I love Betty White.
Whew that feels better. But seriously people, I hope I don't need to convince you about how awesome this woman is. Come on, if you haven't seen the Muffin Skit when she hosted SNL then you are just being silly. When you see the words "My muffin hasn't had a cherry since 1939," coming out that face (see below) your life seems like just a little be more of a happy place. Just look at her:
She's 89 years old and is still going. I'm not just talking about her amazing career boom within the past few years, but her attitude in general. She's herself and unapologetic and knows how to have a good time.She's also just doesn't have a filter or a shame gland but that's fine by me:
“Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding”So I've decided, when I grow old (growing up is optional) I would want to be Betty White and teach my grandkids to have fun and be themselves and (accidentally) how to to swear.
I'm sad I can't post the video here but her SNL opening monologue is so fantastic.
The only other older, white-haired, and slightly crazy woman I love nearly as much as Betty White is Paula Deen. Heard of the Lady's Brunch Burger? Woman's a Southern, artery clogging, crazy, genius!
