    "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!!)

    What a delightful woman- she has brought laughter to so many people over the years.

    My favorite? Went With the Wind!

    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".
