Mememe (Of course, It's about ME)

Tag, I'm it again. I do remember Lucy and Chernobyl (and that wouldn't have happened on my birthday except that part of the USSR was +7 hours ahead, even though it was 4/25/86 where I was)...Thanks to my elegant F.O. for the tag!

- Carol Burnett, American comedian, 1933
- Bobby Rydell, American singer, 1942 (remember as Philadelphia singer who sang “Wild One”)
Died on April 26:
- Lucille Ball, American actress and comedian, 1989
Events on April 26:

Wow...You sure have cool people being born (and o.k. dying) on your birthday. The Chernobyl thing wasn't so cool (actually it was thermonuclearly hot). I'm glad you participated in the meme.

Oooohhh...Bobby Rydell. I had a little crush on him especially after seeing him in "Bye Bye Birdie." And I find it ironic that one of America's finest comediennes died on this day while the other was born on the very same day.
