Below the fold. Ten points if you can identify the significance of the law firm mentioned in this recently released video.
Hat tip Cain
I’m pretty sure that’s just a placeholder name
Dewey, Cheatum & Howe!
Click & Clack!!!
From High Above Harvard Square, My Fair City!
My first thought was Leisure Suit Larry! Part three, I think.
I thought that was “Cheetham”. I musn’t be familiar with the source.
Actually, it’s: “Chief Legal Counsel Hugh Louis Dewey of Dewey, Cheetham & Howe” http://tinyurl.com/34aaw
Dewey, Cheatem, & Howe is a very old gag from vaudeville. The Three Stooges used it, and a cardboard standup of the Stooges with the firm’s nameplate is available online:
What? Car talk stole this gag? Why, I’ll murdify ‘em!
Filchem, Grabbit and Runn.
Or, if you like P G Wodehouse: Peabody, Peabody, Peabody, Peabody, Hoots, Toots and Peabody.
Last I visited Harvard Square, someone had a “Dewey, Cheatem, & Howe” sign displayed in an upstairs window.
Tomato, that has been there since at least the 90s, maybe the 80s (though I was not paying attention to this sort of detail in the 80s)
“Harvard Square” is a cover name for “Car Talk Plaza” and “Cambridge” is a cover name for “My Fair City.” You were looking at the Car Talk studio: http://www.cartalk.com/content/faq/images/dch.jpg
which is where they broadcast the show from.
