Jackée Harry turns 50 today. Fifty and fabulous, that is. Now for the love of all that’s holy, here’s hoping Marc Cherry gets smart and casts her as Wisteria Lane’s resident gossip. Or maybe Shonda Rhimes could work her in as a saucy Seattle Grace nurse. Maybe both! As this YouTube clip from her 227 days shows, Jackée’s certainly got the over-the-top comic chops to handle both assignments. (“A Christmas present you’d exchange?” “An olllllld man.”) Alas, though, since I don’t have the power to make either dream a reality, Ms. Harry will have to settle for a humble haiku. Won’t you write her one too?

Bring the hokey back
227, full of sass
“Morning, Pearl,” a gas
