    It was actually from my grandmother, she said that "as a singer, I was better still".  It was funny when I finally realized what it meant.

    When ever I would ask my where we were going, my mother would always say Tim Buck Two.  I thought this was a real place when I was a child lol.

    When I was a girl I asked my mom where the hangers were.  Without batting an eye, she said, "In the toilet."  I was stunned and asked her why she said that - and she said "you asked a silly question, so I gave you a silly answer."

    Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite. If they do, pick up a shoe, and beat 'em 'till they're black and blue. Just like daddy is. Good nobbit. Good nobbit.

    When I was on the cover of a famous Hollywood trash magazine years ago that mentioned something "not so nice," I cried to my father and told him "What do I do?! How could they?! and he started to laugh. I said "what the hell is so funny?!!!!" And he said "DID THEY SPELL YOUR NAME RIGHT?! And we both started to laugh......And what he was saying was that "people forget" these silly stories and all they will remember is your "name" in the end.........

    apparently, I did not flourish in a humourous household.

    In my adult years, my sense of humor, has been branded as " dark", " wicked" and " dry".
