Quite Simply, The Best

I just said it in the title.

Bulk Chuckles ,

Greatest Show of All Time

Tom Scharpling, the best one to ever do it, at the height of his powers. Nothing will ever come close to being this great again.

Good Guise, Michelin Man

Tom Scharpling, the Moe Howard of Montclair, NJ, is in charge of your days and your nights. Tom’s in charge of your wrongs and your rights. Watch out, you White Devils!
He is the inspiration for Oswald Cobblepot in “The Batman,” so he has that going for him.
