Dick Button

Did you watch ice skating last weekend? I did. This is not a common occurrence for me but it reminded me that a regular commentator for these competitions is none other than Mr. Dick Button.

Now, you can put "Dick" in front of pretty much any name and it is funny. We've been doing this since 5th grade and shockingly, it never, ever gets old. Dick Handy! Dick Burns! Dick Gaylord!

But Dick Button might be the best one of all.

It conjures all sorts of hilarious images and applications. What would a dick button look like? Is it a button ON the dick or a button that when pressed, causes a dick to appear? Or causes one's dick to do something really special?

Perhaps it is merely a novelty button that one pins to one's chest. Or a super-stylish way to adorn shirts and jackets.

One thing I didn't know is that Dick Button was one of the greatest figure skaters of all time. The first to land a double axel in competition and the inventor of the spin known as the flying camel!

Here's to ya Mr Button!
