And I'm curious to know a) is the right answer reflexive to you, or did you think of the other guy first b) who the fuck are you, and where did you grow up?

I'm thinking of a conversation I had with an Indian co-worker, where we both got all schmoopy about this guy:

and I'm realising that I don't bump into Americans, for example, who think of him so fondly—is this because he wasn't present in US childhoods for people under 50, or because he was drowned out by Johnny-come-latelies with their single-bound foofurrah?

Basically—did you ever worship at the altar of Lee Falk?
