One could only wish to be as interesting as he, introducing popcorn to gay Paree. No, not that type of gay, not that there's anything wrong with it.

Was he related to the guys who brought the butter dish to Belshazzar and the tent peg to the house of Rashomon?

If it was burnt microwave office popcorn, I say 'good riddance.'

Sounds like an interesting guy. The world is full of classy people whom one never finds out about. If it hadn't been for the Popcorn angle, the obit wouldn't have been posted here.

Then there's us.

It had to be easier than introducing tobacco to England.

Paris concludes: "This corn poppèd tastes like carton. We must sneer at Americans forever. They must be savages if they think this is a treat."

I believe Larry Carp actually met Billy Pilgrim after the war, in company with his cousin Kilgore Trout.

Possible shenanigans. Was his middle name Peri? As in pericarp, the name for the hull.
