Goodbye, Herr Müller-Lüdenscheid!

Everybody knows that this day will eventually come, yet it still makes you particularly sad sometimes when some of the greats pass away, no matter their age. Today is such a day because he who was probably Germany’s greatest humorist, caricaturist, comic artist and comedian, Loriot, has left us at the age of 87. I dare say you will not find many Germans who didn’t love the works of that gentle old man and his intellectual, yet deeply human and never offending humor, be it his TV sketches, his comical figures or his books which are so unlike the crude in-your-face comedy you often have today. He’s leaving a void that won’t be filled any time soon by anyone…
