Phyllis Diller

Phyllis Diller
Had a laugh that was killer.
Funky clothes and crazy hair,
A cigarette holder added flair.

For Andrea Dietrich's A New Crop of Clerihews contest.

    When I saw this name it brought a tear to my eye. I grew up with her on my t.v. she is part of my heritage.

    Didn't she have those face lifts which made headlines as well? We don't get all the gossip here, but this lady was a hoot! Congratulations on your win, Kim. Love, Su BTW I had to check why you wrote in the past tense. The lady had passed away in August of this year.
