Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

QUASSAR'S QUIZ????

Let's see if you have paid attention in class now, if you look close you'll see where this snapshot was taken in 1954.

WHO DAT????
He later became a Circus Producer.
He also became an Uncle!

TRIVIA QUESTION:
Trudy fixed Cheeseburgers for lunch and as I sat down I said, "Can I pay you tomorrow, for a hamburger today"
Now my question is, what was the name of the guy, in what comic strip, who's shirt buttons kept popping off into the chicken's mouth?
TRIVIA ANSWER
Fat Stuff

Is it George Hubler in the driver's seat? And is it Whimpy from Popeye near the hamburger grill?

Yes!

Mike, I cheated, I intentionally threw a curve on the trivia question,(power of suggestion). You are right on the hamburger, but read the question again.

Gotcha, I don't remember Whimpy and the button popping. To be fair, I answered that question at 1:30 AM, burning the midnight oil in the office.

Doesn't George still have that car and trailer? (I'm kidding, I'm only kidding)

I bet he wishes he still had it.
He probably still has the trailer.

When Trudy & I were on the Gil Gray show we had a 1959 Oldsmobile Super 88, 4 door hardtop convertable that I'd give my eye teeth to own now.

I'll tell one out of school, when we ate in restaurants he would always order ice tea w/ double lemon, & a glass of water. When he finished the tea, he would squeeze the lemon in the water, add sugar, viola', lemonade on the house!!!!

In the comic strip, "Smilin' Jack" there was an obese character appropriately named, "Fat Stuff".

Whimpy the Chimp was not actually in the photo - button-popping is coming back to Gainesville this summer! See you Trudy.

What do you mean "button popping" is coming back to Gainesville. Did Gary lose weight?
