NY Daily News Blind Item

Which legendary older funnyman has never worn the same pair of socks twice since becoming a millionaire at age 18?

Jerry Lewis. He doesn't wear the same suit twice either because he's allergic to cleaning fluid.

But I think I've read he became a millionaire at 20, not 18.

def jerry lewis, this is no secret.

jax said...

i would have liked to see funnyman in quotations.

Jerry does good things but he's always smacked of pervert to me.

Happy Monday.

Twisted Sister said...

Happy Monday backatchya, Jax.

And Cap, you're right - this is no secret. I think these columnists are getting desperate.

Hi Y'all!

I'm probably the only one who didn't know this. :0) I was trying to remember if Milton Berle was still alive or not. LOL.

Old and Recycled. Or maybe we're all (most of us) way too interested in other people's bidness. Hmmm.

Speaking of NY gossip columns that lag behind, Today's Page Six is finally mentioning Rachael Ray's attitude problem:

"WHICH daytime gabber should be nicer to her staffers?She snipes at them all day long, particularly if they bring her the coffee she endorses - she prefers Starbucks . . ."

Jolara said...

LOL, that Rachel Ray coffee fiasco was funny!

Di said...

J'adore Jerry! He needs no quotes around his funnyman.

And Jolara, you weren't the only one who didn't know about the socks and suit issue.

Sooooooo...what does he do with his old socks? Jus' wondering? That is a LOT of socks over a lifetime :P
And MC is that way about her towels, geez...!? Wonder what other funny 'item' fetishes we could dig up?

Speaking of "Old Funnyman" what the hell was Mickey Rooney ON last night? He rambled and rambled on worse than Grampa Simpson.

Kara said...

When I ramble, I've normally just passed on a joint. Maybe Mickey gets some of that medical marijuana for his glaucoma? I don't know if he has glaucoma, but I know that's an approved condition for government bud.

Mickey was embarassing as usual. Poor old fart thinks he's way more important than (I think) he is. Why did he keep saying there was a tie? What in the hell was the deal with introducing the wife? Ya, okay Mick, you've had 17 wives and one finally stuck it out. We get it already. I felt like I was watching a retirement party speech.

Why couldn't somebody like Javier Badem take up all the time talking? His speech was very good, but not long enough for me.

jax said...

lol Twist at your avatar.

Twisted Sister said...

Jax....I lmao when I thought of this for a new avatar and quickly googled coven and found it. I'm sure some of the previous whiners will be rolling their eyes, but honestly, I'm too busy to care. ;-)

I can't stand Rachel Ray.

patti_cake said...

I'm with you califblondy, and the rest who think Mickey was out there. I was embarrased for him, and think these legends should stay in the audience and we should remember them as they were. I kept thinking the same thing: what tie?? I kept waiting for him to come back and say he forgot to announce the other one.

Hmmmm....yummy....Javier! I wish he would have rambled on and on....I could just listen to him speak for hours :)

Majik said...

I can't help but think that Jerry Lewis is just some fat, old, sweaty guy. The socks are probably new daily out of necessity...ew.

lol...just saw the SNL bit with Dana Carvey as Mickey Rooney not too long ago--hysterical.

kara-
ha! a little toke here and there is GOOD for glaucoma, but officially, NOTHING is govt. approved for medical marijuana. even when the people vote for it.
which totally pisses me off. i have a couple of things that that particular treatment would help with.

i didn't watch last night. but i think mickey rooney's been losing it for awhile.

di, i'd never heard the sock thing, either.
and jax, THANK GOD! i never liked him, and pervy is the perfect word. i prefer impersonations of him, myself.
