Erma Louise Bombeck (born Erma Fiste; February 21, 1927 – April 22, 1996) was an American humorist who achieved great popularity for her newspaper column that described suburban home life humorously from the mid-1960s until the late 1990s.
Bombeck also published lots of books, most of which became best-sellers.
From 1965 to 1996, Erma Bombeck wrote over 4,000 newspaper columns chronicling the ordinary life of a midwestern suburban housewife with broad, and sometimes eloquent, humor.
By the 1970s, her columns were read, twice weekly, by thirty million readers of 900 newspapers of the U.S. and Canada. She was funny - very, very funny.
She wrote lots of books.
Here are 76 of her most quotable quotes:
Hazel McCallion has won 12 consecutive municipal elections to remain the Mayor of Mississauga, Ontario, (Canada’s sixth largest city), for the past 36 years, outlasting a total of eight Canadian Prime Ministers.
That in itself is amazing. Even more so is the fact that Hazel just celebrates her 93rd birthday as I update this in 2014, and is still going strong.
