2. I felt the same way in the south

There I was, a Yankee from an Irish Catholic family turned atheist in a sea of Southern Baptists. It's a good thing they didn't know about my dubious ancestry, they'd have had a couple of other directions to run away.

It didn't help that I was gawky, wore jar bottom glasses, and was a math shark.

I also was raised as an Irish Catholic--lost my religion in Vietnam.

6. Excellent place to lose it. Catholic school did it for me.

I'm convinced Catholic schools were an institution dedicated to the production of atheists. Most I know in real life survived Catholic school.

11. The best part of Catholic school

Was that it was a sort of spiritual immunization against falling for fundamentalism. I know of not one of my classmates that became "born again". And so, that is a pretty amazing feat, really.

7. She cracks me up

I liked her in, The new adventures of old Christine, with Julia Louis Dryfus.

8. Wanda! So many times

her little remarks as a "throwaway" hit so close to the mark - there are so many movies that wouldn't be the same if Wanda wasn't there!

12. "I think you dislocated my vagina."

I have to wonder if Wanda Sykes ad libbed that line in "Monster In Law" to try and make Jane Fonda break up laughing.
