Those of you who grew up north of the Donna Dixon Line may think that a scene like the one below - - where Ed, Mama and Eunice spend an evening playing the board game SORRY - - is funny because these three characters are so wildly larger than life.
Please be aware that if my Mama, my brother and I had a few beers and played a game of SORRY, this is EXACTLY how the evening would unfold.
Except in our game, someone would be wearing a halter top, gas would be passed frequently and at a crucial point in the game, my mother would pull out a knife.
And yes, I would be Eunice.
To you, it's comedy. To Southerners, this is a documentary.
And by the way, today is Carol Burnett's birthday.
Happy Birthday, Carol. (Tug on earlobe here)
