Hairy Faced Dick

I randomly came across a picture of Rex Harrison today which, of course, made me think of the classic “My Fair Lady” … which prompted me to remember that time when I was a para-educator in a senior English class.

We were reading “Pygmalion” as a class and came across the phrase “They call me Hairy Faced Dick.”

A strangled laugh escaped my lips; I covered it with a fake cough, but no one was fooled… mostly because I was the only one who thought the line was funny.
