    Carol Burnett receives Mark Twain Award

    http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/...ze-dc-20628570

    "This is very encouraging," Burnett, 80, deadpanned in accepting the prize. "I mean it was a long time in coming, but I understand because there are so many people funnier than I am, especially here in Washington.

    "With any luck, they'll soon get voted out, and I'll still have the Mark Twain prize."

    One of my favorite routines ever: NSFW: (what a cast!!)

    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    Life was great in the good old days when things could be genuinely funny. It's enough to make me feel sad.

    Carol Burnett is an amazing woman.

    eta: I was almost in tears watching these videos.

    Still funny after all these years! My favorite part is the scene where she comes down in the curtains- with the rod sticking out- "Oh this is just something I saw in the window".
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.
