Gracie Allen

We favor putting Congress on a commission basis. Pay them for results. If they do a good job and the country prospers, they get 10% of the extra take.

I often put boiling water in the freezer. Then whenever I need boiling water,I simply defrost it.

Good afternoon Paul,

All good quotes!

The commission one probably would not work as most of them think they are doing a fantastic job unless we have a review board.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Gracie was brilliant... and she made comedy look easy.  I wish she was still around!  Take care,  Kathy

Hi Paul- I agree with Kathy Schowe Gracie Allen made it look so easy. Hers was the comedy that you don't find today... it was not mean-spirited at all.

Morning Paul.

I remember watching that show.  Their one liners were classic, pity there isn't one of those still going today

Good ones, Paul. I especially liked the first one given that we are in election season.

The boiling water and roast beef ones made me laugh. Although that sure would be a waste of good meat!

Hello Paul - some of these quotes are just as relevant today as when originally told.  It only seems fitting to pair your recent post on George Burns with Gracie Allen.

Hi Paul:

How can you read about Gracie Allen and not think of George Burns, or vice versa. Such great comedians, and a wonderful couple!
