Saturday JEOPARDY
A salute to one of my all-time favorite comediennes.....
GRACIE ALLEN, BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1895
“I was so surprised at being born that I didn’t speak for a year and a half.”
George Burns: Gracie, did the nurse ever happen to drop you on your head when you were a baby?
Gracie: Oh, no, we couldn’t afford a nurse, my mother had to do it.

George: Gracie, what day is it today?
Gracie: Well, I don’t know.
George: You can find out if you look at that paper on your desk.
Gracie: Oh, George, that doesn’t help. It’s yesterday’s paper.
