Quotes That Made Me Laugh #63

It’s been a while…

…since I posted a quote that made be laugh, so here’s one that made be laugh out loud earlier today…

Every now and then you read a newspaper article that is best described as a feelgood piece. Today’s Graun had such a tale relating to a record-breaking film extra, or ‘background artist’ as they are apparently known.

Jill Goldston, for it is she, is now a Guinness world record holder after appearing as an uncredited artist in, at the time of writing, 1951 films. We know the number because her husband, an accountant to whom she has been married for 60 years kept, well, an account of them.

You can read the full article here, but the quote that made me laugh came where the journalist who interviewed her congratulated her on her 60th wedding anniversary. Her reply made me snort-laugh and spill my coffee:

“I think it shows a lack of imagination, actually.”
