Who are these people who have "Invaded" my blog? And what do they all have in common? (See the FUN clues below the pictures)


1. His malapropisms probably drove his English teachers into early retirement.
2. Remembered for his work for world peace, he also discovered that laughter can actually be an effective relief for chronic pain.
3. Do you know what "links" this man to the others on this page?
4. Once, during a televised interview, Dick Cavett asked him, "Perhaps you'd like two more chairs to contain your giant intellect?"
5. Sure, you can ask her for a date. But there is just one little prerequisite.
6. He made the most of a great source of power.
7. "Why, he wouldn't even harm a fly."
8. Get outa the way when he comes stormin' in.
9. If he had a blog, he would only post once a week.
10. Sorry. I just couldn't resist.

p.s. (Google and Wiki have been known to be able to make ANYONE a rock & roll fan of the early '60s.)
