Whats my line?

In the early 1950's a show aired that became the longest running tv show in history. It was called "Whats my line."

Mystery contestants would appear on the show and the expert panel would try to guess the occupation of the mystery guest through a series of questions. They usually failed.

You are invited to guess this ominous looking creatures identity and occupation. You may not know him but he knows you!

No he is not an American citizen although that is where his infamy came to an end.

Re: Whats my line?

Social media includes web-based and mobile technologies used to turn communication into interactive dialogue.

No he is not involved in that.

No, what he does is not a game. He rarely, if ever designs anything that would bring joy to people. Look at his picture.

Re: Whats my line?

He is not that skilled of a programmer but he wishes he were. Also he is not a hacker but rather he is despised by them.
