I have always loved that woman. And, honestly, it was never her boobs. Those are just an amazing bonus.

Love, love, love her.

ltnor: A national treasure.


I came here to say that. She truly is.

Thank you, Ms Parton, for not being a good person who stands aside and does nothing.
 
2020-08-13 7:24:42 PM  
Okay, you. Yes, you. Go ahead and tweet that Dolly Parton supports terrorists and hates America and the Flag.

You'll find out that certain feces just won't stick.

A remarkably talented woman who has apparently entered the dgaf stage of her career.

The world is truly a better and more vibrant place with her in it.

In other news, Dolly will be finishing her synthetic android body.

It's looking like this thread went to shiat.

When the fires burned through Gatlinburg and Pigeon Force TN in 2016, Dolly put up her own money to make sure the Dollywood employees still got paychecks, even though the park was damaged and would not reopen for a while.

She is one of the kindest people that has ever lived.   She is one of the few people that actually make me doubt my atheism.

I'm sure most of the people at Dollywood are Trump types but she can read the tea leaves as well as anybody.  President Moron is about done and she knows it.

She is a person who never forget where - and what - she came from.

Am actually in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge right now, and it IS lousy with MAGAs. Fishing on Douglas Lake and saw plenty of mid-grade pontoon boats flying dump flags. Had lunch at the Old Mill and the guy two tables over giving the waitress a hard time was wearing a "God, Guns, and trump!" shirt. Sleeveless, of course.

But people here LOVE Dolly Parton. Every man, woman, and child look up to her like she is a living saint. That sweet old lady selling trinkets on Parkway Drive? Say one I'll word about "Our Dolly" and she. Will. Cut. You.

The closest I can equate it to is how Philadelphians feel about Rocky Balboa.

And, this.  Everybody have a great night.  There's nothing I have to add here.  Smoke a bowl, watch 9 to 5 and enjoy.

And Dolly was an ally of the LGBT community WAY before it was "OK" to do so.

She's also one of the few people who made Colonel Parker blink.  Elvis wanted to do one of her songs, but Col. Parker insisted she sign the publishing rights over to him.  She stood her ground and said no.  She has never been anyone's fool.

If y'all listen to podcasts and haven't listened to Dolly Parton America yet, do it.

The divine exists

Our understanding of it however is flawed.

/ My point is to doubt the flawed semi intelligent primates. We have a track record of getting things wrong. The really big picture stuff is there, we are just absolutely lousy at understanding it.

One of my favourite performances of Dolly's works was 9-5 on 2 Many DJs by Soulwax.

But when you load it up these days, when 9-5 is supposed to kick in, it's just silence.

Radio Soulwax - As Heard On Radio Soulwax Part 2

So, fark you, Dolly. Let us enjoy your music, particularly when twisted DJs are involved.

Harrumph.

I will always love her.
 
2020-08-13 9:27:51 PM  
She has also donated at least $1M to Vanderbilt University for covid research.

Her philanthropy is almost unparalleled. She has done more for more people than Jesus. When she passes it will be a national day of mourning.

And I will fight anyone who says otherwise.

To add to the thread's list of her awesome deeds, her Imagination Library provides free books to kids from birth to age 5, and that's a farking beautiful thing.

I don't recall a single person on Fark who said anything negative about her.

/As it should be.

Like Fred Rogers there has got to be some horrible secret she's hiding. Maybe not torching a Korean village, but something...

They hear strange noises at night from Dollywood.

What's she building in there?

She's just too damned nice. Probably a serial killer...or Canadian.

Wonder how Fox News will cover this? Either they'll ignore it or have a meltdown.

Miley Cyrus was probably visiting.

Dolly is her godmother.

I love this quote because it sums up a huge part of the problem so simply. Just remove "it's a business" and put "it's life" (which she clearly believes based on the end of that sentence).

"When they said 'Dixie' was an offensive word, I thought, 'Well, I don't want to offend anybody. This is a business. We'll just call it The Stampede.' As soon as you realize that [something] is a problem, you should fix it. Don't be a dumbass. That's where my heart is. I would never dream of hurting anybody on purpose."

So many people double down when they're told something is racist. Just change it. What's the worst that happens?

I can say a nasty thing about most celebrities but it's tough to hate on Dolly.  Like Tom Hanks-Tough.
Unless we learn she's been torturing a woman named "Jolene" in the depths of Dollywood over the last 40 years, she's clean.

How do you think she paid the Dollywood employees all those months after the fire.
Whitney Houston made her a shiatload of money.

God I love her.

I am not afraid to say that I love her for all of that AND her boobs. There I said it. I love all of her.
 
2020-08-13 10:28:58 PM  
I could motorboat her from 9 to 5. What a way to make a living.
 
2020-08-13 10:43:51 PM  
We need to find the real Fountain of Youth, or Dragon Balls, or a Genii or something to make her 20 years old again. Forget about her hot body, I don't think we could survive her wonderful innate Goodness leaving this world.
 
2020-08-13 11:18:55 PM  
Wow. Dolly is famously apolitical. For her to come out and say that is pretty much her in a rage.
 
2020-08-13 11:23:31 PM  
Before I forget:
Dolly.

Charo.

Guitar battle.

Someone make it happen.
 
2020-08-13 11:24:13 PM  
Dolly is the kind of Christian I want to be every day and fail to be far too often. But, I look at her example and reason that I can try a little harder.

She wrote that song and Jolene on the same freaking day.  Pure talent.

They're just as capable of ignoring their heroes saying compassionate things as they are of ignoring their heroes flaws.
