Okay, most of us know that Jack didn't really wear a toupee, and that it was just one of the trappings of his radio/tv persona, like his vanity and stinginess, or scripted bits like the Maxwell, the vault, his violin teacher, etc.
However, I've always thought that the toupee jokes in particular really came from out of left field. It would make sense if his hair even LOOKED fake. However, his hair always appeared genuine to me, especially with his receding hairline. Can anyone tell me when -- and WHY -- the toupee jokes began?
