My Name in History

Thank you Melanie, for the tag. The rules? (1) Google your name. (2) Repost (w/a link) the picture of the oddest, craziest, strangest, coolest, oldest, etc. person that shares your name. Post as many as you like, then pass it on.

The most memorable Eugene I could find was Eugene the Jeep, from the old Popeye cartoons. More than once, as a young boy, I was called a “Jeep”-- and I hated it.

One of the original Little Rascals, Eugene Pineapple Jackson, is shown here in one of his later films.

Pineapple's son, Eugene III Jackson, shown below, was also an actor. Among his early films were Shenandoah. In addition to his action, Junior also has an impressive resume behind the camera. It includes classic television programs like Emergency, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Columbo, The Six Million Dollar Man, and Mork and Mindy, as well as the more recent hits, Hearts Afire, Hunter, Cheers, Hill Street Blues, and Seinfeld.

That’s enough for now. And now I’d like to tag the following people: Susan, Jennifer, Paisley, and Cath.

Oh, you have cool stories of Eugene's. :) That was some weird syntax there but you know what I meant! lol. The Popeye thing made me laugh. Sorry if it scarred you as a child. I was often referred to as "Smelly Melly" if it makes you feel better.
