It's gonna be great when people think they're clever by making gifs of Gallagher smashing his heart, but they're really just Gallagher 2012.
"Maybe it's time to start eating those watermelon, instead of smashing them" - Gallagher's doctor
Sledge-o-Matic Gallagher goes cardiac in comedy club3/15/2012
Gallagher, the comedian who made (one) name for himself by smashing fruit with a sledgehammer (It was the 1980s, kids. This was what we had before Twitter and cat videos) reportedly had a heart attack minutes before a show last night in Texas. Twitter user@Jbodine13 snapped a pic of every watermelon's worst nightmare at Hat Trick's comedy club shortly before he complained about chest pains and was rushed to a Dallas-area hospital. Gallagher ranks as Comedy Central's 100th best comic of all time, a numerical honor that he wasn't thrilled with. "How could I be behind people I never heard of," he asked The Oregonian. "I made 13 one-hour shows for Showtime, which are available on videotape."
