Remembering Roger -- The Entertainer

the Jolly Roger Another Grandpa Roger specialty is entertainment; he had an enormous collection of riddles, limericks and weird stories, and while not exactly fond of dressing up, got totally into the spirit of the thing whenever he did.

With a name like Roger, of course, pirate material was pretty much second nature, but like the inscrutible Jeremy Malcolm does, he had an astonishing thespian repertoire to draw upon at need.

Don’t try this at home, kiddies, lest someone pat you on the back at an inopportune moment.
