On her birthday celebrating 90 years on this earth, Carol Burnett took some questions from the studio audience while appearing on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

The Secret To Life

Instead of hoping to learn more about Carol's career or The Carol Burnett Show, one female audience member wanted Carol's best advice for life. And her response was entertaining, but also sound.

"In the 90 years that you've been on this planet, what would you say is the most important thing you've learned?" one audience member asked Carol Burnett.

Carol quickly answered as one might expect, using humor.

"Do you have about 40 hours?" Carol said.

This response caused several members of the audience to chuckle. But then, after a few moments, after the laughter died down, Carol gave an answer that does make a lot of sense, coming from a comedian.

"Not to take yourself too seriously," Carol stated.

What terrific advice!

How much better would this world be if people did not get so upset and worked up about every little perceived slight? Not every situation is a life-and-death matter. People need to relearn how to take a joke, especially when it comes at their expense.

Also, as Carol answered other questions from the audience, we learned that she has a thing for one of the biggest names in Hollywood: George Clooney. How Carol revealed her crush on "The Ides of March" star caused Kelly to double over in laughter.
