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.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. I got nothing…you should see our national comedians and you´d understand why I am not more into this branch of entertainment 🙂

  4. 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!

  5. 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.
