Emily Litella was a fictional character played by comedian Gilda Radner in a series of appearances on Saturday Night Live (SNL).
When I hear one of Tom Brokaw’s ‘American Story’ segments on the radio he reminds me of Emily Litella.
I think I need to stop being annoyed by local news stories. Or stop watching local news. I am slowly becoming Emily Litella.
Clown shortage threatens the nation. "It's all that talk about clown computing," says Emily Litella
(Emily Litella was an early SNL character with a hearing impediment.)
"What's all this talk about minimum rage? Aren't people angry enough as it is? Why set a requirement?"--Emily Litella
A lot of Emily Litella material in today's Letters to the Editor inbox. . >>Violins on Television:
Some times my cube neighbor sounds like Gilda Radner as Emily Litella.
I am there in spirit darlin'- I join all event that I support so it shows up on my page and gets lots of exposure. Perhaps I'll try to astral project. No. Wait. This isn't the '60s anymore. Never mind! – Emily Litella
I love C-SPAN. I am watching a program about mental health parity and I imagine an entire SNL Gilda Radner aka Emily Litella Weekend Update PSA about the evils of mental health parodies. Sorry young people, you have to be of a certain age to get that.
The response from the left about the non-story about voting for Reagan. reminds me of this SNL classic:
Actually, new to me too. My brain must have autocompleted/filled in the missing "-gles"… I sometimes have Emily Litella moments.
writer doesn't know difference between Time Warner Cable and Time Warner Inc.-a modern day Emily Litella via
I'm like Emily Litella, I can't understand all the fuss about endangered feces.
As Emily Litella would have said (check out the old SNL shows with Gilda Radner): "never mind."
Every time I hear the words "half pipe," I think about what an awesome sketch Emily Litella could have done about hash pipes.
Is it just me or are Amazon's book reviews mildly insane? "MIDDLEMARCH: This book was terrible! I read all the way to the middle and nobody marched at all!" There's a pattern of expecting the title to literally manifest, or the cover photo to be reproduced in prose ("There was no woman in a backless dress looking at a distant lighthouse anywhere in this book! Thanks but no thanks!") that suggests the descendants of Emily Litella are their content providers.
What the average viewer hears: "The 22nd Winter Olympics." What my very funny wife and best editor hears: "The 20-second Olympic Winter Games." Then we break down at the vision of Emily Litella on the old Saturday Night Live doing her confused editorial about why the Olympic events are so short, and we say, in unison, "Never mind." We crack each other up.
in a highly unusual and rare admission, NBC excutives have conceded that the past 22 years of their late night programming during the 11:35 -12:35 slot was all a dream - this according to Peacock network veteran - Emily Litella. effective Monday, Feb. 17, Jimmy Fallon will succeed Johnny Carson as host of the Tonight Show ...
What is all this talk about Sushi? Everywhere I turn it is Sushi this or Sushi that. It has been around for years and now everyone acts like it is the 'new' thing. Why is Sushi security so important? It is just raw fish. I mean really why.What? What is that? It is 'Sochi' not 'Sushi'? Oh, that's very different.Never Mind! (If you are under 45 or did so many drugs in the 70's that you can't remember the original cast of SNL you should Google Gilda Radner (Emily Litella). This post will make more sense. R.I.P. Gilda.)
As Emily Litella would say, "America The Beautiful is NOT our national anthem???.Never mind."
"What's all this talk about a Ham on Nye sandwich?" Emily Litella
Emily Litella was a fictional character played by comedianGilda Radner in a series of appearances on Saturday Night Live. Based on a person in her early life, Emily Litella was a popular character in Radner's comedy repertoire.
I stole this from the folks at Guitars Not Guns, a group dedicated to helping kids gain music skills (guitar in particular) in a low teacher-student ratio with the broader noble goal not of opposing guns, but of opposing gun violence. And "like" this if you remember the Gilda Radner "Emily Litella" character on SNL.
So Stephen Harper wrote a book about hockey, big deal. Preston Manning is playing in the Superbowl! - from the Emily Litella file.
New book idea: "Summa Dis, Summa Dat" A collection of History...my way, Dad says, Emily Litella and Rodney tributes, humorous (hopefully) poetry and short fiction pieces. Back cover will be faux quotes by famous dead people.
Another sign I need new glasses: I just saw an add that mentioned Christina Aguilera, but I thought it read Christian Algebra. I thought, "Yep, I did a LOT of praying when I took algebra." As Emily Litella once said, "Oh, that's quite different. Never mind."
