    “It was hell,” Recalls former child.

    I don’t remember seeing that one on the list. Nice obscure Kliban reference.

  2. Paul Hooson says:

    Thank you, I was more inspired for this caption than usual. I’m a little surprised that no one recognized my Special Head caption. He was the contestant on AMERICA’S GOT TALENT that did a version of the Indian fakir trick with a cane that sticks into a steel base under a rug, and then appears to levitate himself, using a small chair harness under his robe. At first he was a phenomenon, but then he charged that AGT was rigged, and he was forced by NBC to do a third round levitation trick which was flawed to eliminate him from the contest.

  3. John430 says:

    Wow, I got first place! That Papal Indulgence award from Rodney really works!

    Isn’t every Kliban reference obscure? I thought I was the only person on earth who even remembered the guy…
