"The Wizards of Waverly Place" was a popular Disney television show, but this enigma was, in real life, the original wizard of Waverly.

Hint: This one really isn't that difficult. And, for most of you it should be easy. (I just made sure the question was hard to Google for an answer.)

Correct. If you didn't get it, landmark, I would have been very disappointed in you. Smile

Annemann was born in East Waverly (Tioga County), New York and his ashes are buried in Waverly. "Enigma" was a reference to his early publicity which used the name "Annemann the Enigma."

Back to you.

He was one for the ages. He would have enjoyed Ken Weber's prank on you no end. Smile You do a great job continuing his legacy as a performer and eclectic creator.

Answer: The lover of this ancient blonde courtesan, accused in an all-male court of profaning the Greek religious festivals, bared her beautiful breasts, arguing that one with such God-given attributes could only be evidence of the Gods' glory.

I did that when I was defending a stripper in Paterson Municipal Court.

:eek:

But, anyway, my question is "Who was Phryne, the courtesan of Hypereides?"

Yep- that's pretty much what went down in Paterson. I asked the stripper to tell the Court exactly what she was doing just before her arrest. She decided to demonstrate instead. The judge and the arresting officer started laughing so hard that I managed to get the case dismissed (after getting her to put her shirt back on).

Here's one-

I don't have a guess Bob ... not much good at this game. But regarding your story: That's hilarious! That's one for the Speaker's Corner thread.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Maybe time for a clue?

Are we looking for actual letters of the alphabet? Or "little letters" of some sort, as in notes, etc. ?
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Very good, Paul. If you didn't get it with that clue I would have been surprised. And if you've read my books you'd know that the word "billet" comes from the French "billet doux" which refers to a short letter or love note. When Spiritualism became popular in the mid-19th Century, mediums began conducting "Billet reading seances" in which the sitters would write short notes to those dear departed they wanted to communicate with.

To this day, mediums still refer to those small pieces of paper we use as billets. Only magicians seem to think that the word is simply a magic term that shouldn't be used when talking to laymen.

And, of course, many careers were made with nothing more than a few billets and some pencils- Charles Foster, Bert Reese, Ted Annemann, Dunninger, and innumerable others (including me!) have made a living with little else.

The ball's in your court now, Paul.