For several days now I have been warning you about the lackluster speech Obama was going to deliver tonight. I got five EMAILS from the White House...one each from Obama and his wife, and three from his staffers ALL asking me to click the box saying I would watch. I haven't missed a SOTU address since 7th grade! This was sad more than distasteful. Obama is done. The bag of tricks is empty. There is no vigor in his delivery of a speech he doesn't believe himself. IF Boehner and the boys on the hill were actually trying to break him, they have succeeded. I maintain he imploded on himself because his policies and his ideas were not mainstream enough to gain traction. He thought we hated our lives under George W and Clinton and he set about a plan to win america over to his race baiting, christian hating, pot smoking nanny state. It was effective in places, but with approval ratings well under 40% he should have said what I said he should say and simply apologize for being too progressive for gun loving Jesus ...
Why wouldn't postage stamps go up on the first of the month? Wouldn't that make it easier for everyone to remember? Of course, this post is based on the supposition that there are tons of people who care, which of course if there were would mean the post office wouldn't be in the dire straits they are in, so perhaps a great big Emily Litella never mind" is in order.
I just had a total Emily Litella moment: Listening to the news about Justin Beiber's arrest, I thought the commentator said "People are now wearing 'FREE BEAVER" t-shirts. I snickered like a 13-year-old. I should go back to work and lay off the white-out.
FRUSTRATION!! Cannot access my favorite clips of SNL which include, besides the ones below, Church Chat with Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, Coffee Talk with Madonna/Roseanne/Barbra Streisand, Daily Affirmation with Michael Jordan, Gilda/Emily Litella on "Violence", Chris Farley and Patrick Swayzee audition for the Chippendales, Justin Timberlake in the leotard dancing to Beyonce's--put a ring on it, and countless other oldies but goodies not mentioned...THOSE are my favorites!!
If homeless people have sex, then won't they multiply and full all of those empty houses?...what? What was that? Oh.nevermind. - Emily Litella.
Mr. Shawn This technology is scary, I'm awed that in less than five minutes (i'm a slow keyboarder, what a term, didn't exist when I first saw Shawn) I tracked you down. My last memory from an album cover was that he was living in Italy so I started with International People Search.. "Never-mind" to quote Emily Litella from SNL circa 1975, I gottcha! I am now 57 and recently found and played and replayed and replayed, and it's on now ( after repairing the cassette player from salvaged units..you can't get many key parts any more) a tape I made off my sisters albums. When I first played it, I cried and I laughed..out loud, alone. I also sang along and didn't hardly miss a word, maybe a note or two, I can't cover three octaves! I had forgotten just how important and formative your poetry was to me. The incredible guitar and orchestration gave me chills again, still. What's happnin' Jim?, Hey Miss Lonely, Only Logical Conclusion and so forth. WOW and THANK YOU! "Armed with the thought of being God"...you' .. ...
This would have been a great topic for Emily Litella, but ... never mind!
And a belated shout-out to SNL's noted scientist Emily Litella ("What's all this fuss I keep hearing about endangered feces?")
this could be from Emily Litella (Gilda Radner) or Anthony Crispino (Bobby Moynihan): "What's this I hear about Kevin Kline? He's going be an assistant football coach at UH." As Emily would say: "Never mind." As Anthony would say: "Yeah, yeah, Seth, that's what I heard"
Channeling Miss Emily Litella into FB comments. Not sure why...
I got the Letter "E" from Judy Wedemeyer - like this post if you wanna play and share your answers! I'll send you a letter of your own! Something I hate: Exercise! Something I love: Evenings with my husband Somewhere I have been: Evansville, IN! Somewhere I would like to go: England Someone I know: Emily Litella (from SNL!) Best movie: E.T. With Judy Wedemeyer
I was in the main library this afternoon reading my "free" copy of the Arlington Advocate and came across these headlines in the December 26th, 2013, edition: (1) "AHS girls starting to heat up” (2) "Spy Ponders defeated by Cougars in thriller" Why didn’t AHS girls “heat up” when I stalked those hallowed halls in the early Sixties? And when did “Cougars” start invading our little community to “thrill” and “defeat” our stalwart young men playing ball in their underwear? I thought public “bussing” of our school kids was inappropriate, especially after Town Meeting passed a Resolution against physical abuse of our children. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I think this town is getting way too “Trendy” for this Boomer. Oh, wait… That was the Sports page? In the immortal words of Emily Litella, “Never mind…”
Channeling Emily Litella. "What's all this biz about colder than a witches kitty?"
So, I'm standing in Food Lion, looking at my bride's grocery list, and ask myself, "What the *** is local hot chocolate?" I work up a pretty good steam, fretting, "No one around here makes hot chocolate. Why does she care? Even if someone did, Food Lion wouldn't carry it!" Then I have my Emily Litella moment. "Oh, she wants lo cal hot chocolate. Never mind."
Last night I wish I could have found a sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever so I could rest medicine ... But all I found was Nigh Quill...how is having a revolutionary writing instrument near me going to make me feel better?? Oh wait, did I misread that...it's NyQuil you say? Ah, never mind. (Said a la Emily Litella from 1970's SNL).
