J is for Judge Judy (That's Double Points By the Way)
The Judge is currently 68-years-old and is known for her no-nonsense demanor and colloquial sayings as she presides over small-claims cases in her Los Angeles courtroom. When I think of Judge Judy I always think about Saturday Night Live's Cheri Oteri playing Judge Judy and jacking everything up to the extreme and screaming at her bailiff Burt - as played by Tracy Morgan. And just as a quick aside, let me tell you this: I have been watching a lot of Golden Girls lately and I am writing this rather early in the morning so I am not quite with it yet. That being said as I was was doing some basic research into the Judge Judy show, they had a whole section about her phrases she uses and I was hearing and seeing them all in my mind as being said by Sophia from Golden Girls. Strangely enough, it works really well.
But I digress. Let's just hope that Judge Judy gets well from whatever ails her. Producers have said that she will be back for her next taping on April 12, 2011 so I guess that is good news. Actually, all the tests they did came back negative so she just needs a little rest and relaxation. That is even better news. Television wouldn't be the same without her.
