  • Andrew Cockburn: There are actually two guys with this awesome name. One is an Irish Journalist (we have yet to confirm whether he is working on a story about STDs). The other is an Australian ornithologist, which I think has to do with birds (we have yet to confirm whether his focus is the cockatoo)
  • Richard Weiner: A. Hill emailed us to let us know that she knew of a police officer named Richard Weiner. That seemed almost too good to be true, so we googled the name to cover our bases. After all, who would name their child Dick Weiner? It turns out, lots of people did. There's Richard Weiner the Dallas neurosurgeon, Richard Weiner the executive producer of "Searching for Orson" and Richard Weiner the author of "The Skinny About Best Boys, Dollies, Green Rooms, Leads, and other Media Lingo." And that's just the start of it!
  • Can you figure out who these guys are? If not, they are Yakov Smirnoff, Gomer Pyle, Boutros Boutros Ghali, and Dick Trickle
