(Newser) – At Ryan Dunn's memorial last week, Johnny Knoxville found himself unable to do anything other than mumble and try not to cry. He makes up for it with a touching tribute to his friend and co-star on his blog, writing that his world is "about 134% less funny" without the quick-to-laugh Dunn in it. But Dunn could also be serious, and was a "great listener," always available to talk over a game of pool.

"Ryan also had an enormous capacity to love. His friends and family got a lot, but a lion's share of that went to his sweet and beautiful Angie," Knoxville continues, noting that Dunn was always wondering out loud how he got such a great girlfriend. "Well, it sure wasn't because of the way he smelled that's for sure. ... It was because he had a pure, open heart." Click for more from Knoxville's tribute. (Read more Ryan Dunn stories.)
