What '60 Minutes' Andy Rooney just won't do

September 30, 2011 |  5:16 pm

Looks like his looming retirement isn't making Andy Rooney any less curmudgeonly.

In his exit interview set for Sunday's "60 Minutes," the retiring nonagenarian commentator tells colleague Morley Safer that he isn't about to start being nice to strangers who recognize him from TV.

"I just don't sign autographs," Rooney, capping 33 years on the CBS newsmagazine, says.

Duly noted! Kids, stay away from the cranky man with the bushy eyebrows.

Rooney said last year that he intended to work "until I drop," but health issues have forced him to retire from the show that made him nationally famous. CBS has said he's welcome back whenever he wants.

What do you think of Rooney? Will you be watching his Sunday farewell?
