Treehouse of Horror

You would think that if you wanted to commit suicide there are easier ways to do it than this. At least he kept a diary to chronicle why he did it.

Speaking of people who kept diaries...

Today is somebody's birthday! Whose Birthday? Humanitarian and hider of Anne Frank Miep Gies' Birthday. How Old Is She? 1,2,3,4... 99! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Miep Gies' name appears on "Deep Sleepers'" and "Daddy to Be Dead Mates'" rosters

  • Gies avoided arrest for hiding the Franks because the officer who came to question her was Austrian. Gies was born in Vienna, Austria which led the officer to felt a connection to her.
They could reminisce of days eating wiener schnitzel and singing Mozart tunes.

Today is somebody else's birthday! Whose Birthday? Actor Kevin McCarthy's Birthday. How Old Is He? 1,2,3,4... 94! And Never been Kissed By... Death

Kevin McCarthy's name appears on "Whoaa-ooah, Dying on the Edge's" roster
  • McCarthy was quite accomplished at a young age in the theater. In 1949, he was cast as Biff in the London company of Death of a Salesman, starring Paul Muni. A film was made in 1951 and he was nominated for an Academy Award for his role.
Since he didn't win, he must have been liked, but not well liked.

... And Many More!
