Jeez. I almost forgot it was the Summer of Death. Now I remember. He died of a heart attack this morning. He was only 59. :( .

You will be missed, John Hughes. You’re in heaven now, going easy on the Pepsi with the angels.

  3. I would have gone with the Judd Nelson fist pump at the end of The Breakfast Club, but to each their own. Once again my childhood is slowly dying. :(

  4. Will this summer never end???

  5. “You guys give up yet? Or are you thirsty for more?” No. No more.

    • Wow, looks like I just lost the game. The “Quote Home Alone” game. Uhhhhh is this toothbrush approved by the American Dental Association?

  7. Gabe, it is so creepy how you just turned 59 this week, and this famous guy died this week at age 59! Are you thinking a lot about your own mortality right now?

    Stay strong, you can do it.

  8. What a fcking blow. This news just knocked the wind out of my sails.

  10. I would post a jpg of Molly Ringwald crying in Pretty in Pink, but I probably couldn’t find one and I don’t know how to do that and I’m a failure. I’m sad.

  11. No more yanky my wanky… :(

    no, he’s not retarded.

  13. Dammit all.

  14. *cue “Don’t You Forget About Me”

  15. I’m going to see if I can get my car to backfire in memory of the Johns. Once for John Hughes and once more for John Candy.

  16. Donger’s here for five hours, and he’s got somebody. I live here my whole life, and NOW EVERYONE WHO MADE MY CHILDHOOD AWESOME IS DROPPING FUCKING DEAD. Summer 2009, you stay the FUCK away from my grandma.

  17. i do have a test today. that wasn’t bullshit. it’s on european socialism. i’m not european, i don’t plan on being european, so who gives a crap if they’re socialists?

    I don’t think I want to know a six-year-old who isn’t a dreamer, or a sillyheart. And I sure don’t want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don’t have a college degree. I don’t even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they’re ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they’re no good. You so much as scowl at my niece, or any other kid in this school, and I hear about it, and I’m coming looking for you!

    Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam.

  20. The next time I have to come in here, I’m cracking skulls!

    RIP

  21. “Auto-mo-biiiiiiiiilllle?”

  22. He hadn’t written a movie since ’98. Hadn’t directed since ’91. Which always made me sad.

    But as Ferris would say, at least he took the time to stop and look around for awhile.

    This makes me so, so sad. What a joyful man.

  23. You said you couldn’t be with someone who didn’t believe in you. Well I believed in you. You just didn’t believe in me. I love you… always.

  24. It’s like being at the kids’ table at Thanksgiving – you can put your elbows on it, you don’t have to talk politics… no matter how old I get, there’s always a part of me that’s sitting there.
    John Hughes

    Me too! RIP

  25. What the hell Pepsi?!? Killing off 80′s stars like Michael Jackson and now John Hughes. It’s not our fault Crystal Pepsi sucked. Stay away from those Carebears!

  26. I did not see this one coming. I usually make fun of people who take celebrity deaths seriously, but this actually put me in a really weird mood right now.

  27. Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

  28. Lets hope god wasn’t a ducky fan. I still struggle to forgive john hughs for not thinking that ducky deserved the love of his life.

  29. We didn’t spill paint in God’s garage- so why is he punishing us?

  30. Well this is just taking it too far. First MJ, then Billy Mays, and now this? NO. STOP IT ALREADY!

  31. “Relax, would you? We have seventy dollars and a pair of girls underpants. We’re safe as kittens. ”
    -16 Candles

  32. also, three simple words: GRISWALD. FAMILY. CHRISTMAS.

  33. When you grow up, your heart dies.
    Who cares?
    I care.

    RIP Mr. Hughes :(

  34. Maybe THIS is the Rapture, instead of Kirk Cameron vanishing into thin air leaving only his clothes behind. The rest of us fuckers are sticking around until 2012!

  35. the 80′s may have been really over 19 years ago, but with mr. hughes now gone it’s REALLY over.

  36. “How can I possibly be expected to handle school on a day like this?”

    This one helped so much. Serious.
    (Sigh….)

    Heaven is too crowded with 80′s angels now.

  38. Fighting words (image)

  39. Classy.

  40. somebody must be getting their GIF on pretty hard right about now…

  41. If Kenny retaliates, it will be like the two kings of videogum going head to head. The only way it could end is with a huge power surge that destroys the servers and eventually the world.

  42. I know I SUPPORTED YOUR last image, and I still LOVE YOU despite YOU DISLIKING me (I think), but I just HAVE TO SAY that I cannot ENDORSE THIS image.

    John HUGHES was a TOP CHEF Master of the LOL’s and THE HEART Fuzzies (TM). YOU WILL BE MISSED, GOOD SIR!

  43. I can endorse and get behind that link x 1000. You, sir, are officially the best.
