Turpin Impostor

I am sure you recall the great regurgitation artist Hadji Ali, so very recently a subject of discussion. Well, our friend Mr. Ward has been on youtube and uncovered a video of his act. WARNING: I cannot vouch for it! Being the squeamish sort, I haven't forced myself to watch it yet. Here's what Mr. Ward says about it, though: "The highlight - Ali spits a geyser of water at Ben Turpin. Unfortunately, it turned out to just be annoying Ben Turpin wannabe James Finlayson." I can say that for a change I actually enjoyed an anonymous youtube comment: "There needs to be a fountain of this man with water spewing perpetually from the mouth. It is absolutely imperative."