I keep hearing 4G-LTE network in advertising and my mind keeps hearing the voice of Emily Litella saying, "What's all this fuss I keep hearing about 4G-LGBT Networks?" I miss you Gilda.
English is such a goofy language. No wonder we have such a hard time communicating and understanding each other. We have these words that sound alike but mean different things. I was reading something on the computer when a commercial comes on I'm half listening to. Trojan Bare Skin condoms. And my first thought was bear skin what? How many condoms can you get out of one bear skin? Then I looked at the TV and read what they were selling. Like Emily Litella, "Oh, never mind."
Attention: Now that both Forbes and the Washington Post have cited my work as a reliable source for hard ACA (Obamacare) enrollment data, I'm bracing for a possible onslaught of right-wing character attacks. If this happens, my family & friends may be caught in the crossfire. Prepare to be accused of associating with George Soros' Illegitimate Son or Nancy Pelosi's Cabana Boy, or whatever other nonsense they come up with. If I'm wrong and nothing happens, then in the words of Emily Litella..."never mind..." EDIT: OK, add New York Magazine to the list (text link only: "An estimated 1.82 million people have enrolled in private insurance since Obamacare's debut." with a link to the site):
Miss Emily Litella: "What's all this I hear about super Nova's? I had a Nova back in the day and it was a lemon of a car. I was just .what? Nova in space? Never mind."
Last night I dreamt about Gilda Radner. I don't remember much of the dream. I think I fell down and when I looked up, there was Emily Litella staring down at me asking me if I was all right. You bet I was all right. I said I was and she said, "Never mind," and went away. But if Gilda Radner is showing up in my dreams, I can't ask for better.
So if you have bought our record and you like it, please consider giving us a review on iTunes, CDBaby or amazon! If, on the other hand, you didn't like our record...well, in the words of Emily Litella..."never mind"
I wish Gilda Radner were still with us just so I could hear Emily Litella’s take on *** Dynasty. .
Oh. Like Emily Litella used to say, Never mind.
That Emily Litella reference likely went over the head of a significant portion of your followers. Not me, though. Clearly. :-)
Tech stuff + me = think I'll go make a cup of tea now. Just tried to upload some photos to Flickr, complete with new names, descriptions, tags, sets, groups...and the download failed. What was it Emily Litella used to say? "Never mind."
I am tired of everyone blaming the university of Minnesota for everything. Signed Emily litella.
It would be awesome if, when classes are posted, the name and a brief bio of the instructor (or some other explanation as to why people should give that person cash to teach them about _ ), were also provided. Or maybe I'm the only one who cares? In which case, in the immortal words of Emily Litella, "Nevermind!" :-)
Now I'm picturing this as an Emily Litella sketch.
Exactly. They just stopped and it was like an Emily Litella "never mind..." Hated to be left hanging like that!
Violins Day. Makes me think of Emily Litella on SNL who was speaking out against Violins in America until Jane Curtain pointed out that it wasn't violence in America but violins in America. Oh that's different . Nevermind.
Emily Litella's not shy about her opinions when it comes to violins on television. Find more Saturday Night Live videos on Yahoo Screen.
"What's all this fuss I hear about The Hour of Cold?". — Emily Litella 2013
It's National Ice Cream and Violins Day. It must be real because I read about it online. I've done a little research and it looks like somewhere around 2006 the second National Ice Cream Day and Violins on Television Day got combined into the current melange day. Someone copied it and it just multiplied until it became a "real" day. It's a strange time of year for an ice cream day, the more popular choice is the one in July. Several national chains give out free ice cream on that day. The original Violins on Television Day was created to honor the late Gilda Radner. If you're too young to remember Gilda Google "Emily Litella." In Scandinavia it's St Lucia Day, when girls in white dresses walk around in flaming crowns. Not the best choice for Friday the 13th. Keep that fire extinguisher handy. For the rest of Christendom it's the Feast Day of Saint Odilia of Alsace the patron saint of filicide. On this day in history in 1577 Drake set out to sail around the world, in 1636 the US National Guard was founded, ...
Why are you becoming Emily Litella in your dotage?
Eeven though I'm a winter aficionado, I don't have it in me tonight to walk the dogs, although it could be much, much colder than 16 degrees and I shouldn't be such a -- well, you know. Nights like tonight make me just a wee bit sorry I didn't have children so ... wait, what? Teenagers DON'T walk dogs in single-digit weather? How about washing windows on command? Or mopping floors? Changing the oil in the Saturn? Going out to buy me a bottle of wine at the liquor store? What??? Oh, I need a PERSONAL ASSISTANT. As Emily Litella would say, never mind. :)
ND basketball team wins, yay! Oh, it was North Dakota? Never mind. (Apologies to Emily Litella, Ft. Lee, NJ)
Reminds of the Gilda Radner character from SNL, I think it was Emily Litella (spelling may be off)
"Canine cognition? Now who can afford to send their dogs to college?" - Emily Litella
The myth dies hard. Finding a better job via more education and ambition is a comical notion these days. In today's economy and today's society, the difference between flipping burgers and something much better is a matter of luck. Lucky timing, lucky coincidences on your resume, and luck with regard to how pretty you are. But wait a minute... That's ALWAYS been the case. "Nevermind,' says Emily Litella, from SNL.
