It is a little known fact that Dolly Parton is the unofficial queen of gay people everywhere. She is also considered a genius. Fact.
A recent poll saw her ranked 94th living genius. Apparently a company called Creators Synetics e-mailed 4,000 people in the UK and asked them to nominate up to 10 living people that they considered geniuses.
Dolly hasn't acknowledged her genius status though. "A cartoon character is how I see myself and it's worked for me for 40 years. I would rather be a cartoon than a genius!"
Anyhoo, to celebrate here is some examples of her wit and self-deprecating humour...
"People know I have no taste, no style and no class. If I have any class it's all low... Even after I got enough money where I could afford to dress properly, what kind of fun would that be? Hell, they know I look like a whore. No matter how much I spend or how I dress, I'm still going to look cheap."
"It took my hair stylist three hours to get my hair ready for this performance. Thank God I didn't have to be there!"
"It's a good thing I was born a girl, otherwise I'd be a drag queen."
"You'd be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap!"
And finally, when asked if her titties were real, Dolly replied: "Yep they are mine! Bought and paid for!"
What's not to love about this amazing woman?
