The fabulous Miss Diller has passed away at the ripe young age of 95.

She was a big part of my childhood, and it was great hearing her still doing voice work on Family Guy and other series.

My family still greet each other with a hearty "Howchado howchado howchado, my dear!"

I'm glad she had a good long life.  I remember when PHYLLIS DILLER appeared on GROUCHO MARX's "You Bet Your Life"... before she became famous (of course it was in '70s reruns so we knew right away who she was).  

Good night, PHYLLIS.  We love you.

R.I.P Phyllis Diller, an actress who's been paired up on TV and in the films with many talented people with both great and sometimes terrible results (Fat Spy anyone?), whatever the case Diller was always a memorable presence.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

My biggest memory of her was on "Hollywood Squares" when I was a kid, and sometimes on the Tonight Show when Carson was still running it.  A very funny lady.

RIP Bluesad

I loved it when she voiced the monster's mate in Mad Monster Party.  She was my favorite character in that movie.  RIP

A friend sent these to me:
A selection of comic lines from Phyllis Diller, who died Monday at age 95:

— "I once wore a peekaboo blouse. People would peek and then they'd boo."

— "I never made 'Who's Who,' but I'm featured in 'What's That?' "

— "When I told Fang I was going to have my face lifted, he said, 'Who'd steal it?'"

— "You know you're old when your walker has an airbag."

— "I was the world's ugliest baby. When I was born, the doctor slapped everybody."

— "I became a stand-up comedienne because I had a sit-down husband."

— "My vanity table is a Black & Decker workbench."

— "The only thing domestic about me is I was born in this country."

— "They say housework can't kill you, but why take the chance?"

— "I have so many liver spots, I ought to come with a side of onions."

— "Think of me as a sex symbol for men who just don't give a damn."

— "The best contraceptive for old people is nudity."

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
