Dear Abby, Dear Abby


Dear Abby, Dear Abby ...
My feet are too long
My hair's falling out and my rights are all wrong
My friends they all tell me that I've no friends at all
Won't you write me a letter, Won't you give me a call
Signed Bewildered

Bewildered, Bewildered...

Chorus:
You have no complaint
You are what your are and you ain't what you ain't
So listen up Buster, and listen up good
Stop wishing for bad luck and knocking on wood

Dear Abby, Dear Abby...
My fountain pen leaks
My wife hollers at me and my kids are all freaks
Every side I get up on is the wrong side of bed
If it weren't so expensive I'd wish I were dead
Signed Unhappy






Dear Abby' Writer Pauline Phillips Dead at 94

Pauline Phillips, best known as the beloved advice columnist “Dear Abby,” died on Wednesday at age 94.

TMZ reports that Pauline was suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, but no cause of death was given.

Phillips’ daughter Jeanne, who took over the column, told the site, "I have lost my mother, my mentor and my best friend. My mother leaves very big high heels to fill with a legacy of compassion, commitment and positive social change. I will honor her memory every day by continuing this legacy."

Pauline founded the syndicated "Dear Abby" column in 1956 under the penname Abigail Van Buren. Her twin sister, Eppie Lederer, had a similar advice series called “Ask Ann Landers.” Eppie died in 2002 after battling bone cancer.

1. I thought she (Pauline) had left us years ago...

And apparently, she had. She had a twin too who also ran an advice column, didn't she?

Anyway, thanks for the verse, IChing. And RIP, Dear Abby.
