Jackass Star Ryan Dunn Memorial Haikus

Posted By on Tue, Jun 21, 2011 at 11:46 AM

Ryan Dunn, star of the Jackass stunt TV series and films, died in a fiery car crash in rural Pennsylvania on June 19.

Besides his epic beard, Dunn will likely best be remembered by fans for a stunt in the first Jackass film in which he put a toy car in his keister to confuse an X-ray technician, and for his frequent role as the voice of reason in Jackass cast discussions.

As is BW's tradition for notable deaths, we gathered memorial haikus from our readers to commemorate the man the other cast members called "The Closer," for his ability to perform difficult stunts in the clutch.

Any more memorial haikus readers would like to offer may be submitted via the comments section below.

Ryan Dunn is dead
He crammed a car up his ass
We all laughed at him

Autumn Brock
Beard of Sasquatch
I double-dog dare you to
Jump over heaven's gates

Ryan Dunn died today
The man, the beard, the legend: gone
Lovable buffoon

Barry Ballew
A man who poked fun
Who flew too close to the sun
T'was Ryan "Well" Dunn

Loved by millions
Missed by millions
Rest In peace, old friend

Helluva Jackass
They called him "the closer"
An unmatched rascal

Stuntman and sidekick

Sir Dunn, Jackass star
Lost his life while driving a car

Everyone is sad
To have missed Dunn's final stunt
Tragically un-filmed

That's good chicanery
