just Wong.

112 people named Wong died in the last couple of weeks - that's a lot of Wong numbers

2016 strikes from beyond the grave!

Yeah, 2016 just barely got him. But y'know, at 106 it almost really shouldn't count.
I mean, that's serious extra innings.

Charles Manson seriously ill, moved to hospital, sources say. Perhaps 2017 is The Punisher, to 2016's Doctor Doom.

If he lives through this, I bet Manson becomes the new Abe Vigoda.
