the moth joke gets me every time

Macdonald once talked about an uncle dying of cancer, skewering how we now describe people suffering from that disease as “waging a battle” because that means the last thing you do before you die is lose. “I’m not a doctor, but I’m pretty sure that if you die, then the cancer also dies at the same time,” Macdonald said on Comedy Central. “That to me is not a loss. That’s a draw.”

I have watched Norm Macdonald deliver “the moth joke” a few times since his passing and laugh every time. His delivery and humor is certainly unique, and it resonated with me. He is still one of my favorite SNL Weekend Update anchors.

RIP, Norm Macdonald.
