One of my favorite characters


The punchline “KnowwhutImean Vern?” Rang throughout my teenage and young adult years. Whether in a commercial, a movie or a video, Jim Varney was one of the best as Ernest P Worrell.

This morning, as I sit with my coffee and have a smoke break, I was rummaging through Youtube. Ernest Scared Stupid showed up on my feed. Fond memories of Ernest came back.

Wholesome stupidity was his thing. A good thing. Sadly, Jim died of lung cancer in 2000. He is sorely missed. -L
