Separated at birth?

Mrs. Schori and Carol Burnett:

More proof:

Oh, and look! They even have the same dressmaker!

She does need a stylist in the worst way; I'm sure Nancy Pelosi could recommend a few names. She's not a very "smart" liturgical dresser, and when she's in her civis, it's even worse. And then there's the hair and lack of make-up. It is really a triumph of feminism when the first female primate isn't discernably female?

With all due respect to SF - now that's what I call a Friday afternoon palate cleanser.

I loved that show - that was back when writers still had to be clever instead of just cynical and filthy. "I just saw it in the window and couldn't resist".

Do you think she might qualify for "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"? Seems apropos.

I find this post to be terribly offensive to Carol Burnett.

She could really use the writers which Carol Burnett had on her show.

My knee-jerk reaction, also, was, "Why drag Carol Burnett into this?" But then I remembered the good twin/evil twin trope, and it all fell into place.

Heh - the "good twin, evil twin" was also made into a memorable Carol Burnett Sketch, where she played wimpy little Patsy and her vampish cousin who marries Bill (Harvey Korman). I still vividly remember Harvey admiring Patsy's sketch of a lighthouse, with rapid glances back and forth between them - "You've captured it!", and the funny way he had of putting his pipe in his mouth (it involved what looked like a number of false starts). It was a spoof of the Bette Davis movie, "A Stolen Life". I think they might have called it "A Swiped Life', but I'm not sure; very funny, though.

I love Carol Burnett. She is extremely funny.

The Presiding Bishop is not funny. She is deadly serious.

Well, Schori is pretty funny actually, just not intentionally.

I sure hate to quote Wikipedia about anything, but it says about a fellow San Antonian:

When Burnett was in the fourth grade she created for a short time an imaginary twin sister named Karen, with Shirley Temple-like dimples. Motivated to further the pretense Burnett recalled fondly that she "fooled the other boarders in the rooming house where we lived by frantically switching clothes and dashing in and out of the house by the fire escape and the front door. Then I became exhausted and Karen mysteriously vanished."

So there you have it. Knock yourself out, Carol ... please!
