Dick Van Dyke Still Merry, Poppin' Jokes and Wisdom

Usually when someone 82 years old spits out some gibberish, we begin to wonder about their health. But in the case of Dick Van Dyke, it's a sign of his durdoadidumdability.

Van Dyke sang "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" on Monday night at the Geffen Playhouse during a tribute to actress Annette Bening and studio chief Robert A. Iger.

Van Dyke even recreated a bit of the choreography from "Mary Poppins" with the current Broadway stars of "Poppins" and "Mermaid," Ashley Brown and Sierra Boggess. "The secret to keeping moving," Van Dyke said, "is keeping moving."
It's when he topples over furniture he doesn't see that we begin to grow concerned.
