As a kid, I always had Phyllis Diller and Lady Elaine Fairchilde confused in my head. I know one is a outrageous stand up comedian and actress, the other a puppet living in The Neighborhood of Make-Believe, but they looked so much alike. I'm not quite sure I really thought of how that would have worked, but I was convinced they were the same person. Needless to say the both scared, and fascinated me.
So I would like to thank Phyllis Diller for the hours of fear tinged laughter that she provided for me. She was one of a kind, and I must admit, that I'm going to miss the hell out of her.
By the way, one of my favorite Phyllis Diller moments can be found by watching this video.
