I received a comment from a new reader (or, perhaps a long-time reader, but ... at the very least... a new commenter). Regardless, his name is Bert. Welcome Bert.
It made me think of Bert & Ernie.
Does anyone know where the names for Bert & Ernie came from?
I'll give you a hint.... they weren't originally muppet names.
In fact, they'd been used on the Silver Screen LONG before Jim Henson was a household name...
Muse over that, throw out some answers, and I'll come back with the Real Answer in the next day or two.
(Here's another little hint: those of you who know me know that I LOVE the source where these names originally came from.... and that's ALL I'm going to say....)
