Kelp Reference

Although such a thing hardly seems possible, I appear to have missed a Jerry Lewis reference in yesterday's New York Times. Forgive me! In a theater review, a character is described as being "tricked out with a Jerry Lewis overbite." Now I am sure that Ben Brantley realizes that Jerry Lewis does not have an overbite. I assume he is thinking of Julius Kelp, the nutty professor in the film of that title. I refer Mr. Brantley to my recent Stanley Belt reference as a guide. Gosh, I'm glad that's settled.
