Dick Van Dyke Almost Gets Roasted In Car

By Jack August 20, 2013 @ 2:48 PM

Dick Van Dyke narrowly escaped dying in a car fire when he was saved right before it blew the fuck up. No, this didn’t happen on the set of the set of  Chitty Chitty Bang Bang 2: Tokyo Drift. The comedy legend pulled over on the side of the 101 in LA after his Jaguar started billowing smoke and flame. A guy named Jason Pennington pulled Van Dyke out of the car before it blew up. Van Dyke wasn’t hurt even though he’s old as fuck. Just goes to show you what shitty cars Jags are. It’s unclear what caused the fire, though I choose to believe that if the car had had a good chimney sweep it would have been OK. Wait…what? Shut up.

    Very few people know this, but Dick Van Dyke is a stage name. He started out doing vaudeville type stuff, and as he tried to go mainstream, his awkward birth name prevented him from getting high profile gigs. Sometime in the 1940′s, a management company suggested he use a stage name. His real name was Penis Von Lesbian.
