Here's to you! James does his Charlie Chan impression

Did You Know? - Charlie Chan is a fictional Chinese-American detective created by Earl Derr Biggers. Loosely based on Honolulu detective Chang Apana, Biggers conceived of the benevolent and heroic Chan as an alternative to Yellow Peril stereotypes, such as villains like Fu Manchu. Chan is a detective for the Honolulu police, though many stories feature Chan traveling the world as he investigates mysteries and solves crimes.

Chan first appeared in Biggers' novels, but went on to be featured in a number of media. Over four dozen films featuring Charlie Chan have been made, beginning in 1926. The character was at first portrayed by Asian actors, and the films met with little success. In 1931, the Fox Film Corporation cast Swedish actor Warner Oland as Chan in Charlie Chan Carries On; the film was a success, and Fox went on to produce 15 more Chan films with Oland in the title role. After Oland's death, American actor Sidney Toler was cast as Chan; Toler made 22 Chan films, first for Fox and then for Monogram Studios. After Toler's death, six more films were made, starring Roland Winters.

Not to be out done

Did You Know? - John reveals his secret!

1. Put the concave surface of a clean regular teaspoon to your nose, with the handle pointing vertically down.

2. Hold the spoon lightly and gently begin to rub it downward against your nose. Exert a slight pressure on the downstroke but lift slightly and give no pressure on the upstroke. Eventually you will feel a slight tendency for the spoon to resist on the downstroke.

3. Gently take your hand away and the spoon will hang from your nose. You don't need to put anything on the spoon. When you are doing this correctly, you don't need to hold your head back.
