For years my mother would say, "your room looks like Fibber McGee's closet." I would think, what the heck was she talking about. I found out that Fibber McGee and Molly was a long running radio show from 1935 to 1959. I was thinking, "why would the main character's name be Fibber." I realized that this was not his first name, but a adjective describing his character. With that in mine, back in the thirties, forties and fifties fibber was more of a jokester, not a liar.
Some of the other characters in the series included Molly, Throckmorton P. Gildersleeve, Foggy Williams, Wallace Wimple, Nick Depopoulous and Millicent Carstairs. There are some really weird names from this show.
Oh, by the way... Fibber McGee's closet was supposedly a mess and every time he opened it, house hold clutter would fall all over him and Molly. After all these years my room still looks like Fiber McGee's closet. Does yours?
