Funniest Don Rickles Moment

This morning Don "Mr. Warmth" Rickles died at his home in Los Angeles at age 90. I have always thoroughly enjoyed his comedy shtick. Above is my favorite comedy scene involving him and as if that was not enough, Frank Sinatra and Johnny Carson appear in it. I'm struck by the fact these three man and Ed McMahon also featured in this segment are all gone now forever. I also enjoyed Don Rickles in the 1970 movie Kelly's Heroes in which he plays "Supply Sergeant  Crapgame". Note: the getting down on Rickles knees and reporting in mafiosa talk in this segment by Rickles is a comedic reference to allegations at the time that Sinatra was in cozy with various Italian mafia figures which was never confirmed.
