The Fruitcake Lady Had Life Advice for Us All
Marie Rudisill was called the Fruitcake Lady and folks used to tune into the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to hear her advice. And lowkey, she’s me in 60 years. I enjoy her and I aspire to be this kinda old lady. The kind who gives no dambs about feelings. I’m already half way there in my couthlessness. It’s a lifelong journey.
This clip below is from September 21, 2004 and it shows why she’s about that life.
The man whose wife only bathes once a week because she doesn’t want her skin to dry out. MA’AM, JESUS INVENTED LOTION FOR THESE VERY REASONS! DO PEOPLE DO THIS ON PURPOSE? I’m talmbout folks who DON’T live on 25 cents a day. Aunty Fruitcake said: “That to me is just a poor excuse to be nasty.” YUP! That’s exactly what it is.
About the man who needs tips on how to learn how to kiss: “If you are that stupid that you can’t find a girl that will allow you to kiss herm then it’s just too bad. I don’t know. Go kiss the ass of a monkey or something.” HAAAA!!!
To the woman whose boyfriend is afraid of rollercoasters: “There’s nothing wrong with him. I wouldn’t get on one myself.” Marie is truly me because add me to the “I hate rollercoasters” club. Don’t blame me. My friends dragged me on 17 rollercoasters in 2 days at Cedar Point amusement park 4 years ago and I’ve been scared straight since. NO KANK YOU!
Then there’s the dude who wants to invite his 15 year old son to the bachelor party his friends are throwing him. “OMG WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?? Are you completely an idiot?” GO IN, DEN!
And the dumbest question she was asked yet. The lady talmbout her boyfriend and her have been together for 9 years. “Do you think if I got pregnant, he’d ask me to marry him?” Fruitcake Lady went CLEAN off. “Well aren’t you a GAHTdamb fool? You can go ahead and get pregnant and that guy is gonna walk off and leave you.” WELP!
But the cherry on top of the awesome sundae came with the lady who asked her if she thinks she should stop using bad language. Our Gooning Granny said “Hell no!” Damb right!
Chile, I don’t e’em care that Jay and his team prolly fed these people questions. Fruitcake Lady’s answers had me hollering.
Marie followed the drinking gourd up to our Lord in 2006. But we shan’t forget that she was a real G. Telling it like it is. Never forget.
So whatchu think of Marie the Fruitcake Lady? Can you picture her chasing people off her lawn like a pro?
P.S. Shoutout to my girl SanTara (@TheGorgeousBlog) for bringing Marie into my life. She is us. We is she.
