We All Know What That Means

New short poll: are your ears pierced?

For the younger crowd, Mutt and Jeff is an old legacy strip that I remember reading when I was a kid.  It was winding down then.  It ran from 1907 (!) to 1982.

I figure there's three types of people out there:
1. those who know "Mutt and Jeff."
2. those who have heard the expression "mutt and jeff," meaning one tall person, one short one.  Maybe on a detective show where a witness describes the perps as "mutt and jeff types."  This is whence the expression came.
3. those who have no idea what I'm talking about.

Jeff!  We need to talk.
