I love Maxine. I love the sunglasses. I love the bunny slippers. And I really love her “I’m not taking any shit from the likes of you” attitude. Maxine is no cuddly septuagenarian. I’m sure she’s been a hell raiser since she’s been old enough to walk and talk. She may have grown up in an era when young girls were expected to be demure and lady like, but I’ll bet that Maxine could probably throw a baseball (or shoot a spitball) as well as any boy. Speaking of boys, she’s probably decked a few in her day. There’s not a doubt in my mind that if you look at enough old film footage, you’ll see Maxine dancing naked at Woodstock. TV’s Dr. Gregory House and Uncle Duke of “Doonesbury” fame are undoubtedly her descendants.

But what I love most about Maxine is how she reminds me of my aunt, a septuagenarian herself, who is a damn spunky old broad in her own right. The only difference is my aunt doesn’t wear sunglasses in the house.

And I don’t think she ever got naked at Woodstock.

    Classic! A page devoted to Maxine .. love it! You’d love my mother’s kitchen: nothing BUT Maxine .. everywhere. And the walls are painted *ahem* I painted, the same color blue as Maxine’s hair.

    Maxine deserves no less! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hilarious! I was hoping for a mood elevator as my stress level is out of control in that I’m resisting the urge to choke the life out of a certain feckless 21 yr old that I have recently been charged with turning into something resembling a useful member of society. So thank you – thank you ! for giving me a truly hardy laugh, I will refer to Maxine’s quote’s frequently 🙂

    I’ve always loved Maxine. Sometimes I think she is my alter ego. But most times, I know she is my usual ego and I just have a sweeter facade. 😉

    Really? Then you’re my kinda gal! 😉

    Maxine IS my alter ego! For those that don’t understand our humor, you NEVER will! Sarcasm is a GREAT gift!
    Thank you for the laughs!

    I have the original Maxine bunny slippers from 2003, the thongs. I wear them every day and wash them when necessary. I love Maxine’s attitude since it very much reflects my own. Some people don’t understand sarcasm, but I believe it takes a quit and sharp wit to be truly and effectively sarcastic. Keep up the great work!
