The Dolly Parton Story on 'Drunk History' Was Television at Its Finest

Posted By on Wed, Aug 21, 2013 at 3:30 PM

While the whole "Drunk History" concept isn't all that new - Funny or Die has been doing these skits online since 2007 - and it might just be the slightly higher production values at work, but the recent run of episodes on Comedy Central have become must see television at the Gibson house. Winona Ryder's appearance as executed Quaker Mary Dyer was about as enjoyable as anything I can remember on TV this year, and then last night, in a synergy of my interests in 70's country music and intoxication, the segment discussing Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner was educational, emotional and hilarious. You should really be watching the show in its entirety, but here's a clip from the Parton sketch to whet your appetite.
