Dick Van Dyke is still alive? But you get the feeling that the universe isn't particularly jazzed about dyke. He was just rescued from a burning car. It burst into flames as van was driving along the Ventura freeway in Los Angeles, and he was rescued by a group of off-duty nurses who apparently found him slumped over the steering wheel.
Soon afterwards he tweeted a photo of the melted wreckage along with the caption: An accident like that would have done most people in. Yes, but this is Dick Van Dyke we're death about. He cheats death on a daily basis. This sort of thing has happened before? You don't remember the porpoise incident?

Dick Van Dyke is unkillable.
