But after I found out that West didn’t come up with the french fries line in the first place, I’m thinkin’ —- people, pay attention, West is over-rated! Compared to say, Lily Tomlin:
“A sobering thought: what if, at this very moment, I am living up to my potential?”
“All my life, I wanted to be somebody. Now I see I should have been more specific.”
“Delusions of grandeur make me feel a lot better about myself.”
BUT then, what did I find out through the miracle of Google and perseverance — the author of those one liners is Jane Wagner. Jane, as it turns out, is a comedy writer and screen writer who as it happens is Lily’s partner.
Jane Wagner is evidently hilarious in private. Lily Tomlin is obviously hilarious in public with Jane Wagner’s stuff.
The upshot of all this is — I’ve forgiven Kanye West for tweeting someone else’s one liner. In life I guess you need to figure out whether you are the Glass or the Water. Both jobs are pretty important.
