French Fries are the Devil

Okay, I did think that Kanye West’s tweet, “French fries are the devil” spoofed by bless-his-heart earnest Josh Groban on Jimmy Kimmel‘s show was pretty funny.

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.

  1. Your blog is looking great. You have some writing skills. I bring in $10-$50 each blog story I put up. It is a good way to make extra money in the current economy. The business I write for has quite a few openings if you would like to try it out.

  2. I really like your transitions and quality. I have been producing for Ghost Writers for a while now, and they pay me well to write blog posts like this, or articles. I clear $100-$200 on a bad evening.
