Celebrity encounter: Arte Johnson
Mar 3, 2006 - 03:02 PMArte has enjoyed a long and successful career, but my strongest memories of him are from those "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" appearances as a German soldier ("Veddy interesting...") and Tyrone F. Horneigh, the dirty old man who always hit on (and was subsequently hit by) Ruth Buzzi. Arte has never failed to make me chuckle.
I walked downhill toward the green, preparing to ask: "Mr. Johnson, may I take your picture?"
But before I could say anything, Arte cracked me up again, by striking this priceless pose (click image for full-length photo).
