Follow the money 2

-       Anthony Starkins

[1]  "I'm an Ordinary Man", from the brilliant My Fair Lady, by Lerner & Lowe.   Sung by Rex Harrison in both the London stage play and the movie.  Harrison won an Oscar for his role as Professor Higgins.  Audrey Hepburn was, sadly, woefully miscast as Eliza Doolittle.

[2]  'Blue chip' derived from a high-value poker counter, first coined in 1904.  It was first used in a stock-market sense in 1929, just before the Great Crash.  

[3]  'World Championship Wresting' was neither a world championship nor wrestling.  But the Sunday noonday show on Channel Nine, during the 1960s, commentated by the irrepressible Jack 'wow' Little was mandatory viewing for young boys.
