To remember with a laugh the late, great Canadian comedian Leslie Nielsen, Esquire magazine has reprinted an interview where he shares what he's learnt in his life. Nielsen, who was best known for his roles in Naked Gun and Airplane, died at the age of 84 from complications with pneumonia on November 28.

It was a boy's name first.

One thing a person won't do when he's laughing is try to beat you up.

When I was a boy, I delivered newspapers on my bicycle at 64 below. The worst part is, I wanted to impress the girls, so I had to look good. I couldn't wear a hat with earflaps. I had to sport the wave. So I'd put some water through my hair and push that wave up over my forehead. Then I'd step outside and splicccchhh -- it would freeze.

On the Arctic Circle, where I grew up, laughter is part of the food of the day. Nobody wants to hear you say, "Gee, it's really cold."
