Reason #58 not to base your entire damn career on someone else’s.

From Wikipedia's entry on comedian Vaughn Meader, before the Big PlungeVaughn Meader:

"Abbott Vaughn Meader (March 20, 1936 – October 29, 2004) was an American comedian and impersonator whose meteoric rise to fame with The First Family album spoofing President John F. Kennedy was equalled only by his meteoric crash into obscurity with Kennedy's assassination in 1963."

Alex Says:  Goddamn.  "Meteoric crash into obscurity" seems a particularly harsh way of phrasing it.  But it gives me hope that people like Jesse Camp and Mayim Bialik may truly be gone forever.
