    From The Hollywood Reporter:

    Comedian Bill Dana, Who Played the Character Jose Jimenez, Dies at 92

    He became a ‘mascot’ for the Mercury astronauts, wrote jokes for Steve Allen and Don Adams and penned one of the funniest ‘All in the Family’ episodes.

    Bill Dana, who created and starred as the earnest character at the center of the “My Name … Jose Jimenez” routine that made him one of America’s most beloved comic performers of the 1960s, has died. He was 92.

    Still no idea why he’s deserving a post in Sci Minus Fi? See this video.

    I like to take a blast before I blast off.

    Farewell, Astronaut Jimenez. The eighth Mercury astronaut for all intents and purposes.
