Happy birthday, Lucy! – Lucille Ball born on August 6, 1911 may have been born 100 years ago today, but her jokes are timeless.
Google celebrates her birthday through the old-timey TV doodle live on the google.com homepage all day on August 6th, you can flip the six channels for a special Lucy broadcast (see the video at the end of this post).
Having grown up with the comedic genius of “I Love Lucy,” it’s hard to believe that Lucy, Desi, Fred, and Ethel wrapped up the initial series in 1957. Lucy’s creativity, absurdity, and ever-changing facial expressions (especially when she was scarfing down candy, stomping on grapes or touting a new energy drink) have brought joy and laughter to generations of viewers.
