On Sunday, the actor responded perfectly to a lame joke British TV personality Piers Morgan made about his name.
“Imagine being called Dick Van Dyke in the PC-crazed era?” Morgan began in his tweet. It got lamer.

Good thing that Van Dyke’s “Diagnosis Murder” doctor, Mark Sloan, was on call to respond in a surgically precise takedown. No words necessary.
Van Dyke, who starred in “Mary Poppins” and will soon appear in “Mary Poppins Returns,” needed no accompaniment from a magical nanny to handle this one.
