Comedian Don Rickles may be 89, but he hasn’t lost his touch for classic insults. On Tuesday, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon became the latest victim.

“You’ve got a good crowd here. Twelve people,” Rickles told Fallon.

Rickles, who first appeared on the Tonight Show in 1965, has been a staple of late night TV for decades. His jokes were not in short supply Tuesday.

“We’ve known each other a long time,” said Rickles. “I’m delighted that you have a show because you’re fresh, you’re funny, you’re great. And I want you to know something from my heart, I never liked you.”
