The name? Refrignuq. Refram Refrignuq. I'm here for Pussy. Pussy Gabor (the `lost' sister) Nubile prize-winning raconteur, spermologer and decorated World War II Zeppelin ace  Refram Refrignuq   love child of Evelyn Nesbit & William Howard Taft; abducted from hospital maternity ward by Nesbit's jealous ex-lover (Assistant Secretary of State R. Refrignuqvist) and spirited to Howland Island where he was abandoned with two Dingos and a soft-shelled crab named Maurice; years later he was accidentally discovered & subsequently returned to Washington, D.C. by Frank Buck during the worldwide search for Amelia Earhart's flight data recorder after her hydrogen-powered dirigible exploded during re-entry from her pioneering sub-orbital transit through the Van Allen radiation belt; upon taking up his manhood in the national spotlight he ran for president as a third-party candidate under the banner (Bull Moose) of his father's old rival in the 1940 election, losing narrowly to Hitler in the Electoral College despite a clear plurality amongst deceased Chicago voters; enlisting in the French Domestic Legion following the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald at Pearl Harbor, his exploits in the brothels of Paris are unmatched to this day; after the war and subsequent to commanding NATO's classified "Bay of Pigs" Laotian incursion, he spent several years with the Tennessee Valley Authority under the pseudonym "Red" E. Kilowatt coordinating their M.K.Ultra "Power to the People" rural electrification campaign - it was during this time that he is alleged to have sired one or more offspring, including a recent president and a former Speaker of the House; his virality, rigor and impudence were credited by Timothy Leary & Pat Buchanan as having inspired the Free Love movement, Watergate breakin and Tacoma Narrows bridge collapse; now in semi-retirement, he co-directs the G. Gordon Liddy Institute for Advanced Onanism at Ma·to Tepee, Wyoming
