Maybe there's messages written on small pieces of paper in the dresses pockets?

Why do they say women can't be funny. She was hilarious. I liked Joan Rivers and her faux star-gossip shtick too. I recall one line about Liz Taylor "eating her way across Europe" and I think it came from her.

Speaking of funny women: Ellen Degeneres is like Jerry Seinfeld. She can't not be funny.

Comedy for a different era.

Do we even use the term "housewife" anymore?

Phyl could be liberated and you still liked her.

What feminism could have been and should be.

Because it retains its dignity?

I remember Louis L'Amour once describing a woman as "she would have called herself a 'housewife' and would have been proud of it".

Some ideas don't require a brain. Any "thinking" is done somewhere else.

Funny, that response reminded me of

"Gentleman, question mark!"

Diller is a doozy. She reminds me of Auntie Mame and her line, "Life's a banquet and most succors are starving to death."

Bob E, Ellen can't find my sense of humor.

Phil 3:14, when I turned 40, I was surprised to realize I found Margaret DuMont attractive.

If you just glance at the headlines over the past 10 or 20 years it seems like, for men, sex and brains are mutually exclusive. Clinton, Weiner, Edwards, Petraeus... you might ask what were they thinking?, but clearly they weren't.

Women are just not funny.