8 Nights of Hannukah by Emily Litella On the first night of Hannukah, I was waiting for grace. (Some wait for a birth under a tree; I guess their health insurance was cut off. No such bucolic jux
What's all the buzz about Lame Sex Marriage? ! All these people announcing their support, votes in different states...for what? Sex after you marry becomes Lame anyway! - Weekend Update, Emily Litella-in spirit.
Just spent about 30 seconds trying to parse the following line in the forecast on wunderground.com: "A manly sunny sky." I was really working to envision a manly sky of ANY kind, and then I realised it said "mainly." As Emily Litella would say, "Oh, that's different...never mind."
I'm having an Emily Litella moment. Shark needs to come up with a different name for their product. Who wants to clean with shark seamen? That doesn't sound very sanitary.
Sometimes I wonder if I am becoming like Emily Litella... This morning on the news I thought I heard that the toy report with the list of intentionally dangerous toys had been released, and wondered how manufacturers could get away with trying to intentionally endanger children, when it dawned on me that they may have said potentially dangerous toys. Nevermind.
Emily Litella called and wants to know what's all this fuss about the Net and Yahoo in Israel? Are they different there? What? What?! oh, never mind...
Ha. My senator (Mark Udall) is having a fundraiser in which you can win a chance to spend some time with Robert Redford. Anyone who knows me knows that he is my all-time favorite, I've had a crush on him for about 30 years. So when I got the email, I misread it as "do you want a chance to make out with Robert Redford? If so, donate here. I practically broke my fingers trying to donate. Till I reread the email. Do you want to have a chance to HANG out with Robert Redford. Oh. (say in your best Emily Litella voice) that's very different. Nevermind.
...THEN the muffler fell off the tractor. I also noticed the exhaust manifold is cracked. As 'Emily Litella' used to say, "If it's not one thing it's another." At least this time I can USE the tractor while I wait for parts to fix it.
I heard they were going to stop teaching curse words in schools. I hope that kids will be able to still figure out how to write curse words without the aid of the school system. (Nod to Emily Litella)
I really don't know what all the fuss is about. Everyone's talking about the Python reunion this and the Python reunion that. Who cares, I say! Python is so yesterday; I've moved on to Scala. Good riddance to Python and its meaningful white-space indentation stuff. I mean, back in the day, we did that white-space thing with FORTRAN. A C in column one for comments, columns 2-5 blank or line numbers. Column 6 blank except for continuations. Horrible! It was a mistake and we moved on. Then Python starts the white-space thing all over again. A Python reunion? Good place to go and give them all a solid smack on the head, that's what I say! -- Emily Litella, Programmer
The late, great, Emily Litella came to me in a dream last night. She asked me what all the fuss was about the Affordable Chair Act. I told her I didn't know either.
I'm in the shower this morning and my husband comes in and says, "Dennis t-boned your car." I'm hoping it's an Emily Litella moment and what he really said was, "the dentist has a t-bone in his ear." Unfortunately, I heard it right the first time!
I'm tired of hearing how the 85% of people who have health insurance through their corporations aren't effected by the current state of the Affordable Care Act. My premium went up 25% from last year...a MASSIVE increase from previous years.and this is the "waiver" year. And now, the governmental "fix" for the system is to basically ignore the law - - the law we were told "to deal with". Where is Emily Litella when you need her?
Happiness is a coworker who has a killer impression of Gilda Radnor's Emily Litella.
The health insurance industry has spent the past three years understanding Obamacare and arranging their business plans based on that law. Premiums, actuarial assumptions, demographics, policies . . . all of it based on the law passed by Congress and upheld by the Supreme Court. Today again comes President Emily Litella who announces with 6 weeks left in the year, "never mind." And the insurance industry is expected to just - poof! - change everything back. Next, I can hardly wait for health insurers to become the new villains in this monstrosity.
Love Anthony Crispino - was Emily Litella the basis of that character or something from your improv days pre-SNL?
Sorry, mixed up my threads. As Emily Litella used to say, “Never mind!”
Wasn't there an SNL Emily Litella bit about "Veterinarian's Day." No? You sure? Never mind.
Mary Landrieu should call her bill to re-grandfather canceled insurance plans the "Emily Litella Bill."
Ah,the first appearance of Emily Litella, not on Update but on Looks at Books
"What's all this I hear about Republicans being anti-Climax-Science?" -- Emily Litella
Any Rosanne Rosannadanna . . . it's always SOMETHING . . . or Emily Litella . . . Never mind.
