Arthur's most famous role was that of Dorothy on Golden Girls, where she shared a house with her elderly mother and two friends. The show was celebrated for its open discussions of senior's sexuality. Dorothy's famous catchphrase "I'd let that slam me for a dollar" caught the public imagination in the summer of 1988, and would later become the official slogan of the Dukakis presidential campaign. In private life, Arthur was a well known activist for animals' rights and a promoter of underground fights in high-end Los Angeles area night spots. A committed method actor, Arthur--famous for her portrayal of old women--would often stay in character as an old woman for years at a time, much to the delight of friends and family. In many respects, Arthur was the exact opposite of the typical Cracked reader, in that she was a woman, older than 35 and not constantly masturbating at a low level. Beyond that, Arthur came from a different comedy-era entirely, having honed her skills on the stage, working with archaic concepts like "timing" and "delivery" and without the aid of modern comedy tools like Photoshop or Transformers references. Put more plainly, she was damned funny in a way we're not--and we pour some malt-comedy-ale (Zima?) on the ground to salute her. Here's an example which neatly intersects Arthur's talents with the ass-jokes that Cracked readers desperately crave: her reading of the sodomy related sections of Pamela Anderson's semi-autobiographical Star Struck during a roast of the aforementioned "author."
Click to play. Probably not safe for work, though it is damned hilarious. Depending on your situation, this may actually be worth losing your job over. Arthur is survived by three children, who are currently working to resurrect her in robotic form, as per her final wishes. __
