Can you imagine if you were in your house, and the doorbell rang, and it was Tim Gunn? Wouldn’t you be just the happiest person in the world?

Carol Burnett’s classic characters from her old CBS TV show retain their timeless comic spark despite the passing of the decades. This month the comedian turns—God bless us all—80 years old. She doesn’t look it. And I bet she still has the vocal prowess to execute her famous Tarzan yell.
