Yep! I won a pair of underwear today! True story.

Okay, this will probably be very hard. (Of course, when I say that, someone will have his picture hanging above their mantle and will get it right away!)

Who is this, and what is he known for? He is known for a few things, but I am looking for the thing he invented.

Is it Calvin Dodd MacCracken, inventor of the electric hot dog cooker?

LOL at expatgirl (they belonged to Hanes! lol) and BT's Grecian Formula! Maybe he is your long-lost uncle, BT!

No to the guesses so far.

He was a doctor, and what he invented came from the two things he dealt with in his practice. I would be willing to bet that we have all used (and possibly cursed) his invention.

I was going to guess Norman Borlaug, but I don't remember him with that much hair.

What country is the mystery guy from?
