Wake Up, It's Monday

Wake your brain with this: Four Comedians -- all with today's date in common: Who are they? 1.) Corporal Randolph Agarn 2.) Sidekick to both Roy Rogers & Gene Autry, and extreme irritant to Eddie Arnold. 3.) *Became famous playing a British cad: one such character was named: Lt. Col. Algernon Hawthorne 4.) A man of many voices who often had pie in his face. As a child his brothers called him, "Soup Bone." Extra Credit: Which two were born on this date in history? Which two died on this date in history? *Question three was modified after Doug graded my grammar and found me lacking.

Bill -- I figured when I wrote question 4 you'd get the answer right since you recently did a post on the movie I referenced.

#1 is Larry Storch, and #4 is Soupy Sales. For #2, Pat Buttram or Andy Devine?

Great quiz, Quilly!

Pauline -- maybe later -- not up to giggling myself just now.

Al -- #3 -- pick one. Use the date to decide which.

Lori -- I believe what you're looking for is down the hall and to the left.

Wow, Al! I had nothing. The best I can come up with for #2 is Gabby Hayes, but I wouldn't have called him a comedian.

My only path to dignity is to point out that your #3 lacks plural/singular agreement, Ms. Quilly.

OUCH! My brain! The only one I knew without googling was Soupy Sales! Quilly... you have too much TIME when you don't go to school!

And the Answers Are:

1.) Larry Storch, Corporal Agarn of F Troop.

2.) Pat Buttram, perpetual sidekick

3.) Terry Thomas, the cad of all cads

4.) Soupy Sales

Larry Storch and Soupy Sales were born (1923 & 1926, respectively) on January 8th.

Pat Buttram and Terry Thomas died (1994 & 1990, respectively) on January 8th.

Thanks for playing bill and Al -- all others, thanks for heckling.

Melli! We cross posted! Thanks for playing. Would you have gotten Soupy if I hadn't included his nickname?
