I Love Lucy and Ethel

When asked their favorite episode of I Love Lucy, most people cite the candy-making episode or the grape-stomping one or Vitameatavegamin, but for me it's "Ethel's Birthday."  I've probably seen it a hundred or a thousand times, but it still makes me laugh out loud.  Today is Lucille Ball's 100th birthday, and Vivian Vance's 102nd birthday was last week on the 26th of July:  To celebrate the births of my two favorite gal pals, here's a clip from I Love Lucy.


  1. Vitameataveganim and the candy-making episode are two of my favs. I also liked the one where she gives does another woman's hair and the curls fall out. I don't remember seeing this one, but the clip was funny - there really were genius. -T

  2. Agreed. I love so many of them that it's hard to pick a favorite (though I have). When I was a little girl, I so wanted to live their lives. I guess it still wouldn't be a bad way to go.
