What Was Your Aunt Barbara Like?


Thanks to the trail of two Joe bloggers, I am glad to meet Aunt Barbara. It's eerie that not only did I have an Aunt Barbara but just as Barbara has a sidekick named Helen that too was my mother's name. Further evidence that the best drag queens are in suburbia.

I wish I had an Aunt Barbara! My childhood would have been a lot more fun!

Aunt B's video on potted meats is hilarously nauseating. Reminds me when my mother had a mysterious can of "Bif" in the pantry.

Steve - Actually my Aunt Barbara was NOTHING like this. She outsourced any domestic chores but had an incredible fashion sense.

Bryce - Did your mother know about the importance of mechanically separated chicken? I wonder what Alice Waters' take is on that subject?

Bryce - I really credit the internet for the demise of live drag shows. Why saunter up to Polk Street to dodge hooker boys and alleys filled with dirty needles when with the click of the mouse I can get sage advice from Aunt Barbara in the comfort of my elegantly appointed Mission District pied-à-terre?

She's like AUNTIE MAME! Hey, does this broad have money to gimme? I'll take her!

WAT - I saw one interview with here where she said that she makes more selling Tupperware than at her day job. She gives five parties a week and said that she sells $100,000 worth of Tupperware a year. I can't imagine her take on $100,000 would be that much.