What's all this I hear about GOOGLE GRASS ?? Miss Emily Litella
Somebody call Child Protective Services... Someone should have helped hold the baby or helped make the Slurpee. They should call the police! Wait... I think it is the little girl's doll. In the words of the great Emily Litella - "Never mind."
For anybody who saw my link to the Hallmark ornament controversy before I deleted it, please just hear Emily Litella saying, "Never mind."
Ah... Fond memories of Emily Litella along with the good laugh. :-) (Young ones, Google it if you aren't old enough to remember...)
"What's all the fuss I hear about pouring money into canker research? How much can you learn about a tiny sore inside your face! Why waste your money America? Cankers can be beaten. Don't eat grapefruit. And if you do have cankers, don't fiddle with them. Keep your fingers out of your mouth." Emily Litella
Oh, maybe it's because of my 35th reunion, but I miss the Seventies. Emily Litella (Gilda Radner) "What's all this talk I hear about Endangered Feces? Why I don't know why you would save such a thing in the first place!" That's endangered species, Emily. "Oh, that's different. Never mind."
"What's all this talk about secessionism?"- Emily Litella
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006 As Emily Litella would say, "Oh, nevermind!"
I was just about to post the question "Who are these Cowboys?!" and then Romo threw an INT.in the words of Emily Litella, "Never mind"
I can totally picture Gilda Radner's character Emily Litella going off on how lawnmakers should have nothing to do with govern…
You know what? Just because I want to hear Emily Litella does not mean I'm a scumbag who wants to hurt other human beings or who would think it's funny if other people do. I just think Gilda Radner is funny; and, since she was on Saturday Nigh Live for years, as well as in comedy films and she made records and did stand up acts, apparently, I am not the only person to ever think so. Anyone who thinks that me wanting to hear her get things a little wrong and go off on a tangent means I would hurt someone else on purpose can just so bite me. I'm very hurt myself, by anyone thinking I am that person. I'm going back to bed.
If Emily Litella were alive today, she'd probably say "What's all this fuss about OSAMAcare? I don't see how getting tossed into the ocean in a lead coffin qualifies as great medical care! What?...It's not OSAMAcare?...It's OBAMAcare? Everyone gets affordable medical coverage?...Well, that's completely different. Never mind."
Having SNL flashbacks... imagining Gilda Radner doing Emily Litella... "what's all this about reptile disfunction?"
Just watched the opening gala of the B's, no banners? Oh wait, I saw that the other night in The Windy City. In the words of Emily Litella, aka the great Gilda Radner, never mind!
Emily Litella complained about the supposed obscene object floating in our local rivers, then realized that it was a 40 foot Rubber Duck. Never mind.

In th timeless words of Emily Litella, Never mind-- just had to wait 4 you to put up the correct spelling of BOTH her names!
The penultimate sentence is hilarious. Emily Litella lives.
.. For the record, "never mind" were the words of Emily Litella not Roseanne Roseannadanna. My 2 cents ;)
Anyone remember Emily Litella? Gilda Radner? SNL original cast? O.K., if ya do, listening to the radio, I heard a commercial about a benefit for wounded warriors. For some reason, I thought of Emily hearing "wounded lawyers." Imagine her rant about that...and then that look: What? Oh, never mind...
How much more interesting life can be when you start hearing things the way Emily Litella did- Brandon was going to the store for tonic water and Don heard 'pond scum'- yum, yum
Forgive me, I read this headline *Women on the Front Lines of Turkey Protests* and thought of Emily Litella.
Emily Litella from the grave, for sure. I kept waiting for the "nevermind" that never happened.

Now hearing that Port Rupert fire may just be a building fire. To quote Emily Litella, "never mind".
Funny Emily Litella moment at city council meeting.
These riots in Turkey make me wish that Emily Litella (aka Gilda Radner) was still alive. (What's all this about rioting turkeys.)
Emily Litella, if you don’t recall, was Gilda Radner’s wonderful Saturday Night Live character who ended all her wonky, off-kilter diatribes by saying — when corrected — “Never mind.”
.Oh. In the word of Emily Litella, never mind.
Don't you miss Emily Litella? She'd be all, like, "What's all this I hear about a couple of chickens bombing the Boston Marathon?"
Thank you for info. I would have gone all Emily Litella on this story. You saved me from

Oh well, as Emily Litella used to say: "Nevermind."
What's all this talk about the St Louis Cardinals holding a conclave in Rome? Shouldn't they be playing Spring Training Baseball? Oh, wait. That's the other cardinals. Never mind. For Gilda Radner/Emily Litella. Miss you.
