Godammit: RIP Phyllis Diller

Posted by on Mon, Aug 20, 2012 at 1:41 PM

She made me laugh like a jackass when I was a kid, so, of course, I kinda I fell in love with her. Her cheek defined my sense of humor...RIP Ms. Phyllis Diller.

Also: I had no idea she recorded a comedy album of songs, Born to Sing. It's mostly showtunes, however it does include an uncomfortable stab at the Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction."

She was a kick in the pants.

She may have been a great comedian, but I'll always remember her as the giant demon poodle from that disturbing horror movie of my childhood, "Bone Yard."

I actually own this recording. It's on the "Golden Throats" compilations of celebrities recording covers of pop songs, right there next to Shatner, Nimoy and Sammy Davis, Jr.
