Andy Rooney Praises Women Over 50
Andy Rooney Praises Women Over 50
Yes, Andy Rooney had lavish words of praise about women who are over 50 – women of a certain age. You know Andy Rooney. He is witty. He is funny. He is a combination of commentator / reviewer / philosopher. He owns a set of formidable eyebrows. He appears on the CBS television show, “60 Minutes” which airs every Sunday evening. When asked if he ever thought about retiring, he said, “What? Retire from life?” (Note: Andy passed away two months short of his 93rd birthday - Nov. 4, 2011.)
Here is some of the praise that Andy is said to have uttered concerning women of a certain age. “Certain age” has become a label for older women. “Certain” may really be a very appropriate term. It means without doubt, sure, definite – but unspecified. That describes us. We seldom have doubts, we are sure of ourselves, we are often definite – but unspecified.
"Old age isn't so bad, when you consider the alternative." - Maurice Chevalier
In case you missed this on “60 Minutes”, these are Andy’s thoughts about women over 50:

Praise from Andy
“As I grow in age, I value women over 50 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why:
“A woman over 50 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 50 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 50 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, ifthey think 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 50.
“Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 50 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.
“Older women are forthright and honest.. They will 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 50 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 50, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.”
