Carol Burnett had a thing she did at the close of her show; she would tug on
her ear ! This was a signal to her young daughter, Carrie, who was always
watching, that it was time to go to bed .
1. Libya
2. the Hollies
3.Redd Foxx
4. - b
5. Penicillin
6. Lorrie Morgan (Daughter of George Morgan)
7. words that sound like what they refer to

Carol Burnett got her big TV break when she was booked on the ‘Paul Winchell
Show’ in 1955.
Her grandmother (whom she called ‘Nanny’) wanted Burnett to say hello to her
on-screen. Thinking it unprofessional to do so – but not wanting to
disappoint her Nanny – She devised a secret signal: pulling on her left ear.
That meant “Hello, Nanny”.
It became her signature sign-off, which carried through to ‘The Gary Moore
Show’, ‘The Carol Burnett Show’, and virtually every TV and theatrical
appearance since.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
