I should be the last person to poke fun at someone dying as a result of diabetes, but that's the most ironically appropriate "celebrity" cause of death since Redd Foxx died of a heart attack.

They were considering an ad campaign wherein he passed the responsibility for getting up at all hours onto his son. I was part of a focus group which informed them that we didn't want to eat donuts made by someone half-awake.
