<< << well, i know that's flip wilson's voice. he used to have his own comedy
in the 70s on tv. i'm assuming that the sample is from one of his records
something like that, however, it's possible it might have been from an snl
skit--it's entirely possible that flip guested on the show, richard pryor

anyway, flip had one character he used to do in drag (geraldine) and i'm
that's the source of the sample. btw, he also used to do a bit called
comes the judge", and he's also famous for "the devil made me do it" (not
that he originated that phrase, but he *is* known for it).

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that it's Flip Wilson doing his Geraldine bit. The
Flip Wilson show (where he did his Geraldine Character) comes on TV Land (a
cable station run by Nickelodeon) at 9:30pm each night. Check it out if you
get the station.
