You scared me.

He's retiring the character. Edna has given me a lot of laughs over the years.

I think i had a heart attack.
It's probably wise. I still pee my pants when I hear her but some of the routines have been around since the 70s. "What a lovely frock you have on, dear. Obviously an old favorite!"

"Gay people exist. There's nothing we can do in public policy that makes more of us exist, or less of us exist. And you guys have been arguing for a generation that public policy ought to essentially demean gay people as a way of expressing disapproval of the fact that we exist, but you don't make any less of us exist. You just are arguing in favor of more discrimination, and more discrimination doesn't make straight people's lives any better." -Rachel Maddow to Jim DeMint and Ralph Reed

I wish there was a video online of Dame Edna producing a "sausage surprise" for Joan Bakewell, the lovely but prim British TV presenter. It consisted of sausages sticking proudly upright from pineapple rings and was fantastically vulgar.

I did see the stage show in London, many years ago.

I'd forgotten about that. Married to Antonia Fraser and having an affair with Joan Bakewell. Over-achiever.

I had no idea that Barry Humphries was also an artist until we visited a restaurant along the Great Ocean Road in Australia, and there were two of his landscapes in the dining room.
