There's a very funny S.J. Perelman travel book in which he describes the first efforts at contact lenses. IIRC, it dates from around 1948.

@Eli and Brian

If you were in Qatar and were approached by Lord Monckton, would you

A) punch him in the face
B) spit on him
C) avoid him
D) heckle him
E) none of the above

If I saw Al Gore, I would probably just heckle him, although if I had a delicious pie handy i would throw it at him I think also.

Lumpus spunkydrawers--

If I met Monckton, I would deal with him in a civil manner, but eviscerate him with evidence.

Blue Rondo a la Turk and Take Five became so popular that they were on jukeboxes in luncheonettes. Which is sensational for a jazz tune.
