This (for those of you too young to remember) is Les Nessman, from the TV show "WKRP in Cincinnati". He was the hapless news director who was prone to self-injury and mispronunciation. I actually own a stuffed dog named Les, because of an episode where he reported on a dog show, and announced the winner to be a "chi-hooie-hooie" dog (he meant Chihuaha).
Despite his flaws, Les was extremely kind and lovable. Here's to our geekly co-workers, family members and friends. Give 'em a hug....and possibly a Band-aid.
