The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Shady Pines, Ma

Only in L.A.: an art show where the centerpiece is a painting of a topless Bea Arthur. [Not safe for ... um, anywhere, really.]

"Back in St Olaf you'd never see anything like this unless you happened to catch your blouse on a pitchfork," said Rose.

Actually, there ARE nude shots of Betty White out there. They're from the 40's or 50's, but they're roaming the countryside as we speak.

Geez. Now there's twice the Googlebait.

(Actually, Betty White was kinda hot back in the day, which explains a lot about the late Allen Ludden.)

I recently caught a 30-year-old episode of "Match Game" on GSN and was reminded Betty White wasn't half-bad looking for her age even then.

To be fair to Bea, she's always been in basically the same niche as Elaine Stritch: way short of cute, perhaps, but distinctive voice, sharp sense of satire, and legs to die for. Not a bad place to be, considering.

Well, I can't say you didn't warn me.

Oh my.

I stand by my original cry of awestruck horror.