I scare myself. Working on my book project, and suddenly, my disc drive is gone. Poof. Panic. Scramble, Nothing, Panic, Reboot, Panic. I have stuff backed up, but panic nonetheless. Check the plug in back of the drive. Good. Panic more. I hooked up another drive the other day, maybe conflict? 86 new drive. Still Phfft. PANIC. Collect head, institute rational thought. Checked connection at COMPUTER side. FireWire cord came half out when installed new drive the other day. Plugged it back in all the way, errant drive remounted. Emily Litella time.
Emily Litella's not shy about her opinions.
This sounds like Gilda Radner doing Emily Litella. Jane Curtain would explain in the most caustic way she could muster. Emily would say, "Well, thats very different. Nevermind."
In the words of SNL's Emily Litella... "Never mind..."
Looks like Emily Litella is alive and well, '. never mind". Thank you Gilda Radner.
I know I've told you before but I so so love your avatar. Emily Litella always makes me laugh.

Headline today recalls Emily Litella: What's this I hear about a steroid headed for Earth? Don't we have enough PED sports scandals?
Ookay, so I just checked the current forecast and, despite my attempt at "humor" in my previous post, I now echo the words of the late, great Gilda Radner as Emily Litella when I say: "Never Mind!". It does look like we're in for some nasty conditions. PLEASE, PLEASE be safe out there. And to all a good night!
Where is Emily Litella when you need her? (Nevermind...)
Wishing Gilda Radner were around so Emily Litella could wonder why all the talk about the NRA -- The National Raffle Association.
Gilda Radner’s Dream Gilda Radner is best known as an original cast member of Saturday Night Live. As one of the “Not Ready for Prime Time Players” she created lovable characters like Rosanne Rosannadanna, Emily Litella and Lisa Loopner. Gilda’s astonishing career was cut short when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1986. Joanna Bull, Gilda’s cancer psychotherapist, introduced her to cancer support groups. Recognizing how integral the support experience was to her treatment, Gilda’s dream was to develop a community where anyone with cancer would receive the kind of support she had found. In her best-selling book It’s Always Something, Gilda wrote about her experience living with cancer. She spoke of establishing such a support community in New York when she felt better and said, “There should be a thousand of them.” Gilda’s ovarian cancer was diagnosed too late for effective treatment and she died in 1989. Following her death, Gilda’s husband, actor and comedian Gene Wilder, J ...
oops "“Why is God on the outside of our schools having to look in when he’s always been inside of it?” Whaley...
Typography of the day. Exploring the Ample Hills Creamery website, I misread the ingredients of one flavor as "Mulled apple cider sorbet sweetened with maple syrup, spiced with cinnamon, ginger and doves." My eyesight is for the birds.
At least Emily Litella was deaf: what's these folks' excuse?
Great post Cindy. It clarifies that kids can pray in schools if they rant too.
I just read the Rachel Maddow blog and it had a story about a group of protestors from a church in North Carolina who marched to the school board's offices because they wanted kid to have the right to pray voluntarily in school, only to be told that students CAN pray voluntarily. They just can't be LED in prayers. Hearing that, they realized it was a case of simple misunderstanding. The blog likened it to Gilda Radner's SNL character Miss Emily Litella and linked to one of the skits where she was complaining about the lack of violins on television. I watched the skit and it definitely made me remember why I'd loved Gilda so much. We need someone like her again in today's world.
Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general in the military. This is a snot-nose twerp who has never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership: he hasn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team or commanded a military platoon. So guess what---next they make him the "beloved leader" of North Korea. Oh, crap! I'm sorry. I just remembered that we did the same thing here in the USA. We took an arrogant community organizer who has never worn a uniform and made him Commander-in-Chief; a guy who has never had a real job, worked on a budget or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and made him the leader of the USA. I'm sorry I brought this up. Never mind. FPV U S M C
Seems a few people think I make mountains out of molehills on the issue of this creeping Dominionism. Maybe instead of letting the majority of it slide, I should start posting all the instances of it that come across my feed and flooding your walls with the examples I see of it pretty much daily. Would that help change minds? Probably not, but denying it's happening wouldn't be quite so easy.
You know those sweat balls.Lol miss this funny chick on snl
Hey, lots of bad shots hit today, but ... as Emily Litella used to tell us on Saturday Night Live, "Never mind!"
Heroic Christian activists rally to demand a right they already have:
We got into this business because we love bikes, so we understand how important it is to have the right bike for the lifestyle we live. Buying a used bike can be a little nerve-wracking. You aren’t sure of what you are getting, and you certainly don’t want to get stuck with a previous owner’s proble...
I was just thinking, Emily Litella probably could've done a good editorial on SNL about Al Jarreau taking over Current TV.
Students can already pray in school, as long as they do so voluntarily and on their own time. There’s a one-minute...
The Supreme Court never banned all prayer from public schools, a fact that escaped one N.C. church.
Oh, wait! Kids are allowed to pray in school? Forget we said anything.
NHL media: please practice your best Emily Litella, just in case.
