I am very fortunate that I was able to meet actress Estelle Getty many times before she broke on through to the other side. It’s her birthday today (and she’s 88 years old), so if you are a fan of The Golden Girls, take a moment today to remember Sophia Petrillo, from one of the funniest TV shows of all time.

The Golden Girls by Glen Hanson.
The above image of the Golden Girls by Glen Hanson has become an icon that is nearly as famous as the girls themselves. The illustration has been featured on the cover of a book (The Q Guide to The Golden Girls by Jim Colucci), the viral video “Betty White Lines” and just try to visit San Francisco, New York or Los Angeles without running into that image on a T-shirt! Glen Hanson’s Golden Girls illustration has even been turned into a tattoo that looks pretty cool, according2g. Today on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, during a segment on “bad paid-for tattoos,” the image was featured giving the artist Glen Hanson no credit and no respect. You can see the image here:
We’d like to give credit to the artist and we’d also like to challenge Ellen’s choices about what makes “bad art” especially as this is the same person who featured former President George Bush on her show after he made his feelings about the ban on gay marriage abundantly clear.
Ellen might not have your back Glen, but According2g does! G power!
