Paul Lynde was born on June 13th, 1926. While he sadly had a short life, he was a very successful comedian, voice artist, game show panelist, and actor. He had an extremely spunky and snarky attitude. He would often poke fun at his sexual orientation (he would never shy away from it)! Many may remember Lynde for his roles as Uncle Arthur on Bewitched and Harry MacAfee in Bye Bye Birdie. However, many people know him as a regular “center square” panelist on the game show The Hollywood Squares from 1968 to 1981.

On the show Hollywood Squares, two contestants compete in a game of tic-tac-toe to win cash and other prizes. While the show was completely legitimate, the focus mainly surrounds its comedic aspect. Lynde just so happened to provide some of the best one-liners in the show.

According to Wikipedia, most of the jokes were usually supplied by the show’s writers.

Either way, they’re hilarious! Check out the video below and get ready to laugh your head off. Do you remember any of these hilarious Paul Lynde one-liners?
