The news that a 3,000-year-old wooden wheel had been found in Britain was, of course, exciting. But even more exciting was who was standing at its side when the wheel recently made its debut to the public.
It was none other than the late, great crooner Perry Como, dead since 2001, but granted a special earth-visit pass by St. Peter, who knew that "Round and Round" (written by Joe Shapiro and Lou Stallman) was one of Como's hit tunes.
There was Perry in living color, looking as relaxed as he always did when he was alive, singing:
Find a wheel and it goes round, round, round
As it skims along with a happy sound
As it goes along the ground, ground, ground
Till it leads you to the one you love
Needless to say, the crowd was delighted. Fans even got the star to finish off his performance by singing another one of his hits, "It's Impossible."
You of little faith, you may think this tale is impossible. You're wrong, and Pat Sajak and Vanna White, two other wheel "personnel," have the evidence to prove it. They were in the crowd and taped the entire proceedings.
Watch for the clip on a special edition of "Wheel of Fortune." And be sure to sing along!
