Hmmm, I pictured Wilde more as a catcher, but that only shows what I know ...

Which shows that, on any given week, at least 3 people lie in their FJ recording. :D

I trust DHicton's and pinkfreud's claims to the Liederkranz get, and I know one person in real life (well, I've met Doug, but I'm talking here about a person I only know IRL) who knew it. I don't know who the third poll voter was.
