That's him. And I didn't even have a chance to use my clue,
"God bless the tulips, every one."
Oh, you're supposed to say what he was famous for though.

Well lots of things, but he got married on the Johnny Carson Show to Miss Vicki. He was an odd singer who sang novelty songs like "Tiptoe Thru the Tulips" in a falsetto voice. He was so bad that he was good. It was never clear to me whether he was in on the joke or he was serious.

I was surprised you got the Tunisian martyr so fast. It's been three months after all. Good job.

We had a discussion on the situation in one of my psych classes last quarter Smile

Treacher sounds familiar but I can't place it.

Ray is right that Americans would probably know Treacher for a different aspect of his career than the overseas crowd.
For those of us on this side, think sidekick.

Okay, Arthur Treacher was an English character actor who often played the dry witted butler in the movies, including several Jeeves movies. He also was in a bunch of Shirley Temple movies. But he was probably best known in the US as the crotchety sidekick to Merv Griffin on the latter's long-running sixties television talk show, often being less than amenable to Merv. Treacher parleyed his fame and fortune into the establishment of the Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips fast food chain, a few of which still exist.

Someone else want to go?
