Who wants to bet that Raymond had to deal with lots of teazie-weasie from his friendie-wendies over this endorsement?

He's cute. I'd do Mr. Teazie Weazie, if I weren't sure he was dead.
Known to television viewers?
Hmm... okay, to research this one. :-)
I remember him well from BBC television back in the 50's. "Teazie-Weazie" was as much his standard catch-phrase as "Bam" is nowadays for a certain TV chef. In those days, he was considered somewhat outrageous... a Liberace for his time!
He really reminds me of the wonderful (very gay) character actor Billy DeWolfe.