Tax Guru, Emily Litella says, "Hire Tex? Just who is Tex? Oh, never mind." Blog post on fiscal cliff tax law changes.
Cannot believe how many people call this the physical cliff | Emily Litella Lives! LOL ;>
"What's all this talk about the Physical Cliff"-Emily Litella.
Why do our DC "betters" insist on acting like they're playing the big top for PT Barnum? This is "serious" like Emily Litella was serious
I wish Gilda Radner were still with us. I would love to hear Emily Litella's rant about *** Burgers Syndrome.
Someone is channeling Gilda Radner's "Emily Litella" character from SNL 30 years ago!
Emily Litella wants to know what all the fuss is about Cider Monday.
(my Mom and Kevin Francis Finn may be the only ones to fully appreciate this) Emily Litella: "Whats all this about Haim Saban on television?" Jane Curtain: "Emily, thats NICK Saban." Emily Litella: "Oh, nevermind."
In the words of Emily Litella (you're young enough, you might have to google it) "That's different."
SNL's Emily Litella: "What's this I hear about a physical cliff?"
I don't understand all this fuss about dimpled chads. (said in best Emily Litella voice)
It's official-- John McCain has become "Miss Emily Litella," Gilda Radner's character from the old Saturday Night Live skits.
Emily Litella wants to know what's all the fuss over bats with babies?
I corrected myself, but thought about doing it wrong on purpose. success = Emily Litella || fail = troll. Format issues
Emily Litella wonders why the Gazan people allow themselves to be led by Lamas. No on knows if she means Tibetan priests or Fernando.
Today's Emily Litella moment: Seeing a headline that Angus King will caucus with the Democrats. I'm thinking, "Who cares if the guitarist from AC/DC is a Democrat?" Oops. That would be Angus Young. Never mind.
Do y'all remember, Gilda Radner's character on SNL's Weekly Update, Emily Litella? She was the little old lady who was the hard of hearing Editorial Correspondent that appeared with Chevy Chase and Jane Curtain. LOL...she would call Chevy Chase."Cheddar Cheese." Anyway, do you remember this funny episode? Emily Litella: What’s all this fuss I’ve been hearing about the 1976 presidential erection? Now, I know they erected a monument for Mr. Lincoln and President Washington, but that’s because they’re DEAD! Hopefully, the 1976 President won’t be DEAD! So he won’t NEED an erection! If Americans are going to spend money to erect anything, why don’t we tear down those nasty slums and erect luxury high rises for poor people and senior citizens! Not for presidents who can afford to pay for their OWN erections! Chevy Chase: Miss Litella -- Emily Litella: I can’t believe the way things are turning out in this country -- what? Chevy Chase: I'm sorry. That’s election. The editorial was about the ...
Gilda Radner SNL but I had character wrong, not Roseanne Roseannadanna, it was Emily Litella sample:
Need a last minute costume for today? How about Emily Litella -- homage to Gilda Radner :) Happy Halloween to...
wait, Emily Litella is out? (FYI, she was an old SNL character portrayed by the late Gilda Radner)
Willard Mitt Romney is suffering from the Emily Litella Syndrome. Just like the Gilda Radnor character she created on SNL who would come on at the end of Weekend Update with an editorial on something like "Violins on television" as an issue and when she was corrected that the issue was "Violence on television" not "Violins on television Emily Litella would deliver the now famous line "Never Mind" Willard Mitt Romney is now saying "Never Mind" to all his previous statements on foreign policy. Understand ELS is a fatal disease.
Whoops, just saw that that the big box ban didn't get enough votes. Never mind. *Emily Litella*
Ha. I read that too fast and thought you said Marilyn Monroe and was, naturally, puzzled. An Emily Litella moment.
Watching Mitt Romney last night in the final presidential debate was like watching the Gilda Radner's character, Emily Litella. After saying lots of crazy things, poor Emily tries to wipe out all the craziness, finally, by whining . . . 'Never mind...'
Rmoney channeling SNL characters,1st Lovitz that's the ticket to Prez then Emily Litella's Never Mind on past statements
And, having offered his best imitation of Emily Litella, Brian closes with "never mind..."
Where is Emily Litella when you need her?
gotcha. In the words of Emily Litella "never mind" lol!
"The media" keeps yakking about polls closing,I'm waiting 4 Emily Litella's "never mind" or Ashton Kutcher's "you're punked"
The North Dakota deer lady rant about the deer crossing signs; an Emily Litella moment, don't you think? How funny is that!
"What's all this fuss about youth in Asia?!" ~ MISS Emily Litella
What's all this fuss I hear about Google earrings? - Emily Litella (in spirit)
So regarding last week's news of 7.8% unemployment we reference Emily Litella - never mind.
We need Miss Emily Litella asking "What is all this I hear about Presidential Erections".
Not even Gilda Radner's Emily Litella could have found a more bizarre point in last night's debate.
