    Although a fictional character, Maude was the first feminist I ever encountered. So I’ve always had a place in my heart for Bea Arthur.

    Comicus: Stand-up philosopher.
    Dole Office Clerk: What?
    Comicus: Stand-up philosopher. I coalesce the vapors of human experience into a viable and meaningful comprehension.
    Dole Office Clerk: Oh, a *bulls**** artist!
    Comicus: *Grumble*…
    Dole Office Clerk: Did you bulls*** last week?
    Comicus: No.
    Dole Office Clerk: Did you *try* to bulls*** last week?
    Comicus: Yes!

    So long, Bea.
