Clark was always never considered to be the 7th member of the Monty Python team,and was never the source of many sketches.He also wrote many christmas carols too,all of which are still not sung today.Photo's of Clark are rare but here's one from the archives http://www.travelphotographer.com/album ... .sized.jpg

er...well I'll give it a go...The acute nasopharyngitis, often known as the common cold is a mild viral infectious disease of the nose and throat; the upper respiratory system. Symptoms include sneezing, sniffling, nasal congestion; scratchy, sore, or phlegmy throat; coughing; headache; and tiredness. Colds typically last three to five days, with residual coughing lasting up to three weeks. As its name suggests, it is the most common of all human diseases, infecting subjects at an average rate of slightly over one infection per year per person. Infection rates greater than three infections per year per person are not uncommon in some populations. Children and their caretakers are at a higher risk, probably due to the high population density of schools and the fact that transmission to family members is highly efficient.

The common cold belongs to the upper respiratory tract infections. It is different from influenza, a more severe viral infection of the respiratory tract that shows the additional symptoms of rapidly rising fever, chills, and body and muscle aches. While the common cold itself is rarely life threatening, its complications, such as pneumonia, can very well be.
Famous people who were known to suffer from colds include Clarke Gable.

OK, and now the REAL answer.

Clark Gable is a movie star. Today his most famous movie is no doubt "Gone with the wind", 1939, got some oscars. Try http://www.imdb.com for more details.

His name rhymes with table, so that's why he's in the song.

The other people who replied probably did not know the answer because their average age is 15, so they started throwing in nonsense instead of the proper, real, undisputeable answer.

i'll take slight offense at that.

personally, i didn't give an answer. i did have a general idea of who clark gable was/is, but didn't put it up.

Well I was talking about your average mental age only, so no offense should be taken.
