A fantastic candid of our lad:

I also have an extraordinarily rare gag photo of Robert Woolsey but I'm not sure if I should post it. The content is a bit, errr, adult themed...
I will consult fellow fathers-god to determine just how many feathers would be ruffled.

CAUTION: The following photo is of questionable taste and contains nudity
(however mock) and may possibly offend.

It fact, it is brilliantly tasteless no matter how one looks at it.

Please DO NOT scroll down any further if you are:

A. under 18.

B. easily offended

C. agitated by depictions of a long dead comedian's... graphic sense of humor.

Do not say that we didn't warn you. All complaints will be hooted down vigorously.


Here is your last chance to bail:

Herewith is a photo of Robert Woolsey and friend.

If I recall the story correctly, someone at the studio made this gag photo
for Bob during the filming of SO THIS IS AFRICA. He, in turn, sent copies
to co-workers, friends, family and the unsuspecting in an attempt to both
shock and confound. At least that's how I heard it.

Paging Mr. Watz: Are you able to verify this tale?

-- PG

(FYI -- I usually refer to this still as "So This Is Bob...")
