Diamond Lil is a feisty 75-year-old widow living in Turkey Knuckle, Indiana, who doesn't suffer fools, or anyone else for that matter, gladly. Her interests include telling people what she really thinks, hot bingo and cold Schlitz. She also has a thing for Pat Sajak's butt.
Julie Larson began writing The Dinette Set comic in 1990, then called Suburban Torture, offering a satire on middle class culture. The Dinette Set became syndicated in 1997. When asked where Julie gets all of her ideas, she admits there is only one way to write a daily comic: write about what you know. "I make no bones about who’s really talking in The Dinette Set," says Julie, who is writer, director and cast of The Dinette Set. "If we can’t make fun of ourselves, who will?"
