Country legend Dolly Parton has joined the large list of Americans taking the ice bucket challenge. 

Parton accepted hers from her old pal Kenny Rogers, who she joked "didn't think" she would dump ice water over her head with her "wig, fake nails and false lashes."  But after taking the challenge with the help of her nieces, a drenched Parton joked about a wet t-shirt and added, "you'd be surprised at what all I do with my Falsies." And Dolly wins our T.M.I. award today!
