Remember Andy Rooney??


Yeah, the one with the eyebrows on steroids.. uh huh..that one.

My daughter April sent this email to me - probably not thinking about me having such a momentous birthday coming up (60? Seriously? SIXTY??) Yeeeah..that one..

Anyway, I loved this. Always have gotten a kick out of 'Ol Andy...I mean, he TotALly "gets" us..

60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS)

"As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think.

If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting..

Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant.

Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well -coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress.

Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage.


Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage.."

I always liked Andy Rooney ...

Waitaminute...waitaminute...Andy Rooney's dead? Did I miss something? I love..(ed?) Andy Rooney. He was(is) the only reason I ever watch (watched) 60 Minutes. His five minutes was(is) the best thing that show had(has) to offer. I'll admit I haven't watched it in a while because I've been tired of the same ole' same ole' in the news...but...Andy Rooney's gone? Excuse me. I've got to go to the internet.

Lucy said...

Andy Rooney lives! He's 90 but he's alive. Or at least he was last Sunday.

Sweet Repose said...

Again, I laugh out loud...RIGHT ON SISTA!!! It even gets better as we approach 60 and you and I are running in a dead heat...well, maybe not running...BOOBS GONE WILD...

I always had this nagging question I wanted Andy to do a piece on...'the lone shoe', maybe it's a Midwest thing, but don't you wonder how that one shoe got on the highway...or a city street for that fact...where's the other shoe anyway?

He could have done me proud with this one...gotta love him.

Have a great weekend Sista...time for pizza, beer and a video...for the dog of course!

Hi from me and Scratch!

Andy rooney is such a hoot! I loved him.

Andy Rooney is a riot, but he didn't write this piece according to Truth or Fiction. A guy named Frank Kaiser did. Well, in that case, I really like Frank, too. ;D

I hadn't seen you in my bloglines for a few days. I wondered were you went then I noticed this ..
and wondered who it was. Did you change your name or do something different?

Lucy said...

Regarding your edited version...LOL. I had a good laugh about it all. Poor Andy. :)
