Who can ever forget Fang??
I loved her "outrageous" LAUGH. God bless her. RosaMaria.
Do you remember when they did a cartoon character of her on Scooby Doo?
The first joke I can remember was from Phyllis. "Fang and I were just at a costume party and I went practically in the nude. All I wore was a white fuzzy hat and white fuzzy slippers...I went as a Q-Tip.I still giggle at that joke and I must have been no more than 3 or 4 years old when I heard it on television.
My favorite was their first Thanksgiving - she didn't know how to cook and was trying to dress the turkey - in clothes. Still cracks me up.
she's a legend here in st. louis, having lived here in the 60's and performing for years in gaslight square. she often said st. louis was always home to her.
There was a lovely tribute to Phyllis by Joan Rivers in the Sunday Post:http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/joan-rivers-on-how-phyllis-diller-paved-the-way-for-women-in-comedy/2012/08/24/12e15348-ebbf-11e1-b811-09036bcb182b_story.htmlhttp://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/music/pink-martini-releases-phyllis-diller-recording-of-smile-believed-to-be-her-final-recording/2012/08/21/316780cc-ebd7-11e1-866f-60a00f604425_story.html
