Bea Arthur

The legendary comedienne and actress Bea Arthur has passed away at the age of 86.

Stealing our hearts as Maude in the 70s and acerbic Golden Girl Dorothy in the 80s, she will be sadly missed.

Let’s remember her with one of my favourites . . . a duet with Rock Hudson and a lovely ode to recreational drugs.

RIP Bea.

And Benn, 14 points for you.


  1. Cool song. What year was that from?

    Of course what I first thought of, when I heard the news, was this:

  2. Not sure. I'm not even sure what TV show it was from.
    Late 70s I suspect.
    We might have to defer to Shannon on this one.

  3. I think its cheap to mention points at the end of the post - we should be thanking her for being a friend...
