Lispers


I've been watching a lot of Robin Hood TV shows lately. The ones made in England starring Richard Greene. An actor named Alan Wheatley was cast as the Sheriff of Nottingham and I noticed he had a minor but unmistakable lisp. That got me to thinking of other actors who had lisps. Humphrey Bogart and Boris Karloff come to mind. Daffy Duck? That's a stretch. I once had a girlfriend with a little lisp, too. Can you think of any others?

Sylvester the cat?

Jeez, Cap'n! I was looking forward to a pic of the Stooges on 3 Days to Go Day. You owe me one.

As to lisps: Does Baba Wawa count?

I'm on the fence about cartoon characters, but Sylvester would certainly count if I included them.

Patience, Evan. I still have 4 to go. But thanks for the idea.

Baba can't say her L's, which isn't the same as a lisp. I'm trying to remember if Gloria Grahame did.
