All that glitters…
Everyone forgets that Ellen got her start as a stand-up comic. She was really great then, she’s even better now.
I remember her stand-up days (does that date me?). One routine that particularly stickes in my mind is her asking god to justify creating fleas. Some of the better lines (it’s up to the audience to imagine god’s responses:
God? It’s Ellen…Elen DeGeneres…no, nobody ever mentioned to me that my last name sounds like that.
Fleas are vermin, they suck blood and carry disease…no, I hadn’t considered the hundreds of people employed in the flea collar industry.
A lot of people probably don’t remember the days when Bob Newhart and Cosby were standup comedians either.
Oops! I put an extre ‘e’ in “sticks”.
And misspelled “Ellen”.
I’ve loved Ellen for many years. I think she’s the BESTEST in the Biz. Her comedy is so natural & spontaneous. If you watch her TV show, she can just shoot one outta the park without thinking about it. And her generosity is A+. And above all, she is a Animal Lover!! A CLASS ACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ellen doesn’t know what the “Deep State” is?
Either she needs to get a life, or I do.

O – She knows what it is. This is part of her setup for the jokes that follow.
Just like you set us up for your punchline! (I saw what you did there!)
