Do you have the right Sheriff Perkins anonymous?

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post, "I am not a serial grandstander!"

David Chartrand resembles Sheriff Perkins. For that matter, Murray Trachtenberg looks like Gene Shalit.
Dear Anonymous:

Sheriff Perkins One-Man-Band sings, picks the guitar and kicks the drum in the unexplored territories of rockabilly-country-hardcore with sex-oriened lyrics.

Thank you for writing. This was the only Sheriff Perkins we could find when we Googled the name. David Chartrand is much, much better looking and far too handsome to be confused with SP. Plus as far as we know he can't play the banjo. Are you sure you've got the right Sheriff?

President Chartrand, please accept our profound, heartfelt apology on behalf of the anonymous reader. We don't know how they could have gotten it so wrong unless, ".....nudge, nudge - wink, wink know what we mean, know what we mean?"

As for MMF lawyer Murray Trachtenberg, would the real Murray Trachtenberg please stand up:

This time our reader did much better. Laugh as you will, a respected Winnipeg attorney who has faced Counselor Trachtenberg in court and given him a good legal thrashing also commented on his resemblance to Gene Shalit (right). However, we think he looks more like Groucho Marks minus the cigar and sense of humour.

For many years, Gene Shalit was the book and film critic for NBC's The Today Show.

Groucho Marx along with brothers Chico and Harpo formed a famous comedy team during the 1950-1960s. Groucho died in 1977. Our favourite line, "Who you going to believe me or your lying eyes?"
