    @KratostheThird You shouldn’t be amazed. There is only one Lucy, the legacy will live forever. :) )

    I’m amazed that Lucy continues to makes audiences laugh, even 20+ years after her death.

    It’s a shame that I wasn’t there to celebrate, since I’m from the West Coast and I just didn’t have the time to make arrangements. I’m looking forward to seeing this marked on next year’s Guinness Book of World Records.

    Truly a historical moment. Let the memories live on.
