Fred

I was just proofreading something for the A Christmas Carol playbill. Evidently, Charles Dickens had a sickly younger brother known as “Tiny Fred.” While I don’t think it’s funny to have (or be) a sickly younger brother, the name Tiny Fred makes me laugh. Sounds like one of those tough gansta midgets, wearing the gold chains and carrying a gun. THAT guy would’ve told Scrooge to kiss his balls. Go get ’em, shorty!
