In the early 1950's a show aired that became the longest running tv show in history. It was called "Whats my line."

Mystery contestants would appear on the show and the expert panel would try to guess the occupation of the mystery guest through a series of questions. They usually failed.

You are invited to guess this ominous looking creatures identity and occupation. You may not know him but he knows you!

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
