This week's GBE2 Theme is Tribute, so as a humor blogger, I choose to focus on one of my comedy role models, Rita Rudner. Years ago, I saw her live in Memphis and have used her "Don't pull the plug until I'm a size six" joke ever since.
Here are a few Rita Rudner quotes.
I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.
Men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage - they've experienced pain and bought jewelry.
To attract men, I wear a perfume called "New Car Interior."
I don't plan to grow old gracefully. I plan to have face-lifts until my ears meet.
Neurotics build castles in the air, psychotics live in them. My mother cleans them.
I got kicked out of ballet class because I pulled a groin muscle. It wasn't mine.
And finally, here is a fun Rita Rudner clip.
