Carol Channing Breaks a Hip#1

I guess she mis-understood her fans before the show...

They meant 'leg'...

Not a laughing matter. At her age this can be serious. My Mom passed away during the surgery for this kind of injury.

Of course it's not a laughing matter!

Carol is a wonderful person and I hope she recovers quickly.

Sorry to hear about your mom.

I hope she heals quickly. Fortunately, she has taken very good care of herself over the years. Here's hoping that contributes to her having a full recovery.

Aw, she'll be fine. She's the Cher of musical theatre. You just can't keep her down.

Except that Carol never lip-syncs.
I hear our beloved Carol slipped on a corn cob which had fallen on the floor from her dinner plate. Poor dear.
PEACE.

I spoke to her husband earlier today and he told me that Carol's doing fine and should be up and around in no time.
