WHAT'S IN A NAME?

PETER PAN looks like a girl in the above illustration, which makes me wonder if that's where Panto's custom of him being played by a woman comes from.  Probably not, but that isn't why I called you all together, agents of Crivens.  No, just wanted to say (because there's bound to be some of you who don't know) that the name WENDY didn't exist until author J.M. BARRIE invented it for his famous book.  Interesting that, eh?

Gasp! You mean you didn't believe me, PS? Would I lie to you? I'm as honest as the day is long. (Nights are fair drawing in these days, eh?)
