Betty White Turns 99, Still Great Example Of How To Live Happy, Long and Well

Man, who doesn’t love Betty White? Happy birthday to her, as she turned double 9’s. Just one year to hit the triple threat 100. Will be shocked if she doesn’t make it. Heck, she might just make it 10+ more years. I hope so.

With a career that spanned over eight decades and counting, including roles in The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls, as well as countless talk show and game show appearances, White has become an example of how to live well and live long. “I am blessed with good health,” she said, “so turning 99 is no different than turning 98.”

Like White’s humor, too. Caught her on a Comedy Central roast recently and she was funny without being profane. She has that Bill Cosby (his comedy, not his persona) type of clean comedy vibe. It’s a lot harder to be funny without being profane and Betty White does that well. She’s old school, and I mean that as a compliment.

Can you think of others that are funny and clean?
