Is there anything Betty White can't do?
On Tuesday, the Forest Service in Washington, D.C., named the Golden Girls actress an honorary Forest Ranger, according to The Associated Press. White noted that she wanted to be a forest ranger growing up, but women weren't allowed at the time. Now she has a ranger hat, a badge and a bear-hug from Smokey the Bear.
"Wilderness is harder and harder to find these days on this beautiful planet, and we're abusing our planet to the point of almost no return," White said. "In my heart I've been a forest ranger all my life, but now I'm official."
The Emmy-winning actress is also in Washington to honor Tina Fey, who is receiving the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.
"It's a formal affair," White said. "Would it be all right if I wore the hat"
