Alice Chalifoux obit

"Her wit was famous, often unprintable and national in scope."

So says this obituary for legendary Cleveland Orchestra harpist Alice Chalifoux, who died recently at age 100. Unfortunately, it didn't include any of the printable wit.

Know any good Chalifoux quips or anecdotes? Post them here, and share!
