Around the Horn: The Gender-Bending Edition

If you could be someone in history of the opposite sex, who would that person be?

If I could be a woman I would be Carol Burnett.  “Huh!?”… You say.  Well,  I love her comedy and she is a true comedic pioneer.  She was the Dave Chappelle of her era in my opinion. I remember as a kid watching The Carol Burnett show and dreaming of one day doing what she did on stage.  Her show was unique because at the end she would talk to the audience, making you feel like she was talking to you.  Making you feel the laughs were for you. The more I got to know the woman behind the comedy talent the more I respected what Carol accomplished in her life.  Her gift to her audience is a tremendous one.  Making people laugh is a powerful contribution.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bJoEfjHbvc[/youtube]
