TINY TIM and his highly-regarded magnum opus, TIPTOE THROUGH THE TULIPS!

As a poor, anemic kid, he dreamed that one day he’d be chauffeured in a Rolls or a Jag (German luxury cars, it seems, were not his style.)

Clue: It all came true, and he’s still rolling today!

Oh, TINY Tim! I was wracking my brain, thinking Tim who? Duh!

Ok, Mr. B.: MICK JAGGER.

"Roberto Clemente threw the ball 'ard", according to the BBC announcer. Mr. C. took some exception to this, bellowing, "I am a Titan" icily. "When I throw a ball, it blazes".

Clue: Not terribly well-known, but what he discovered is. It's included as is. More or less.

ROBERT BALLARD, who discovered the TITANIC!

The obnoxious teacher would poke and jab each student who did not earn sufficient “attaboys” for the day’s lesson.

Clue: I wish they all could be Ca…, er, good students

Getting a bit liberal with your clues, aren't we Beck. Besides, you and Jackie are dating yourselves, and I not sure that that is legal. Come, let us move into the hot new now of the 21st Century...

An innocent lad - young, pretty, not very bright, but betting against the conventions of the day - has now gotten her 15 minutes of fame in the androgynous world of pop music.

Clue: In desperation I've edited out two extraneous phrases and edited in a descriptive clue or two. Please? cry

See post #190357 on page 3! We're way ahead of the gagame!

OK, JJ - you asked for it:

Though it may seem a tad short, such a riddle is best!

Clue: H-21. Espy the answer, if you can!
