Retro Snap: Who Is This Funny Lady?

phyllis diller RIP

Here she is 1973 with her trademark cigarette holder.

It’s Phyllis Diller, who passed away yesterday at the age of 95. Normally we’d try to find a great glamour shot, but this seems like the way the famed comedienne would like to be remembered. If you want to see some of her best quotes, please consult this gallery.  Phyllis inspired us to be funny, and, also, less importantly, today, she inspired us to try wearing pink opera gloves sometime.
