"Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?"



Sadly, Gary Coleman, the star of the Diff'rent Strokes television show that ran for 8 seasons in the late 70's and early 80's, passed away today at the age of 42.  According to CNN.com he died of a brain hemmorhage at a hospital in Provo, Utah.

I remember watching Diff'rent Strokes all the time and wondering (I was a young kid at the time) why he was such a little guy for his age.  He is also sadly another example of a child star who comes to hit bottom.  He apparently discovered his adoptive parents had spent most of his earnings he made while starring in Diff'rent Strokes...

So in honor of Gary's memory, let's try to use the phrase "Whatchoo talkin' 'bout, Willis?" a few times this weekend ...
