Cheeky Betty, following the RDX diet pills ad with a comment that everybody on set has so much energy they need to burn off.

The mind (or lack of one) often works in very strange ways. I can personally attest to that. So in that vein, when I think of Betty White, my mind goes where most others do not. This was the first place it went when I heard she had passed:

It reminded me of a bit on the Stern show about 15 years ago. He was doing "Sternac", a take on Carson's Carnac The Magnificent. So Fred Norris, playing his Ed McMahon says " I hold in my hand the final answer". Stern (supposedly puts the envelope to his forehead) says "Betty White". He then opens up the envelope (you hear a rustling sound then and then a ripping noise). Stern says " What did the black man say when asked who he thought the next Pope would be".

Hey, it made me chuckle.
