F. Less well known, because he appears in the Blandings books rather than in the Jeeves and Wooster series.

Boy, howdy. B could go either way. Either it was chosen by TEd, our master cabinet maker, or he supplied it himself as a wrong answer, thinking to catch us all.

D is just too convoluted and there is no justification for the D. Or the 406, for that matter.

The rest are all enticing but I connect with I.

c, d and e seem to all be voteless.
d is right out.
I'm bumfoozled to the c or e ...

edit:
c just sounds so pedestrian; but on fourth thought, I can't bring myself to vote for e.

but wait! what about k??

ok, I'm going into mole mode. (hi F'babe!)

Really? I ate up the entire Blandings series in my teens, and now physically resemble the Empress, but can't remember Desman.

OOOh! OOOh! Now we have TWO wodehouse aficionadoes, holding opposite views as to the existence of the character Desman. Nice one!

WAIT! (pant...pant..pant) I just returned from British Columbia this morning where I encountered fields and fields of blooming "desmans" in the flesh. I hope, I hope, I'm not too late...

So Pigmaster please, disregard my earlier submission of "G",
I now vote for "J" because I need the points.
