Would you believe 86 gets deep-sixed?

The man who survived countless KAOS hits has died. Don Adams, famous for playing Maxwell Smart in the 1960s Get Smart series, was 82. Not 86.
Adams died of a lung infection late Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, his friend and former agent Bruce Tufeld said Monday, adding the actor broke his hip a year ago and had been in ill health since. As the inept Agent 86 of the super-secret federal agency Control, Adams captured TV viewers with his antics in combatting the evil agents of Kaos. When his explanations failed to convince the villains or his boss, he tried another tack: "Would you believe...?" It became a national catchphrase.
Sorry about that, Chief.
