That's the correct Scatman....all the shining video's of the Scatman I could find had him taking an ax to the chest. So posted the factoid on the Scatman.....remember Hong Kong Phooey!

In December of 2000 I took one of these 17 miles offshore on the ice into the Beaufort Sea in the Arctic. Very cool, but a bit unnerving; especially when you crossed the leads (http://www.thepoles.com/expguide/leads.htm).
