OH NOES ESTELLE GETTY DIED: Yeah, no “hot DC gossip” angle on this one unless you want to make yet another dumb John McCain/old people joke. Farewell, Sophia Petrillo!

She will be fondly remembered. I have never heard of this person before. Did she have anything to do with DC, even? [re=41407]jagorev[/re]: Oh my God you are YOUNG. But did McCain get her endorsement before the end came? Brimley’s next. I can feel it in my bones. I do look forward to fond remembrances of her groundbreaking work in “Stop, or My Mom Will Shoot.” She played Mom. She was 84? That means all of the other actresses who were her age are also 84. Except of course, the ones who are already dead. RIP. [re=41414]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: I doubt it, he does that diabetic testing everyday. [re=41409]Sara K. Smith[/re]: All that her Wikipedia page says is that she was on some show called “The Golden Girls”, which I have never seen. Did she at least sleep with Alan Greenspan in the ’70s? Everyone else did. Was she the one engaged to Mr. Big? (see, so far, no old McCain snarks!) [re=41409]Sara K. Smith[/re]: Young and clearly not gay. I’m sad now. Thanks Sara. [re=41428]NotUrEvryDayWEzl[/re]: I’m a young girl, so I know who she is. This is sad. [re=41423]Darehead[/re]: She was older than John McCain. Happy now? Not sure, but I think Estelle Getty is one of McCain’s grandchildren. One of the brown ones. [re=41417]El Bombastico[/re]: Don’t worry…the sequel “Stop!…or my mom will do nothing but just lie there…lifeless…” comes out next month Well, dammit it all to hell. For you, Sara K. Smith, a writer: Blanche: I have writer’s block. It’s the worst feeling in the world. Sophia: Try ten days without a bowel movement sometime. And one for me, sanantonerose, a blond: Miles Webber: Rose, I’ve never met anyone quite like you. Sophia: Check the corn field on Hee-Haw. [re=41443]mookworthjwilson[/re]: Reading that back, I am a horrible person. :( [re=41443]mookworthjwilson[/re]: TOO SOON! She was hysterical. She will be missed. McCain? Please. Pay no attention to him. The man spent 90 days on the high seas drinking grain alchohol from a goat bladder. /Sophia For the young uns: Abhorred I’m sorry but she liked teh geyz. And she was such an advocate for AIDS research when in truth, there is a cure for aids: LOTS AND LOTS OF MONEY. Boo. But I’d wager good money she’s up in heaven getting ready to take a swig of GoLightly(R), drop her granny panties, and shit all over Jesse Helms’s grave. I’m sorry, but anyone who doesn’t know of the wisdom and mighty wit of one Sophia Petrillo, aka, Estelle Gettty, should not be allowed on wonkette. Shame, shame. Estelle, you were Yoda, the Buddha, the Wise One. And the Real Funny Girl. [re=41474]sanantonerose[/re]: In McCain’s case, can we assume that it was a dead goat? [re=41676]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: Maybe, but perhaps not. I always thought it was interesting that she was actually younger than her daughter on the Golden Girls Hey, Sophia, you will never have to go back to Shady Pines again. She would still make a better president than McCranky. Comments are closed.
