T.D.I.H. - Jan 8

On this day in 1926, Soupy Sales was born. His original name was Milton Supman. Soupy was most famous for developing pie throwing into an art. I'm really too young to remember Soupy, (especially since so much of my early life was spent in England) however I still consider him one of my favorites from the late 60's, early 70's period of television. He hosted adult variety shows, children's morning shows and was a frequesnt guest on game shows. The video below is a great tribute created and performed by Barry Mitchell.
