Estelle Getty, My Favorite Punch Line

Estelle Getty has died at 84. I don't know what I'm going to do—she was my go-to punch line for all jokes elderly. I don't know, "This sweater makes me look like Doris Kearns-Goodwin" doesn't exactly pack the same punch.

So here's to you, Estelle Getty. Thanks for introducing me to the granny zinger (Rose: "I just found out I'm the most boring person on Earth." Sophia: "Did something happen to Regis Philbin?") and for being younger than Bea Arthur.
