She was funny IMO but comedy is veyr much personal taste.  Some people think Steve Martin and Mel Brooks geniuses both but they leave me cold.

I loved that thing she had going on with Morrissey in the 80s where they were swiping each others lyrics ("scratch my name on your arm with a fountain pen") and both seemed very happy about it; more of  atribute thing than plagiarising.  She commented on it in her usual (IMHO) witty way with:

"Morrissey and I are very much in love but have yet to meet"
