It's a mixer, Pats

This "Gay Xmas Eve", we must pay due tribute to one of the most influential of all British comedy performers and screenwriters, Miss Jennifer Saunders, who is sixty years old today!

Alongside the dearly departed Victoria Wood, "Our Jen" - whether in partnership with the wonderful Dawn French, the eternal Joanna Lumley, or whoever - has provided much of the quotable material that enriches our daily lives, such as:
  • "We ARE those Lucky Bitches."
  • "It's LaCroix, sweetie!"
  • "You can have a Hubneub. That's Swedish for Hobnob."
  • "It's a mixer, Pats, we have it with whisky."
  • "Dry clean a t-shirt, I couldn't believe it - I should be dry cleaning her knickers next time."
  • "What did the Krankies say to you? They said 'Fan-daby-dozy'."
  • "Gorgeous, tasteful, little stylish little gorgeous things!"
  • "Are you going to do the accent at all?"
  • “The last mosquito that bit me had to book into the Betty Ford Clinic.”
  • "Your mother sucks jelly babies in hell!"
...and so on...

We adore her.

Happy birthday, Jennifer Jane Saunders (born 6th July 1958)


  1. Never saw her work with French, but Absolutely Fabulous did make it across the ocean, and it was great.

    1. Oh, you should explore it - you really should... Jx
