Carol Burnett receives Mark Twain Award
"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!!)

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.

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.
