Man, today is a real bummer. We’re all trying to come to terms with our grief over the man that Dustin brilliantly described as our “crazy uncle who wouldn’t shut up at the dinner table,” and we’ve all been coping with it in our own ways. Many of us on social media. But probably the most meaningful tribute to Robin Williams I’ve seen so far comes from Norm MacDonald — who previously tweeted poignant eulogies to Elaine Stritch and James Garner — in a story about his first time appearing on Letterman, and how Robin Williams tried to help out some punk kid from rural Ontario.

Try not to cry; maybe you’ll have better luck than I did.
