Something Erma Bombeck Said

Erma Bombeck is among my favorite humorists.  Her wit was such that she could reach both me, my grandmother, and a host of people in-between.  Her book The Grass is Always Greener over the Septic Tank made me belly laugh at times.  Erma died in 1996.  For all of her funny writings and quotes, she also wrote some concise and serious bits.  Here is one I like:

“Don’t confuse fame with success.  Madonna is one; Helen Keller is the other.”

--Mitchell Hegman


  1. And there's another (not Bombeck's) "Never confuse fame with notoriety. Barack is one; Trump is the other."
