Dolly Parton isn't only a tremendous singer — she's also a tremendous wit.
As she's proved countless times throughout the course of her career, the 70-year-old songstress has one of the silliest senses of humor in show business. And not only is she funny, but she's often delivers her most self-depricating humor with honesty, modesty, and a innocent smirk that leaves us chuckling and charmed at the same time.
In honor of Dolly's 70th, we're taking a look back at her quickest quips and most brilliant one-liners. Keep reading for five of her funniest, but be sure to hold on to your wigs hats:
— during a 2014 interview on the "Today" show in which she was asked about her marriage to husband Carl Thomas Dean.
— during an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" after DeGeneres asked if Parton ever worries about wardrobe malfunctions. ("I'd probably take out the first three rows," she also remarked.)
— during her 2009 commencement speech before the graduating class of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
— during a 1980 interview with Roger Ebert, after he asked whether she'd be willing to take a serious acting role after "9 to 5."
— during a passage about her famous hair in the 1995 memoir "Dolly: My Life and Other Unfinished Business."
