Tyrone Horneigh was the old man who would go up to Ruth Buzzi while she was sitting at the bus stop - she always ended up beating him with her purse. The last name is obviously “Horny,” but to get it past the censors Johnson insisted it was pronounced “Horn-eye.”

Don’t know Toots.

Look, I can see the Person In Question having to be famous enough to be known by another player, but for the IQs? That seems overboard to me.

That’s how we’ve done it before. If it’s so obscure that no one else knows it except the asker, the GM can’t be expected to know it either. Same rule for IQs and DQs, if challenged.
