Sammy Davis Jr., had he been present for the birth of Christ"

From Wikipedia: "Though often referenced in pop culture, Davis Jr.'s notorious "crazy fake-eyeball trick" was never been captured on film, nor was it often performed. Towards the end of his career, after swearing off caffeine, Davis Jr. told his biographer the trick was "not something I'm particularly proud of. Nowadays I only do it on Christmas morning, or sometimes for babies or barnyard animals." [citation needed]

I just received the card today of all days. Needless to say I was rather shocked, as I expected Mr. Davis to be doing a simple serenade or something, but the artwork is pristine as usual.
