Andy Rooney Quote on Women Over 50

From Andy Rooney on CBS’s 60 Minutes:

Sometimes we discover gems of wisdom that have been right on our doorstep for, well… for a long time! Many of us have all heard the best of Andy Rooney quotes for a long, long time. Here Rooney shared his insight on what makes women over 50 so smart, sexy, and fun! Here you go:

“As I grow in age, I value women over 50 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 50 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, ‘What are you thinking?’ She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over 50 doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it’s usually more interesting.

Women over 50 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it’s like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age.

You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 50. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 50 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest.. They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 50 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 50, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, ‘Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? Here’s an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage.Why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage.”

Andy Rooney was a popular and beloved television writer and reporter. His segment on 60 Minutes “A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney” ran for over 30 years. He was presented with the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism and the Emperor Has No Clothes Award from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Rooney was smart, irreverent, opinionated and often embroiled in controversies over comments he made.

In today’s Me Too environment, he may or may not have fared well. However, for women over 50 who DO know their value, this quote about women over fifty is a fun and humorous view by one man on the distinctly unique value of mature women. Worth a look – and a laugh.
