eLanka Funnies & Comedy – Words of Wisdom by Phyllis Diller



Yet another little “collection” of comedy quotes by the famous Comedienne Phyllis Diller who died on the 20th of August 2012, aged 95. Her “comedy capers” were in the same vein as that of Lucille Ball. They were both very funny ladies, on stage, of course, but provided the World with real comedic material that will always be enjoyed.

     This comes to me via Harry de Sayrah & Keith Bennett, who must be commended for trying to get our minds off all the unfortunate happenings in Sri Lanka at the moment.

Thank you, Harry & Keith.
