Here's A Curious Fact



In 1975 I really did appear in this. I was 11, had a swarthy fake tan, drawn on mustache, a head kerchief and my big star turn song line was "This little duckie was a naughty little duckie!".

It was mortifying.

So is your moment the one which is confined to a footnote on page 31?

Ha, YES! That's my musical theatre career... a footnote! The teacher obviously took this to heart, because there was a whole crowd of us. I don't remember the other animals, but I drew the short straw with the DUCKIE. I was a rather... sensitive... proto-homo of a child, and I still remember a few sniggers. The mortifying bit is on page 30.

I'm sure you were not only a naughty duckie, but a PRECIOUS one as well. A darling duckie. An ooziewoozie, tchoo-tchoo-tchooie, mummy's little duckums duckie. I feel your pain.

I would wager your over-the-top performance ate the stage sets.

"...I HAD a DREAM, a DREAM about you, baby..."

Peener, precious wecious indeed.

MG, yes! I put the GYPSY! in Little Gypsy Gay. More Merman than even Ethel herself.

Ironically, right now, the right guy with the right swarthy tan, and the right drawn on mustache, singing, "this little duckie was a naughty little duckie!" could work equally well for porn.
