The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia

I did a storytelling show last night and that means I spent the entire previous evening trolling around youtube instead of working on my set.  I saw something on Kristin Chenoweth’s twitter page (don’t judge) that linked to this video of Dixie Carter as Julia Sugarbaker chewing out a beauty queen who disrespected her sister Suzanne on Designing Women.  If you are of a certain demographic, you know this clip well.  At least, you should know this clip well.  I saw Dixie Carter at Bed, Bath and Beyond once.  I wanted to offer her my extra  20% off coupon, but I was too shy.  Anyway, this is one of her finest moments. It’s an episode that always resonated with me and judging from the 30 or so youtube videos of gay guys reenacting the scene, I’m not the only one.
