Twenty years ago, a skit I remembered only as "Blossom Butterworth" from The Carol Burnett Show became a massive obsession with the party clique that Lahoma, Lady Bunny and I would drag back to our pad at 5 Ninth Ave after the club closed. Still buzzing, we would scream and howl, watching it on repeat until the sun came beaming through the second story window. This ritual went on for many, many months.
The Carol Burnett Show had been off the air for ten years by that point, but was still a major reference source for everyone in our group of friends... and clearly still is today, as you'll recognize a line in this skit that I use on every episode of Drag Race.
Yesterday, I described the skit to Brett Clement and he did the research and found it (it's actually called "PTA Show"). I can't tell you how happy seeing it again has made me. Just wait tell I show Bunny and Lahoma. GOD BLESS YOUTUBE and Brett and Carol Burnett.
