This is hilarious! Thanks for some good laughs.


In the early days of Saturday Night Live, the late, great Gilda Radner had a character in her repertoire by the name of Emily Litella. Emily was a hard-of-hearing older lady who was given to tirades about some issue she had heard about on TV and misconstrued due to her deafness. Ms. Litella would appear on the Weekend Update segment of SNL and opine about subjects ranging from violins (instead of violence) on TV, to the Supreme Court’s decision on the deaf penalty, to the endangered feces act.

My favorite Emily Litella discourse was the time she sang “I Will Follow Him” to express her undying love for Tom Snyder, a popular New York TV talk show host at the time. “I will swallow him;” she intoned while a horrified Jane Curtin stared, open-mouthed. “I will swallow him wherever he will go…I love him, I love him, I love him, and…

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.

  1. Thank you so much! You have no idea how happy it makes me that you enjoyed my latest blog entry. My objet d’être is making people laugh so your enjoyment of my latest rant means a lot. I thought your comments were hilarious too. Maybe there should be an Emily Litella Club. LOL. Thanks again!! Stay well.

  2. I think an Emily Litella, or Gilda Radner club would rock. She was the first public figure to die that I personally grieved. She added so many ongoing memories. I won’t forget.

    Here are two of her quotes: “I’m so full I can’t hear.” – Gilda Radner

    “Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.”
    ― Gilda Radner

    You have a gift. Thank you for sharing it. I love laughter & practice laughing yoga.
