Query:

I am assuming that I am not the only person that was operating under the misconception that Johnny Mathis was of Italian descent. How did this happen? (I'm blaming the sweaters.)

Maybe that's why he sang Mona Lisa?

Wow! Thanks for the link. That man was first in the talent line. Jeebus, save some for the rest of us!

Let's see, shall I join the Olympics or make hit records or become a culinary master? How bout all three!

I never gave it much thought, but I assumed he was Italian.

He’s not Italian? But his breath reeks of garlic and he won’t shut up about how the Godfather is the greatest movie ever made.

I always thought he was biracial.

Del, isn't that EVERY guy's favorite movie ever? Top 5, anyway? "Leave the gun. Take the canoli."

Honestly, I always thought he was Jewish. Man, was I off.

I didn't even think he was still alive. Sorry Johnny.

He's a Martian isn't he?

I've always been under the impression that Johnny Mathis is pure love.

We visited some friends a few Christmases ago and all they played were Johnny Mathis Christmas songs. I now associate Johnny Mathis with spending Christmas in Florida.

Additionally, my mom was friends with a couple who bought their house from Johnny Mathis. So the degrees of spearation between he and I are like two.

Although reading his Wikipedia entry now, it maye have been someone else. Apparently he never lived in Illinois. My mom had a way of confusing minor celebrities like that.

I bet it was Lou Rawls.
