"I put the Phil Hartman hex on you. You're the Next To Die."

This is actually too good of a story that I've been meaning to post for quite sometime, and I actually had a very disturbing picture of Andy Dick (who I'll admit, I often find funny) to put up along with this, but I went the classy route and put one up as Phil Hartman (who, ironically enough, I loved for his Troy McClure and other other Simpsons voices but didn't find to be ALL that funny on SNL). In fact, I'm more impressed the man did the album cover for Steely Dan's "Aja" album.

But here's the whole story behind the whole Jon Lovitz beating up Andy Dick incident. And it's a doozy, from Andy coming up to Lovitz and saying, “I put the Phil Hartman hex on you. You’re the next to die.” But evidently it ran deeper than that. The falling out between the two former friends allegedly took place because Lovitz accused none other than Andy Dick himself of being the person who convinced Phil Hartman’s wife to jump off the wagon and return to the wonderful, wacky world of psychotic behavior helped along by illegal substance abuse.

Frankly, I'm surprised that Jon Lovitz and Andy Dick aren't in a lot more fights. But Lovitz thought he was doing society a favor by going postal on Andy.

Watch "Danny Roane: First Time Director", which was written and directed by Andy Dick, and it's actually quite funny. I've always laughed at the guy. Sure he's crazy as hell, but count me as a fan.

Why do I get the feeling that that fight was a lot of slapping and wrestling on the floor.

Oh I'm sure it wasn't unlike DeNiro and Pesci in Raging Bull on the kitchen floor.

i saw andy twice the week after his beatdown. he did not look like a happy camper. i think he was pretty aware that everyone around him was snickering at him.