Emily Litella: what's all this talk I hear about blinders for women? Women shouldn't be treated like horses! Why should they have to wear blinders? Outrageous!
"Why are the Dems talking about dishes and binders? Why don't they talk about Obama's record? Oh. Never mind." -Emily Litella
Emily Litella believes Romney was talking about binding women's feet.
It's rare for both sides of an issue to take the same position.
What's all this fuss about binding women in mittens?! Mittens are warm & comfy WHAT?!... Oh NEVERMIND - Emily Litella
I wish Gilda Radner were around to do a Emily Litella sketch objecting to Romney's run for president due to the fact that he is a merman.
Romney wants to put women in a blender?!! What? Oh. Never mind. - Emily Litella
"I'm waiting for Mr. Richard Fader of Ft. Lee, NJ to ask a question. What about Emily Litella?
Deer crossing signs exists in semi-rural areas to let drivers know to watch out for deer on the road. But Donna, who called in to a radio station in Fargo,
heh...I can see Emily Litella saying that on SNL, if Gilda were still alive.
Some of Emily Litella’s best: Saving Soviet jewelry, endangered feces, violins on television, busting schoolchildren, flea elections, pouring money into canker research, conserving our natural racehorses, youth in Asia, sax on television, firing the handicapped, making Puerto Rico a steak, Eagle Rights Amendment, and of course, who doesn't remember… Presidential erections.
Pudwill Berry Farm, why do you suck?: Actually, that was Emily Litella. Just ask Cheddar Cheese.
Gilda’s Club New York City was named for Gilda Radner, the brilliant comedian and one of the original cast members of Saturday Night Live. For years, she made us laugh with memorable characters like Baba Wawa, Emily Litella and Roseanne Roseannadanna. Gilda was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1...
Unimportantant fact all of my life I thought the lyrics (in Groovin') were, " Life will be ecstasy, you and me and LESLEY." Shocker.you and me END-LESS-LY. "Oh," said Emily Litella, "that's very different. Never mind."
Gilda Radner as Emily Litella is probably one of my favourite SNL characters. Always funny when she calls Chase 'Cheddar Cheese'.
Does everyone remember Emily Litella played by Gilda Radner of course, when she rumbled on about Violins on television, or discoursed about the president wanting to make Puerto Rico a steak, then went on and on till someone corrected her and she would finish up with "never mind"?doesn't that sound allot like Mitt?
Isn't this the same guy who told us not to go to Vegas & celebrate while the eco. . . .in the words of the immortal Gilda Radner (as Emily Litella): "never mind."
You made me think of Gilda Radner as Emily Litella on SNL.
Emily Litella: I'm here tonight to speak out against busting schoolchildren. Busting schoolchildren is a terrible, terrible thing. I hear this is going on all over the country. Mean policemen arrest little children and put them in jail in the wrong neighborhood, so they can't even play with their little friends. Imagine, busting schoolchildren! The food in jail isn't good, and even though they get bread, I don't believe they can get toast. Or nice cake. Now, who will tuck them in? Where will they hang their leggings? Where will they set up their little lemonade stands? Well, they don't have toys in jail, except maybe.. Chevy Chase: [ interrupting ] Miss Litella? Emily Litella: Yes? Chevy Chase: I'm sorry. The editorial was on bussing schoolchildren. Bussing. Not busting. Emily Litella: Oh. I'm sorry. Never mind.
remember Gilda Radner's Emily Litella character, going on about Soviet jewelry/etc.? Then a sweet little "Never mind!"
Why can I find clips of every part of Gilda Radner's stand up act except for the Emily Litella scene? I think I have found every version of this persona except for the one in her comedy act where she actually sits down and reads from her book "Tiny Kingdom" gr
This 4th of July we're playing Emily Litella or Michele Bachmann: "Now what all the fuss I hear about Hick Bosoms?"
Listening to the now. I was THRILLED to the core that did an Emily Litella "Never mind". I miss Gilda Radner.
Before Kristin Wiig, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey were earning laughs on Saturday Night Live, Gilda Radner graced the stage of studio 8H as one of the original queens of comedy. Whether as the frizzy-haired Roseanne Roseannadanna, the hard-of-hearing Emily Litella, or the unintelligible Baba Wawa (a pa...
Today in 1946, Gilda Radner was born. Her character Emily Litella is pretty much the entire basis for Fox News.
Known to television audiences as bumbling Emily Litella, scatterbrained Roseanne Roseannadanna, and nerdy Lisa Loopner, comedian Gilda Radner shot to stardom on NBC's Saturday Night Live (SNL). Hailed by critics as the next Lucille Ball, Radner's success in television in the 1970s led to a brief fil...
Heheh, that reminds me of the old SNL skit with Jane Curtin and "Emily Litella" (Gilda Radner) about "Violins on television."
