ADDENDUM to Peter Boyle Got Dissed In His Own Obituary

So, shortly after posting this, I was speaking to a co-worker and mentioned Peter Boyle had died. The following conversation then occured:

Co-worker: "Who's Peter Boyle?"
Me: "He was the Monster in Young Frankenstein."
Co-worker: "I never saw that."
(At which point I slapped her... in my mind, anyway.)
Me: "Well, he was in The Dream Team, ... (No recognition) Joe, ...(Nothing) Malcolm X?! ..."(Nada)
Co-worker: "Doesn't sound familiar."
Me: (Slowly and unwilling...) "He played the dad on Everybody Loves Raymond."
Co-worker: "OH! I know him! He died? Awww..."
Me: (Beating my head against a wall.) "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

[Sigh],
