Legendary TV comic and pie-in-the-face receiver Soupy Sales died Thursday in New York after battling "numerous," undisclosed health problems. He was 83. Born Milton Supman to the only Jewish family in Franklinton, North Carolina, Sales eventually landed in Los Angeles and then New York, where his Soupy Sales Show was targeted at kids despite an iconoclastic streak that would later come to influence comics from Pee Wee Herman to the cast of Saturday Night Live. Likely best known for taking thousands of pies in the face alongside the luminaries who appeared on his show, he is making a complete mess of Heaven as we speak -- as it should be. [AP]
